I want to wish you a very happy new year! Twenty-seventeen has been an incredible and exciting year for our company, our customers, and ourselves. I had an absolute blast traveling and speaking at a number of different events in 2017, including SQL Nexus, Pure Accelerate, VMworld (USA and EMEA), P21 Connect, PASS Summit, and too many SQL Saturdays and SQL Server User Groups to mention.
We all know that the world continues to change in front of our eyes, especially with the seismic shift from on-prem computing to cloud-based computing, and as it changes, so should we. All of us in the SQL Server community need to start to embrace the cloud, even if our day jobs are not yet ready. As the world shifts to the cloud, our jobs and our roles evolve. Automation, AI, data science, HA/DR – all are critical changes you should re-learn as the database landscape transforms in front of us.
We at Heraflux have set our sights on a new chapter of innovation for 2018, so stay tuned for some exciting announcements over the next few months!
