Tampa Bay CEO Council Helps Pack 11,665 Meals for 3,000 Families

By | Blog, Community, General Announcements
A little over 3,000,000 people live in the greater Tampa Bay region; roughly 700,000 residents experience hunger on a regular basis. This is an unacceptably high and unfortunately all too common statistic. The solutions to the long-term problem of hunger both globally and locally are complex. The solution to the immediate problem of hunger is often more straightforward – collect, package and distribute food donations and surpluses to people in need. To better understand the long-term problem of hunger in the region, the CEO Council of Tampa Bay participated in the short-term solution by organizing over 20 of their volunteers along with 60 others to organize, bag and box groceries for distribution of 11,665 meals to almost 3,000 families. “This does not solve the underlying problems of a lifetime of hunger but it does solve the immediate problem of hunger for a week.” According to Peter Dobler, CEO of Dobler Consulting “What we learned after spending the afternoon at Feeding Tampa Bay is that chronic hunger is more than just a lost paycheck, medical emergency or a housing crisis away. Once it begins, hunger can become a downward spinning cycle of poor health, lost hopes and missed opportunities.” The CEO (more…)

So often at gatherings or conferences, speakers meet by chance and the opportunity to talk is limited to more formal exchanges. We wanted Power-up to be different from the start – and the start, started here.” Events like the PoweredUp festival are a further recognition of Tampa Bay’s growing importance as a nationally recognized technology hub.

Dobler Consulting Celebrates Ten Year Milestone as a Managed Solutions Provider

By | Press Releases
  Remote Database Administration An Idea Whose Time Has Come…   Tampa Bay – February 22nd, 2018: In 2008 Peter Dobler, CEO and Founder of Dobler Consulting had an idea. He saw that database volumes were growing exponentially, that they were increasingly less secure and the talent pool of skilled Database Administrators (DBAs) was shrinking. His entrepreneurial idea was to attract the most talented DBA’s, give them the very best tools, training and processes; then remotely service large corporate databases more scalably and securely as a managed solution. “In 2008 the concept of Remote Database Administration was novel thinking to many, but not all, corporate CIOs,” said Dobler “I am forever grateful to the early adopters who saw that data growth, security and talent could either be an existential threat or a competitive opportunity for their enterprises.” The implications of exponential data growth are alarming, the research firms IDC confirms that from 2013 – 2020 data will grow from 4.4 trillion gigabytes to 44 trillion – a 10X factor. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 11% increase in the need for DBAs. And the Ponemon Institute estimates the average data breach cost US companies $3.5 million in 2017, with a 27% (more…)

Sybase ASE SBE Upgrade Path

By | Blog, Database Technology Trends, SAP ASE, SAP Sybase, Sybase
Sybase ASE SBE is the entry level ASE server from SAP comparable to the standard editions of Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server. For limited use or internal applications, its limitation of 256 concurrent connections and hard limit to physical CPU chips are not a problem. But the limitations to 2 CPU CPU sockets makes it nearly impossible to find hardware these days or migrating a physical server to a virtual environment. SAP replaced the ASE SBE server a few years ago with its new ASE Edge Edition server. This is actually a fully functional ASE Enterprise server only limited to a max of 8 cores and it runs on virtual servers. You could just go ahead and purchase a license to the new ASE Edge Edition to overcome the limitations, but what does this mean if you already invested into the ASE SBE server? Good News SAP will now allow legacy Sybase SBE customers to get conversion credit for existing licenses. That credit can then be used to acquire ASE Edge licenses and execute the new license transaction on SAP paper. You will also get a prorated rebate for any maintenance paid that will be applied to any new maintenance (more…)
