Reducing Application Errors with Application Continuity

By | Database Technology Trends
The database and application work hand in hand. When a client interacts with features on your website the application calls back to the database, and the database responds by giving it the right information or action. It’s a well-orchestrated conversation. When something happens that stops the conversation the application doesn’t get what it needs and the customer receives an error. This is where application continuity comes in. The idea is to enable maximum continuous communication between the application and your database instances even if there is an outage. This is a massive step in maintaining data integrity and improving the end user experience. The first step in understanding continuity is virtualization. This means that your database layers are virtualized in the stack and your infrastructure can create multiple nodes and instances for your workload, shuffling transaction and processing usage as needed. It is useful for scaling up and down easily and allows more redundancy to protect in case of outages. When one node goes down, whether for scheduled maintenance or unexpected failure, the other nodes are there to take its place and your customer is never the wiser. There are some software products that can help you design this virtualization (more…)

More Companies Will Die From Data indigestion Than From Data Starvation   Read about Trend 2 It’s True – companies today are swimming in data. And all the while, they are spending more money to create data, store data, manage data and secure data. Plus, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the Internet of Everything (IoE)  thing, is really just getting started. Data lakes, warehouses and silos are increasingly becoming obsolete words in the modern vocabulary of data management. A new approach of data architecture that facilitates orchestrating, securing and rapidly deploying data from various structured and unstructured sources to create actionable value is emerging. When data doubles every two years, the new tools and approaches to data management, real-time analytics and actionable solutions will no longer be nice-to-have. They will be got-to-have. Business data now is now a two-edged sword, it presents an existential opportunity and an existential crisis for your company.

The Rise of Real-Time Transactional Data   Read about Trend 1 Read about Trend 3 It seems analyst are hard at work to find the right wording that connects the promise of in-memory technology, to advanced analytics to multiple database sources, at the precise moment of transaction with the customer. Forrester calls it the odd-looking word  “translytic” as in “translytic data platforms”, Gartner uses the term “hybrid transaction / analytical processing, hopefully, HTAP for short, and IDC uses the rather straightforward “analytic transactional processing” which could mean everything and nothing at the same time. These rather athletic examples of concept mash-ups got me thinking about basketball and that maybe in-memory technology which makes it really all happen, is a point guard and that analytic engines and datasets are the centers and forwards of the game. And who was inarguably the greatest point guard in the history of the game, guy named Magic – Magic Johnson. So maybe the word the analyst are searching for is Magic… My point is, that technology and dry sounding words are not the point at all. Creating business value, creating Magic is the point. It’s when data meets analytics, meets creativity and meets the customer (more…)

It’s been a while since I last wrote in my blog. Luckily Google does its magic and still sends visitors to my blog.

This post will be very brief. Recently I was contacted by Sybase to write a couple of articles exclusively for Sybase. I agreed to this and that’s another reason why my blog got neglected.
