Geek Sync | Automating Database Administration Is No Longer Optional

Data management continues to rise in importance as organizations amass and use more data every year. Combining this avalanche of data with more data platforms and database management system types and offerings adds to the complexity of ensuring optimal database systems and applications. At the same time, organizations are not adding more DBAs and data management professionals to their staff. And then add in the changing dynamics and speed of application development and the challenge increases.

Register for our Geek Sync, Automating Database Administration Is No Longer Optional, on Wednesday, January 13, at 11 AM CT, with host Craig Mullins.

These clear industry trends equate to a demanding, complex environment for managing and administering database systems. Yet DBAs are still required to monitor, optimize, tune, backup, recover, change structures, and move data both on premises and to the cloud. To be successful requires intelligent automation of DBA tasks and procedures.

This presentation will discuss these trends and provide an overview of the important tasks that DBAs need to automate to succeed in today’s digital enterprise.

He has been named by IBM as a Gold Consultant and he writes the monthly DBA Corner column for Database Trends & Applications magazine.
