What is Custom Software Development?

By | Custom Software
Software is an essential component of any business. Processes like supply chain management, operations, customer service, and administration are facilitated by software solutions. There are two main types of software, off-the-shelf and custom. If your current software isn’t meeting your needs or you see room for process improvement or more efficiency, a custom solution might be just the thing you need. What is Custom Software? –  Typical mass-produced, or off-the-shelf, software products are created with a large audience in mind. These solutions are readily available and quick to implement, although you may sacrifice time trying to fit them into your workflow. Since they are made to be widely accepted by a variety of businesses, these off-the-shelf software solutions won’t be seamlessly integrated into your workflow. You will typically find your team making adjustments and concessions to work them into your processes, sacrificing efficiency. In contrast, custom software is created specifically for a unique client, application, or circumstance. These products are commissioned and then developed to your exact specifications by a team of custom software developers. The result is a product that does exactly what you need to do, exactly how you want it to be done, without any extraneous noise. (more…)

Let’s Talk About Edge Computing – Your network is a complicated series of user APIs and core network processing capabilities. Think of this overall structure as a web of interconnected strings leading back to the central data hub. Edge computing refers to the processes that take place farther away from your centralized network, literally at the edge of your web. We will discuss this in (more…)

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…)

Avoid DBA Burnout: 5 Steps for Management

By | Blog | No Comments
As the importance of database administrators – DBAs – continue to grow, along with a strong economy that offers an abundance of DBA job openings, many companies are concerned about the threat of DBA turnover. Your DBA is responsible for the performance, integrity, and most importantly, the security of your database every day, including nights, weekends, and holidays. Any down time, and your company can suffer lost revenue, or even worse, a significant data breach.

More and more companies are making it a priority to keep their DBAs happy to avoid burnout and thereby minimizing the chance they will proactively seek out a new opportunity. Following are some practical ways to keep your DBA engaged at your company to reduce the risk of turnover. 5 Steps to Prevent Burning Out Your (more…)
