Internet of Things

The phenomenon of connected machines is sometimes called the Internet of Things, the Internet of Anything, the Internet of Everything, or M2M (machine to machine). But no matter what the name, the growth of technology related to objects, which never before were network- and computer-enabled, is projected to have far-reaching technological, societal, and economic impact.

The strongest examples of the impact of the Internet of Things are in the industrial sector. Embedded software, sensors, and network connectivity promises to improve the way factories, data centers, oil wells, and cities, airplanes, cars, and even homes are maintained because data can be collected continuously with alerts issues proactively to prevent failures and outages.

According to Cisco's Internet Business Solutions Group, 50 billion devices will be connected by 2020, up from 2010's 12.5 billion. By 2020, data production will be 44 times greater than it was in 2009, and by 2020, more than one-third of the data produced will live in or pass through the cloud, according to Computer Sciences Corp.

Data is increasingly appreciated by companies as their most valuable asset. But the problem is that this view is not just held by organizations themselves, there are others - including hackers and - who see it that way as well. IT and data managers can play a pivotal role in enterprise security because they are the insiders with trusted status and they are aware of where the data is stored and how best to reduce or eliminate threats. Newer security technology can also relieve many of the manual burdens associated with database monitoring.

For fast-paced, turn-on-a-dime digital enterprises, with demands for 24-by-7 uptime, no activity is more vital than keeping database systems up and running. Today, database availability is no longer just a critical IT issue; it is a critical business issue. To be prepared in the event of system failures, infrastructure owners and DBAs have developed strategies to increase resiliency and assure availability of data.

Database development is growing more challenging all the time. Releases are expected to come out faster than ever, and teams are more spread out across, global geographies, time zones, and skill levels. Software deployment, meanwhile needs to be spread across cloud and onsite, and accessible through more devices than ever. What's needed is an integrated end-to-end environment with multi-platform support that helps simplify development and provides automation to achieve repeatable processes and avoid potential risks that can translate into unanticipated delays.

It's a lot to think about, and that is why strong database administration solutions are highly valued.
