By | Azure, Database Technology Trends, Oracle, SAP HANA, SQL Server, Sybase
Cloud adoption continues to rise and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. As companies become more comfortable with the cloud platform as a tool, they are moving farther from on-prem setups. The newest trend shows many groups now using multi-cloud solutions. RightScale 201 State of the Cloud Report found that 81% of respondents have a multi-cloud environment. The organizational average was just under 5 clouds, including production and test environments. Why Multi-Cloud? – Each cloud provider has different strengths and weaknesses to offer.

As today’s trends bring more and more data to our fingertips, the next challenge is figuring out what to do with it all. The insights gained from proper data analysis have major implications for business. Proper data analysis takes careful consideration, appropriate infrastructure, and understanding of data science. What is Data Science? This is the process of using data to draw conclusions or predict outcomes. You probably use data science already. For example, a restaurant owner may keep records of which dishes are ordered. Over time, he may notice that chili is ordered more frequently on rainy days than on sunny days. This may encourage him to prepare larger batches of chili when the weather calls for rain. This is a very simple example of data science. You can see how understanding patterns and trends in data can help prepare your business. Data science can contribute to the following business improvements: Streamline Processes – You can use data science to analyze your business processes and identify areas to streamline. Looking at your website usage statistics may show areas where your potential clients are losing focus, or identify slow and frustrating pages in your online ordering forms. Identifying these patterns can (more…)

Expanding the Market: MS SQL Server 2017 and Linux

By | Blog, Database Technology Trends, SQL Server
Microsoft’s exciting cross-platform product, SQL Server 2017, is poised to reach a whole new audience. Recently this industry leader has joined the growing trend of support for open source solutions.  Our team is continually investigating new innovations for our clients, and we wanted to share what we have discovered about new features and performance. Why Now? Linux is becoming increasingly popular thanks to its security, stability, and efficiency.  Its design protects against virus and malware attacks with a complex architecture and secure user account structure.  With more and more businesses choosing Linux, Microsoft realized they were forcing clients to manage multiple environments by keeping SQL Server only on Windows.  Rohan Kumar, then General Manager of Microsoft Database Systems, discussed the decision with Frederic Lardinois for Tech Crunch.  “We had a couple of discussions in the past where it wasn’t approved,” he told Lardinois, but four years ago his team recognized the value of expanding, so they pitched the idea once again. “The biggest surprising part was that we were expecting a whole lot of back and forth. It was really surprising to see how quickly the decisions got made,” recalls Kumar. How? With the company’s support in place, Kumar’s team needed (more…)

Why You Should Consider Remote Database Support

According to Manpower’s 2015 Talent Shortage Survey, 38% of hiring managers worldwide are struggling to fill positions in their organizations. The talent shortage isn’t quite as bad in the U.S. as it is in many parts of the world, but even here, nearly one in three (32%) hiring managers report they are struggling. The most common reasons given for hiring difficulties are “Lack of Applicants” (35%) and “Lack of Technical Competencies” (34%). If you’ve tried to fill a vacancy in IT lately, particularly in a high-demand specialty like database management, I am probably not telling you anything new. Database management is a staffing problem because it contains so many specialties. Large organizations may be able to field teams of specialists, but most small to medium-sized businesses run very lean and can’t afford to hire a team member who only works on one aspect of database management. At this level, each team member is expected to master two or three aspects, and such skilled practitioners are even more difficult to find and hire than single-aspect specialists. When positions go unfilled, critical aspects of IT, from your production system to security, can be put at risk. If you try to cover the (more…)
