Keynote Session

IT Wars - DBA Versus Developer

For decades developers and DBAs have battled over who controls the world. With each new development paradigm the battle flares again as developers push DBAs to adopt and support new data structures (JSON), new APIs (REST services), new technologies (In-Memory) and new platforms (Cloud). In this session, Gerald takes on the role of lead developer on a project to deploy a RESTful web-based application, while Maria takes on the role of the DBA. Through the use of live demos, they learn to work together to find a solution that will allow them to embrace a more agile development approach, as well as the latest technology trend without exposing the business to painful availability or security vulnerabilities. Can developers and DBAs peacefully coexist? Join us in this session and find out!
