By | Custom Software
Custom software development projects are a close collaboration between the client and development team. Your development team will directly impact the success of your project, and your experience during the process.  Identifying the right development team for your project is about more than just finding knowledgeable coders.

The resulting miscommunication can create challenges from the requirements phase all the way to implementation.

At Dobler Consulting, we have built relationships with many companies through (more…)

Why Choose a Custom Software Solution?

By | Custom Software
If you are familiar with the concept of custom software but still convinced it is not right for you, think again. Custom software isn’t just for the top tier businesses, projects are created on a case by case basis according to each client’s specific needs and budgetary constraints.

Is SQL PaaS Right for You?

By | Azure
With the arrival of the new year, you might be considering how SQL Server can better fit your company’s growth in 2019.  SQL Platform as a Service (PaaS) could be a viable option for managing essential database operations. With PaaS, your SQL Server workloads would run as a hosted service in the cloud with most database management functions maintained by the cloud service provider instead of your IT team. Top Reasons to Consider PaaS Operates completely within the cloud. PaaS provides developers with an environment to develop and deploy applications entirely within the cloud. This includes complex enterprise applications your company may need to solve business problems and simple cloud-based applications. Scaling is easy. You can pay-as-you-go. Service providers allow you to take advantage of advanced development tools as you need them, giving you more value at an affordable rate. Your bottom line increases. You no longer need to purchase software licenses, application infrastructure, or development tools. Finally, your development team can have the opportunity to focus on managing the applications and services they create while the cloud service provider manages the rest. Decrease coding time. The development tools PaaS can provide include some pre-coded application components (i.e., security features, directory services, workflow, etc.) (more…)

Understanding Blockchain, the Trending New Tool

By | Database Technology Trends
There’s been an increasing amount of buzz around blockchain technology lately, and people are more interested than ever before. “A new technology that functions as a distributed ledger within a decentralized network and promises greater security, lower transaction costs, etc.” is usually how it’s described. But what does all of this really mean? What is Blockchain? In its simplest form, Blockchain is a digital ledger (consider the general ledger your organization’s finance/accounting teams use) that stores information across a network of computers. It stores information in batches called “blocks,” that are linked together in a chronological fashion, similar to a chain of blocks. This information can be virtually anything, but try imagining it in terms of a financial transaction, since that’s probably the easiest to visualize. To illustrate, here’s what happens when you make a purchase: Imagine purchasing new software online from Microsoft (for illustrative purposes only). The block would store the date, time, and dollar amount of your purchase. It would also log information about who is making the transaction. For security purposes, your name would be recorded as a unique “digital signature,” more like a username instead of your actual name. Once your block has been verified and (more…)

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…)
