Data is the most important IT asset for any organization. Yet, a new world of cloud-based application platforms has brought significant changes to both infrastructure (iDBA) and applicative (aDBA) DBA.
This presentation looks at how the roles of DBAs have changed, adapting to the modern cloud environment from the limited on-premises systems of the past.
Covering recent trends in the world of IT, such as open source databases, the impact of the on-demand nature of the cloud, as well as hassle-free database scaling solutions, we explore just what this new environment has in store for DBAs in the current IT market. Additionally, we delve into the game-changing nature of the NoSQL and the DevOps movement that has construed a number of misconceptions around the need for DBAs, implying that the future role of database experts is negligible.
To learn about what the future holds for DBAs, take a look at the presentation.
