Webcast: Differences and Similarities of Working With and Supporting Multiple Database Platforms
In the ever-changing world of technology, we sometimes inherit environments with multiple database platforms and must continue to manage them. This can result in many challenges – from deploying and maintaining code for different backends, to development challenges for teams unfamiliar with other technologies, to understanding the unique best practices for these other environments. As the role of database professionals change, it is important to stay current and extend skill sets.
In this webcast we will take a look at how to approach some of these challenges and look at some of the similarities and differences when working with various database platforms like SQL Server, MongoDB, Azure SQL, etc.
Join us for this free webcast to get insights for working on multiple database platforms.
Working with multiple different database platforms presents several challenges, including:
* Limited diagnostic capabilities: With different platforms, DBAs may have fewer tools for resolving problems and less control over their databases, leading to increased frustration.
* Skill set requirements: A lack of skill sets can slow assimilating a new database platform, costing companies time and money.
* Application-centric focus: DBAs face the challenge of shifting to an application-centric focus while managing multiple database platforms.
* Manage performance in the cloud and on-premises: Database administrators manage database performance on both cloud and on-premises platforms, adding to the complexity of their tasks.
* Efficient management of multiple databases: Modern data-driven organizations often need to manage multiple databases due to complex infrastructures and phased digital transformation efforts.
