Worst-Kept Secrets


Okay, I'll admit it. Three years ago I recall sitting in this chair and feeling a little bored with the same old topics at the data grindstone.

I LOVE these changes. It is great to see the technology providing options that mean less massive planning, data modelling (except for pure business clarity) and less overall ongoing management from a technical side. The technology should fit the business goals and not be unnecessarily hefty, complex, cumbersome or even all-inclusive. The old chants around extensibility, flexibility and futrue-proofing often just hid a desperate lack of business clarity around purpose, goals and exact expected value. The less the technology is cumbersome, the more the focus can be on real solution value optimization! Plus, all these new options give the solution architects more flexibility in a real way to provide tight, efficient, effective solutions for the right price (based on expected value and the exact solution requirements). Yay!
