The technology landscape is evolving, rapidly in places. Keeping up with this change is key, but doing so is going to require us to evolve the way we approach keeping up with technology. In this session we will look at what options we have available to us, along with how the role of the DBA/Developer/BI Professional is likely to change. Based on my experience and observation of the industry at large, let me help you understand the choices in front of you.
