Geek Sync | Automating Database Administration Is No Longer Optional

by Jan 21, 2021

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.

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.

Watch this Geek Sync webinar replay with Craig Mullins to learn about these trends and gain an overview of the important tasks that DBAs need to automate to succeed in today’s digital enterprise.

The speaker, Craig S. Mullins, is president and principal consultant of Mullins Consulting, Inc. where he focuses on data management strategy and consulting. He has been named by IBM as a Gold Consultant and he writes the monthly DBA Corner column for Database Trends & Applications magazine.
