Review of eBook: A ZOMBIE’S SURVIVAL GUIDE IN A CHANGING DATABASE WORLD or Is the database administrator dead? Or alive and preparing for the future?

Here’s some of the highlights from the eBook.

Trend: Yesterday’s DBA is today’s DevOps engineer

  • DevOps worries about stability and performance issues, so nothing breaks.
  • Developers want to add the next greatest thing to production as fast as possible.
  • Top 2 DBA challenges to adding database changes to the DevOps process: 43% Regression testing 37% Sync app and database changes.

Trend: The rise of multi-platform environments

  • Oracle and SQL Server are still at the top for online transaction processing (OLTP), ERP, CRM, data warehousing and online ratings.
  • MySQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra are leading storage for web-based applications.
  • Cosmos DB from Microsoft is an option for distributed, multi-model databases covering multiple regions.
  • Top uses of multiple database platforms? 72% Support multiple apps 42% Support multi workloads

Trend: The cloud and Database-as-a-Service (DAAS): Your ticket to influence

  • Two areas that DBAs can exert a lot of influence is making cloud decisions and initiating cloud projects.

My fellow DBA colleagues here’s my takeaways for you ESPECIALLY for Database as a service:

  • Don’t fight the trend or your career will stall.
  • The trend can be your friend for new and exciting career opportunities.

I give the article A ZOMBIE’S SURVIVAL GUIDE IN A CHANGING DATABASE WORLD a thumb’s up!

I hope the database administrator is NOT dead but alive and preparing for the future. Right?
