We’re on the cusp of exciting times for database development and administration; data storage is set to explode in volume over the next 5 years by as much as 500%. Companies are struggling to manage traditional relational databases and several forms of Big Data, including dark, binary, and streaming data. New theories of development, administration, and data management have matured, but what impact do they have on DBA’s? What are the concepts and skills needed for future career growth? In the (paraphrased) words of Dr. Seuss:
“Oh, the places you’ll go!
You have brains in your head
And SQL Skills to boot
You’ll soar to great heights
On the Data Platform, too”
Join IDERA and Stuart R. Ainsworth as we explore how DevOps and the Cloud Paradigm have developed to address modern software delivery challenges. We’ll also examine how the Microsoft Data Platform provides a framework for career enhancement for SQL Server professionals.
