As one of the fundamental building blocks of the metaverse, IoT digital twins have moved beyond the realms of simulation to facilitate an understanding of real-world problems. Take the European Union's "Destination Earth" initiative. This is drawing on a host of environmental, socioeconomic, and satellite data to develop digital "twins" of the planet in an effort to combat climate change, but the benefits do not stop there, particularly in the B2B world. For risk-averse companies in asset-intensive industries, digital twin technology is set to bring unparalleled value to mission-critical maintenance tasks and enable the delivery of more immersive product experiences to the end customer.

British mathematician Clive Humby famously said in 2006 that "Data is the new oil." In the 16 years since, companies of all sizes have drilled for and stored more and more data about their customers and business operations to drive performance and growth to reach their goals. In conjunction with the increased use of the consumer internet, data creation has exploded in recent years—considering the majority of the world's data collected over the course of human history has occurred in just the last two years alone. As a result, entire businesses and industries have been built solely on having access to unique and useful data.

Every organization, from the smallest nonprofit entities to the trillion-dollar behemoths dominating the historic landscape south of San Francisco, recognizes that tomorrow is not guar­anteed. In the early days of this decade, the world's governments put the world economy into existential peril as they attempted to "lock down" public interaction, resulting in the world's econo­mies shutting down. Even when the most destructive restrictions were loosened, there was a considerable amount of less onerous restrictions which lingered on for many months.

The information imbalance between purveyors of AI-enabled systems and their oft unwitting subjects is profound. So much so that leading AI researchers point to this chasm as a critical ethics issue in and of itself. This is due largely to the fact that public perceptions or, more accurately, misperceptions can enable (however unintentionally) the deployment of insidiously invasive or unsound AI applications.

Is the mainframe still necessary? Well, let's put it this way: If all the world's mainframes shut down, we'd be facing a zombie apocalypse. That's a bit hyperbolic but the underlying point stands: Without mainframes, banks couldn't process financial transactions at ATMs or online, retailers' ecommerce platforms would go dark, and healthcare systems would be unable to access patient records or other vital information. Mainframes are still a vital part of the modern enterprise. If they no longer existed, businesses would lose access to years of records and entire computing systems would crash.

Data observability is a relatively new discipline in the fields of data engineering and data management. While many are familiar with the longstanding concepts of observability and monitoring in enterprise IT networks and infrastructure, data observability has only really come into the spotlight in the last two years. However, it has managed to turn a lot of heads in that short time.

In previous columns, we've noted that the SQL language is in the ascendant. New SQL native databases such as CockroachDB and Yugabyte are showing robust adoption, while non-relational (NoSQL) databases increasingly provide SQL interfaces to their data. In light of this increasing trend, it's no surprise to see the introduction of a new SQL capability within the latest release of MongoDB—the Atlas SQL framework.

In building a logical data model, some entities are considered strong, other entities are considered weak. Strong entities are the most foundational elements within a nascent Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) and comprise the list of objects that would likely come to mind first. Strong entities are independent in that they exist all on their own and can be created without having to meet any pre-conditions.

Establishing agreed upon services levels for database applications is of the utmost importance for assuring that performance meets required criteria. Without pre-determined, negotiated service level agreements in place, database and application performance can become a never-ending game of blind man's bluff, where DBAs blindly and constantly seek an unspoken goal. Instead, active service level management should be the standard.

Kubernetes has fundamentally changed the way organizations manage and deploy software. At its core, Kubernetes provides a unified API for infrastructure that abstracts differences between cloud providers and their underlying infrastructure so that Kubernetes users can focus on defining their application workloads. By popularizing declarative management of resources, Kubernetes has transformed the IT landscape, particularly through "GitOps" workflows. Kubernetes is also extensible, enabling users to build their own APIs through custom resource definitions and controllers.

As machine learning (ML) becomes the norm of the data industry, it's clear that its potential is limited within current data structures. Tabular data strategies have decreased in efficiency, as they lack the ability to acknowledge relationships interconnecting various data points. Data models create complexities as they become scaled by data scientists, constructed by different code languages for different data pipelines, yielding low productivity and high development times. Leaders in ML and data consumption look towards improving data science strategies to widely increase data value and data model efficiency.

Working with databases causes friction. On one side, nontechnical managers want data pros to skip the jargon and clearly describe their needs. On the other side, data pros wish their managers had a deeper understanding of the tech involved. Nontechnical managers may think they need to understand the technology better and get into the weeds to close this inherent trust gap. But this isn't the case—managers are busy tracking resource allocations, Gantt charts, project plans, and punch lists. They must also fill open slots, upskill employees, and keep people from falling prey to the Great Resignation.

The challenge with modern supply chains is one of multiple pressures hitting all at once. These include pandemic-induced disruptions, cyber attacks targeting supply chains and the effect that financial and trade sanctions are having on Russia for its war in Ukraine. To be more resilient, many companies have opened the spigot on enterprise investment and technology innovation for supply chain modernization. But these efforts must be well-coordinated to be effective.
