News Flashes

Dell Boomi is releasing an enhanced version of its integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) to help organizations rapidly and cost-effectively integrate data across applications in hybrid IT environments. The latest release enables Boomi customers to build a connected business at scale through new features to increase user productivity, speed up implementation, and provide unparalleled control of integrations.

In what has become a data-driven world, your organization's data is valuable. It has become the "keys to the kingdom," so to speak. Very few companies today could function without data, especially good data. However, I would suggest that more important than data, is information. Data provides the building blocks, but information is really the consumable outcome that can be used as a competitive edge.

There are three big challenges facing today's DBAs—a shift to an application-centric focus, the need to support multiple database platforms, and expanding responsibilities for managing database performance in the cloud as well as on premises.


Think About It

By now it's well documented that employees will take IT tasks into their own hands when IT cannot give them the support they need, and when they need it. The phenomenon is ubiquitous and persistent, even to the point that it's been dubbed "shadow IT." Gartner recently noted that by 2020, a third of successful attacks experienced by enterprises will be on their shadow IT resources.
