Appreciate the need to document for tender

I appreciate the need to document the request for tender, but in this scenario it’s like they’ve gone too far.

They clearly need a cloud platform that can perform certain functions. I’d probably stop close to that and then broadly specify the functions.

When I studied databases at uni my impression was that 1 giant db system could run a whole organisation, of course when appropriately carved up and secured.

I continue to not comprehend why multiple separate db’s are needed to make a system.
