Data scientist, according to Glassdoor, will be the number one job in America in 2016, with over 1,700 job openings and a median base salary of $116,840. This is consistent with Indeed.com, whose 2015 first quarter data saw the number of job postings for data scientist grow 57% as compared to the analogous quarter of the previous year. It’s no surprise then, as we’ve mentioned before, that Data Scientist has been deemed the “sexiest job of the 21st century.” But the term is ambiguous at best. Asking ten different employers how they see the role of data scientist may yield ten different responses.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plans are not new concepts. They’ve been around for decades. As their longevity might suggest, they remain extremely relevant today. In fact, having an operative BCDR plan is more pertinent than ever in the cloud-computing era. For a brief review, a business continuity plan is the tailored plan a business creates in order to continue its normal operations should a problem arise. The impending calamities that must be accounted for can be anything from natural disasters to cyber attacks to theft to sabotage.

NoSQL WILL BE COMPLEMENTED BY SQL
Finally, we expect to see NoSQL use SQL as its dominant query language. The rise of the aforementioned trends of Big Data, IoT, and cloud computing, has caused NoSQL databases, such as MarkLogic and MongoDB, to gain popularity in many fast-moving technology sectors.
These technologies aren’t all good either, though. Remember Uncle Ben’s famous advice to Peter Parker, “with great power, comes great responsibility.” With greater dependence on the Internet of Things and subsequent utilization of cloud-based applications, cybersecurity is necessarily on the forefront of many business’ minds (and if it’s not, it should be!).
Here at Apoorva we understand the importance of staying current in the ever-changing world of Information Technology and Data Management. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of relevant trends moving into 2016 and beyond.
At Apoorva, our SQL Server DBAs are trained to do the following five tasks during their first few days of joining a client. These five items are essentials for any SQL Server (or Oracle, or MySQL) DBAs. They protect our clients, they protect our jobs, and they earn client’s trust.
