Instaclustr’s recent acquisition of credativ is a welcome development for any enterprise looking to join the PostgreSQL momentum – and particularly so for those who want to pair the relational database with other powerful open source data technologies. As a company, Instaclustr focuses on providing pure open source data-layer technologies such as Apache Cassandra and Apache Kafka that are optimised for performance, cost and security, and free from any license fees or lock-in associated with proprietary or “open core” solutions. It’s open source the way open source should be.
There are several steps to building an enterprise software development infrastructure. Leading firms need an advanced infrastructure to manage development methodologies, active projects, and necessary resources such as container images. Using these infrastructure, enterprises boost tech workplace productivity, reduce costs, and provide opportunities to differentiate from the competition. This way, businesses increase resource usage efficiency, accelerate software releases, and provide continuous post-release support. As an enterprise software developer, you should embrace lightweight, open source software with minimal dependencies and strong encryption to build your infrastructure.
While self-service data analytics requires the right technologies, promoting the use of data throughout an organization demands strong data literacy and non-intrusive governance, as well. During our webinar, How to Scale Self-Service Analytics for Smarter Decision-Making, we spoke with John Ackerman, VP of Data and Analytics at Affinity Federal Credit Union about their success with adopting a modern data architecture and facilitating data empowerment.
Why is this such huge news? To date, there has never been a great, live query experience on Power BI for Snowflake, BigQuery, RedShift, Databricks and even Azure Synapse SQL. Historically, Power BI has only supported “DirectQuery” access for cloud data sources. “Live Query” provided by AtScale’s DAX connector will deliver extreme performance benefits for these applications. Coupled with the AtScale semantic layer, the combination of analytics-ready data with the ease of use of Power BI is a terrific combination.

Software license compliance audits remain a key part of the strategy for many of the world’s large software vendors. It is a practice that causes conflict between software providers and their customers and has made it necessary for Software Asset Management to grow into a multi-billion-dollar industry. Whilst a handful of vendors are beginning to pull back from full-scale invasive audits, the vast majority continue with this unpopular and relationship damaging practice.
COVID-19 shook the world in a swift blow. People realized how it might take only a tiny virus to change everything in the blink of an eye. Business models collapsed within weeks after this virus spread across the globe. The one thing that the year 2020 taught all of us is to be prepared for unforeseen events. While some of the industries thrived, small enterprises jiggled badly last year as many of the merchants didn’t take technology seriously. To get back up in the market, they must rely on enterprise technology trends that are going to revolutionize the economic world.
Today, even recruiters are using open-source code platforms to find prospective employers. They are not merely looking for the best coders – instead, they want to find the right attitude. Your willingness to work in a team, ability to accept constructive criticism, and dedication to your duties are as important to an organization as your coding skills.
IT support plays a huge part in making sure modern businesses stay functioning and continue their day to day roles. Anytime a system goes down or there is a technical problem involving a computer, network, or server it is the job of IT or tech support to fix this as soon as possible to avoid any financial loss or any damage to files and data. What areas do IT support cover in these challenging times and what is the technology that will be shaping how these services will continue?
Rapidly developing technology is a defining catalyst for change across all industries, and job recruitment is no different. Big tech has wholly upended the hiring process as we know it in the last ten years. If you consider that people used to hand out resumes in person and big corporations put job ads in newspapers, the impact technology has had on hiring is impressive.
In this interview, Alex Rybak, Director of Product Management at Revenera, evaluates issues related to the rapid growth of open source software usage and reflects on how to tap into its strategic advantages safely.
Times of great crisis tend to be accompanied by times of great innovation – and 2020 has been quite a crisis. We’ve all found out new things about ourselves and the world around us during the past year. Many of us now know that we don’t need to go into the office to get our jobs done. Some of us might never go back into the office again because of that revelation. We’ve also found out that we don’t need some of the things that we used to rely on, many meetings really could just be emails, and technology is even more essential than we already thought it was. In short, it’s been a good year for the world of information technology.

As online commerce has exploded in the last decade through micro-transactions, single purchases, and subscription plans, the need to monitor revenue-related metrics is greater than ever. While this isn’t a groundbreaking assertion and many companies agree on the importance of revenue monitoring, the challenge is that revenue streams are highly complex, fragmented, and dynamic, which makes them notoriously difficult to monitor.
It’s hard to overemphasize the importance of search engine optimization. SEO gets you near the top of search engine results pages and discovered by eager customers. While the fact of customers conducting online searches is hardly recent news, this kind of interaction is not going anywhere any time soon. Internet Live Stats reports that the volume of Google searches is growing by nearly 10% every year.
The Bid evaluation is a process that takes places after a bid proposal is submitted by the supplier in response to a bid and the bid date has ended. Once the bid responses are received by the organization, bids are evaluated by a group of panelists to examine and determine the best offer in the effort to acquire goods and services for the organization. These panelists may interview the selected finalist(s) and conclude if necessary, in determining the most economically advantageous procurement bidding.
Technological progress has made it possible to perform teraflops of calculations both on personal computers and on most modern mobile devices.

Remember waiting in line at the bank? Banking customers are doing a lot less of that in the digital era, which has revolutionized the way financial services function. Live tellers and bankers have been replaced by online transactions and digital currency. Insurance, mortgages, investments, and more are also mainly handled online. Waiting is no longer an option for today’s financial services customers, who now expect instant and accurate transactions conducted on a website or mobile app. This has given rise to a new technological discipline called digital experience monitoring (DEM).

When it comes to mapping out the DNA of your code, there is a lot that goes into it, including the testing phase. You want to be able to spot all possible issues and anomalies, and also find the root cause and make sure that gets to the right person. You never want code that’s poor quality to be moved to production, and with that in mind, it’s important to understand all aspects of testing and quality control.
