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.

Many large modern enterprises are data-aware. They deploy processes to transform raw data into information using a variety of data integration, data management, and business intelligence (BI) tools. However, being data-aware, or even data-driven, does not necessarily mean that they are insights-driven.

DBAs can recover a database, tune SQL, and may even know how to write some PL/SQL when push comes to shove. And, yes, those are all great skills to have. But in 2018, DBAs need more, writes Matt Malcheski in a new IOUG SELECT article. Malcheski goes over the "hot topics," including blockchain, AI, and Internet of Things, and notes that DBAs of the future will need to understand not only the technical aspects of these and the other technologies but also must be able understand and add value to the functional data requirements necessary for all-encompassing solutions. "This is characterized in a data point from Gartner: By 2021, 40% of IT staff will be 'versatilists' holding multiple roles, most of which will be business rather than technology related."

The key to understanding AI's current and future impact is its transformation of business processes. A widespread misconception is that AI systems, including advanced robotics and digital bots, will gradually replace humans in one industry after another. Self-driving vehicles, for example, will one day replace taxi, delivery, and truck drivers. That may be true for certain jobs, but what we've found in our research is that, although AI can be deployed to automate certain functions, the technology's greater power is in complementing and augmenting human capabilities.

An abundance of database types are flourishing so much so that those who tout "polyglot persistence" insist that one size cannot fit all and focus on integrating multiple data stores. However, multi-model databases are also on the rise and may be a better fit than using multiple data stores. Jeff Fried, CTO, BA Insight will discuss the pros and cons of both approaches at Data Summit 2018 during his session titled, "Polyglot Persistence Versus Multi-Model Databases."

It's no secret that data management has changed dramatically in the nearly 10 years since the onslaught of "big data." A decade ago, the relational database management system (RDBMS) ruled the enterprise.  Today, polyglot persistence is the mandate, and innovative NoSQL and NewSQL databases, cloud services, and data processing technologies have arisen alongside stalwart RDBMSs, data warehouses, and traditional on-premise deployments. However, despite the increasingly challenging data environment, experts agree, opportunities for DBAs abound—provided they are willing to continue learning and growing and to step in to fill gaps where they open up.
