Multiple Databases, Multiple Headaches?
In the past, database management was relatively straightforward. Using SQL databases, businesses needed only one skillset to manage their database. Data organization was quite painless as organizations needed only to analyze information from a single type of source. Sure, it was relatively expensive to have SQL servers on-premise, but it was a small price to pay to have your data safe and sound in a single, accessible location.
But time moved on, as it inevitably does, and along came cloud-based applications. Company processes and data starting moving to this miraculous thing called “the cloud” where the costs of hardware infrastructure were virtually non-existent.
As a result, businesses today are faced with something of a dilemma. Most businesses still have processes that use SQL databases to store legacy data and older software. At the same time, business have also adopted cloud-based solutions for many aspects of business. The result? Lots of data is divided into SQL and cloud-based databases.
And for businesses, this is a problem.
Many existing on-premise solutions require an entirely new skillset to analyze and qualify data. This skills gap may even discourage businesses from adopting cost-saving cloud applications out of fear of losing access and control of the data that would be channeled through the cloud. After all, they already have a specialist who learned SQL to manage on-premise databases. Do they really have the means to hire someone to manage cloud databases, too?
