Managing Fast-Changing Data


Are you in charge of managing data in an ever-expanding environment that's always in flux? You're not alone.

Data managers and DBAs in organizations of every size often struggle with managing the continuous ebb and flow of data that comes with acquisitions, growing customer data, new systems coming online, and other factors common to any thriving business.

Kevin Kline and John Welch presented how to manage constantly changing data to ensure optimal performance and consistent delivery of accurate business-critical data during this session in October 2018. They provided a brief overview of important data management concepts, such as master data management and data stewardship, and how those concepts differ from typical database administration.

What they covered:

  • How to address the most common challenges in managing fast-changing data estates, including analyzing database changes, automating mundane tasks, and proactively optimizing performance
  • How to set routine practices for watching relevant conditions on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis to ensure your database systems run smoothly
  • How to actively manage changes in your data estate by analyzing database differences, synchronizing data and schemas, and analyzing dependencies and connections between tables, users, functions, and security policies
  • How to proactively monitor database performance and ensure adequate resources for peak workloads
