Using Tech to Enable Next-Gen Database Professionals
Digital transformation has reshaped the way businesses interact with their customers. While this has delivered tremendous value to their businesses, it has also introduced a new set of technology initiatives – such as Hybrid Cloud and standardization of tools and processes across the enterprise – that has added a heightened level of complexity to many IT roles.
Coupled with a global shortage of qualified people who can fill key tech positions, these new initiatives must be met with innovative programs that plug skills shortages and gaps. Ironically, the use of technology itself may be the best option for enterprises that are looking to close skills gaps and advance their digital transformation goals. This is especially true in complex environments, such as Db2 database management and development for mainframe data centers.
In this keynote, Chris, Venkat, and David will explore two ways in which technology can help database staff achieve their goals:
- Open Up and Shift Left. Use open tooling and automate the integration of operations into the development process to modernize software delivery without disrupting existing operations.
- Embrace Complexity. Use AI and machine learning to better understand a datacenter’s various entities and their relationships and automate the detection, diagnosis, and evaluation of problems.
