Adopting RAD in the Enterprise: The 14 Biggest Misconceptions
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Rapid Application Development (RAD) is a way of developing computer software applications with less effort than the traditional means.

RAD tools focus on providing code generation and automated testing capabilities with the use of convention over configuration to provide a streamlined workflow to create applications.

Even with the most advanced and easiest to use RAD tools, there are times which the traditional enterprise and the business software development vendors which are having their own implementations …

Cloud, SaaS and The Consumerization of IT
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I wrote a guest column for GigaOm on how open source software, cloud and software as a service are helping to bring about the consumerization of IT: namely bringing simplicity where complexity reigned.  I cited some examples including New Relic, Box.net and Apple.

Open source has gone a long way toward putting power back in the hands of developers, who can download, install and deploy software without having to go through any kind of convoluted sales or budget …

How Real is the Data Deluge?
+1 Vote Up -1Vote Down

It seems obvious that given the decreasing cost of storage and computation, there's going to be a significant increase in the volume of data that organizations accumulate over the next 10 years.  But the type of data being accumulated may be different from the areas where traditional DBMSs dominated.  It's not just about transactions; it's search patterns, on-line behavior, click-thru data, events fired off by smartphones, messages over Twitter & Facebook, log data of various kinds.

If an organization can figure out a better way identify …

Following High Performance MySQL’s hash index discussion
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Mixing up some MySQL and SQL Server hacking activities can be fun. I’ve also noticed that when you work with different database platforms, it can bring additional clarity to certain concepts and techniques. One reason for that, I think, is that different terminologies and ways of explanations are used for people practicing on different platforms, and that tends to re-enforce or otherwise bring clarity to things that you may not have a good grasp to begin with.

Anyway, I am following Baron …

Generic indices in GenieDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’re gearing up to release v0.5 of GenieDB right now, and the biggest new feature in v0.5 is the generic indexing framework.

Originally, GenieDB provided indices on fields of records. As we do not mandate a per-table schema, each record in a table could have totally different fields; so when an index is created on the field “foo” of the table “bar”, we index any record in “bar” that has a “foo” field under that value in the index. If the record did not have a “foo” field, then it doesn’t appear in the index at all (whereas records with a NULL value for “foo” are indexed under NULL, of course).

However, …

Testing Windows IO with SQLIO and SysBench
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

To benchmark IO on Linux and MySQL transaction processing, SysBench is a popular choice that can do both. After poking around at the source code, it seems PostgreSQL and Oracle are also included for transaction processing testing if you have the proper header files, but I didn’t test those.

To benchmark IO on Windows and SQL Server transaction processing, Microsoft provides two tools, SQLIO and SQLIOSim. SQLIO is a misnomer in that it really doesn’t have much to do with SQL Server. It is a general purpose disk IO benchmark tool.

So today I was playing with SysBench and noticed that I can compile and build it on Windows as well. I …

Having fun with MySQL and Python: converting MySQL character set to utf8
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Lately I worked quite a bit with Python and Linux, writing monitoring and automation utilities. I am in a transition period, so I thought I ought to write some Python stuff interfacing with MySQL for fun, and start positioning myself for expanded career horizon, I hope.

To get started, I thought it would be fun to rewrite a Perl utility I wrote before with Python. That script converts MySQL character sets to utf8, a very common task for wikis and blogs during an upgrade. This time, I did everything …

I'm the boards of two companies (Pentaho, Revolution Analytics) that are starting to see a lot of customer traction around Big Data. More and more companies in media, pharma, retail and finance are doing advanced analysis, reporting, graphing, etc with massive data sets.
