FileMaker Pro 11 has introduced several new features such as Filemaker Charts which allow you to illustrate and represent data in easy to read bar charts, pie charts etc.
For those terrified of MySQL, PHP or Oracle, FileMaker Pro 11 also takes the pain out by allowing you to administer both without any programming knowledge.
You can even add additional 'shadow' calculation fields to the filemaker side of the external SQL tables to make external SQL tables even more useful.
Cons - FileMaker GO cannot be used to create mac files (But it is FREE after all!) - Learning dj relational database theory and filemaker training should be a serious consideration for complex solutions.
Creating and managing your own database can be a daunting prospect for the uninitiated.
Searching is extremely fast and flexible.
Summary One of the most amazing features of FileMaker is this: Adding new fields to existing table schema, changing field names, table names, layout names, etc is free (wont break anything) since everything is referenced via internal ids under the hood.
