Birthday presents as a kid were the best. There stood a pile of perfectly wrapped boxes with cool stuff inside, and you couldn’t wait to dig in and start playing â€• and eat tons of cake.
For DBAs, the introduction of new technologies is akin to the excitement associated with the undiscovered mystery of those shiny, new presents. But are those new toys really getting used?
A new report from Quest and Unisphere Research provides real insights from database administrators. See how your experiences compare when you download your complimentary copy of the report.
To better understand real use of new technologies, we asked 300 DBAs about their “old toys” and how they’re incorporating the new ones. Here’s what we found:
What seems to be clear is that DBAs have a definite interest in exploring new technology, but it may be advancing at a rate that exceeds their appropriate learning curve and need. Do these findings reflect your experience? Which database brands are you using in your organization?

Now that we know which platforms are being used (and which ones are not), our next post will explore which types of data DBAs like you are managing these days. The answers may surprise you!
