In the recent survey for our annual State of Resilience Report, we discovered the majority of our 1,598 respondents are dealing with serious IT obstacles.

Tired of the Complexities of Traditional ETL Processes?

Jun 10, 2014
  • Data Sharing
You’d be hard pressed to find an organization without a multi-database environment today. Recently we conducted a survey in which 87% of the businesses we talked to said they regularly need to share data between multiple databases in their organization. What's really interesting is, 62% are constantly concerned that their databases are out of sync. Out-of-sync databases are nightmare.

The Birth of a Technology

Nov 07, 2013
  • Data Sharing
One of the interesting facets of being in the technology industry is watching business trends drive technical development. The cycle is always the same: Someone develops a technology for a certain purpose or to meet a specific need, people use it for what it was developed to do, then they start to think up new ways they can use it to meet other unfulfilled needs. The developer takes note of how people are actually using their product or technology and what the “new” need is, and then they make another iteration of the product that is purpose-built to meet the new need.
