Permit me to preface this communication with accolades to the TechTarget team for providing this forum. I am certain it will prove invaluable for IT and business professionals.
I would like to poll the members regarding their respective takes of the following database management initiatives targeted for our organization:
We are in a mixed and disparate RDBMS environment housing our core processor and financial-specific systems, as well as our DMS, CRM, Call Center, Contacts, Accounting, and proprietary Data Warehouse (to name a few).
1. What is the recommended set of database administration
tools to manage DB2, Oracle, Sybase, and SQL platforms?
2. What is the best approach to extending/replacing our proprietary data warehouse and reporting solutions to an enterprise-oriented platform-independent business intelligence solution?
3. What are the best practices and required skill set for data integrations and migrations of same?
Any insight regarding the above would be greatly appreciated. At this level of generality, we are seeking a high-level overview or response as to best guide our efforts.
Thanks in advance,
