If you develop a complete application (a KMS by example), you will like to create a 
standart version that you don't have to customize. Customer A uses Oracle, B uses 
Sybase and C uses SQLserver, the best way for the connectivity part is real 
abstraction layer whatever you use for the application itself. You don't have to 
create new queries, stored procs and so on, every times you ve got a new rdmbs to work 
For your internal application needs, effectivly you will not change BD every day, and 
as far you respect SQL standarts, it's not a great jobs to move.
