IT professional and thought leader, Joey D’Antoni, shares why it’s critical to build a data structure that supports reporting independently of transactional activity to get your business users the information they need while letting your front line business operate as expected.
Companies these days have more data than ever. Even small companies can easily have terabytes of data. Employees need access to proper, reliable, and most importantly correct data in order to translate that raw data into actionable information.
The development of databases is hard and challenging work. While virtualization, and even containers, have made the deployment of multiple database environments faster, the limiter to the process is the time to restoration of backups.
