Di tengah tengah perjalanan saya ke Los Angeles, saya sempat lunch dan berdiskusi selama 2 jam dengan Sean di sebuah restorant di Santa Monica beach.

UKM bisa belajar ini dari perusahaan besar

When it comes to good business strategies, one can learn a lot from the biggest companies out there. These organizations often have large teams that sit down and plan out strategies well in advance, with revision sessions that make sure that every possible has been covered and that the strategy that is being used is the best one for the company. Now, I know what you are thinking. How can small businesses learn, copy, and execute from what Huge organizations are doing? Surely the differences in budgets will prevent that. Well, I argue that that is not the case. Sure, large organizations such as the one’s listed below are well funded and can scale things rather quickly. However, there is a lot that a small business can take away from a large one in terms of strategy, ideas, and even execution– whether it’s a huge non-profit or corporate entity. Large entities indeed have a lot of valuable information to pass onto small businesses – regardless of the lack of resources. Below are three v…

Mengapa monitoring database memerlukan seorang IT Profesional

WHY MONITORING A DATABASE REQUIRES AN IT-PROFESSIONAL
In many enterprises, database systems are the most important server installations of all. Most sector-specific solutions rely on databases and store information directly in the database, rather than in individual files. As such, opportunities to monitor those databases are highly dependent on the database system that is employed: large database systems, specifically Oracle, offer a variety of internal tools in order to monitor the stability, agility, and security of the database. Microsoft also has an impressive résumé in this category and equips its own SQL servers with a variety of sensors in order to measure all aspects of the system's qualities. Smaller systems, such as SAP's "Advantage Database Server" (previously Sybase) offer significantly less functionality in this regard. The lower level of monitoring features does not, however, indicate that the database is less effective in terms of the performance req…

Cloud usage continues to gain momentum across all industries. In a recent FutureScape: Worldwide Cloud 2017 Predictions report, IDC predicted that between 60 percent and 70 percent of all software, services and technology spending will be on the cloud by 2020. With this increase in cloud usage comes a corresponding need for employees with cloud skills. Supply has not kept pace with demand, however. The State of Cloud Readiness Study 2016 found that 53 percent of IT leaders are struggling to acquire the necessary skills to support cloud initiatives within their organizations, while almost half indicate staff training is not a priority.
