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.

If you're looking for a quick and easy way to leverage ana­lytics focused on a specific topic, look no further. During his BLUEPRINT 4D session, Patrick Wheeler, product management, Oracle Database, showed how to build a cloud data mart in just 20 minutes. So, what is a data mart? A data mart is a sim­ple form of data warehouse focused on a single subject or line of business. With a data mart, teams can access data and gain insights faster because they don't have to spend time searching within a more complex data warehouse or manually aggregat­ing data from different sources.

In a Continuous Deployment/Continuous Integration (CD/CI) world, most commentary dances around refer­ences to database changes as being a bottleneck, hard, awkward, or even painful. The reasoning supporting this perspective of suffering seems to arise from a desire for all changes to be fairly isolated matters. After all, a new function within an API, driving a new behavior on a screen, can just slip in, start executing, and life continues.

Things break and the DBA must be prepared for situations where a failure impacts the availability, integrity, or usability of a database. Reacting to failures and service disruptions is a key component of the DBA's job. This means ensuring that appropriate backups are taken for all your critical database objects. Assuming backups exist, when an inevitable database recovery is required, the next decision is how to get the data you need back as quickly as possible. But there are several different types and methods of performing recovery.

PostgreSQL arguably has been somewhat overlooked by database commentators. PostgreSQL doesn't have the mas­sive marketing machine of Oracle or Microsoft, and it lacks the "new kid on the block" appeal of MongoDB or CockroachDB. However, PostgreSQL continues to increase in importance in terms of deployments and mindshare. This year, PostgreSQL overtook MongoDB as the "most loved" and "most wanted" database platform. Developer enthusiasm is probably the strongest leading indicator of future deployments since developers, more than anyone else, get to decide what tech­nologies are used in an application.

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.

As a result, entire businesses and industries have been built solely on having access to unique and useful data.

Kubernetes (K8s) gives us an elegant approach to scaling stateless workloads. By itself, scaling stateless workloads will run into bottlenecks if the underlying database doesn't have a corresponding approach to scaling its workload. As an Amazon Web Services (AWS) managed service, Amazon Aurora Serverless v2 mirrors K8s by providing a similarly fluid ability to scale the database workload. This article describes how you can bridge these two worlds to get the best of each world by managing Amazon Aurora as an external AWS managed resource directly from K8s.

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.
