Changing Lanes: Shifting Roles with Relational and Big Data Platforms

by Apr 10, 2018

As Relational and Big Data Store databases evolve, so do the responsibilities of the people that support them. Whether you are an Analyst dealing with multiple spreadsheets, crafting different ways of transforming or delivering data; a Developer who has to come up with efficient queries by parsing the data, while not extending the memory; or a DBA who has to manage the data by making sure the security, storage, and the efficiency of the database are top notch, sometimes these lanes overlap. You are no longer swimming in your own lane but may be sharing your lane with your co-worker or expanding and extending your lane’s scope. The platform vendors blur these lines further with the differences between structural and nonstructural  data. Whether over the last few years you have seen your lanes change or not, or you have a typical role that stays within the defined lines, you can now manage all of these platform types efficiently with Aqua Data Studio.

No matter what database you are using, the right tool makes your job easier. Aqua Data Studio uses one interface to connect to more than 28 Relational and Big Data platforms, to help manage all the different data representations in a consistent manner. It includes a broad feature set that can improve productivity for Analysts, Developers, and DBAs.

As a typical Analyst you can see your data, export the data, and write reports across multiple databases with one IDE. Today’s Analyst no longer needs to be worried about where the data resides, if it is relational, non-relational, or Big data; it just needs to be able to be easily manipulated.  

As a Developer, Aqua Data Studio includes one IDE that helps you create, import, and export efficient queries and share those queries across different platforms. Whether pulling it out of a Relational database or a Big Data store, you can efficiently view tables and data from multiple databases and graphically generate complex SQL queries.  

Lastly, and not to be forgotten, are the Database Administrators (DBAs), who ultimately are responsible for making sure you can maintain the database performance with the appropriate security. Aqua Data studio allows DBAs to see if the databases are up or down, manage the storage of the database, manage the security of the data, and ultimately make sure that reports created by the Analyst are scheduled to run on time and to be delivered to the appropriate manger.
