4851 0

With hundreds of thousands of companies surging into the cloud and aspiring to be a data-driven business, cloud databases are becoming the central nervous system for the digital economy. Award-winning journalist and world-class content leader John Foley—who’s also a Cloud Wars contributing editor—has created the Cloud Database Report to help business leaders and the tech industry stay up to date on this red-hot strategic technology.

Episode 1

The Big Themes:

  • Traditional on-premises databases to cloud databases: Gartner predicts that 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to the cloud by the end of next year.
  • The terabyte transition: Go back 20 years ago and that was big data. Now it’s petabytes, exabytes, zettabytes, and yottabytes.
  • Civil War times: Business intelligence has been using this since 1865. It’s still something that many businesses have not really mastered.
  • Fast and furious: The Cloud Database Report can help everyone get a better sense of what’s happening across the market.

The Big Quote: “I’ve been a part of the market for a long time, and honestly I’ve never seen the pace of innovation, the pace of change that we’re seeing right now.”
