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% probability that a U.S. company will experience a breach in the next 24 months.
“We often think that companies fail because of starvation, but increasingly, in the digital age, companies are failing because of indigestion,” according to Dobler. “ Data can either be a lean creative advantage or it can be a bloated burden and security risk. The smart, scalable solutions we continue to evolve, by working closely with our clients, over the past 10 years, give me hope that the promise of big data is far greater than the burden of big data.”
The 10th year anniversary of a company is significant, according to the Small Business Administration only about 1/3rd of US companies make it that far. According to Dobler, there are four reasons for our success. “First and foremost, we have been able to assemble an extraordinarily skilled DBAs and a talented leadership team. Second, we have had long-term client relationships with some of worlds best companies. Third, the Tampa Bay technology hub is a source of continual innovation and inspiration. And finally, as outlined above, Remote Database Administration is an idea whose time has come.”
