Alchemists are best known for their (completely fictional and entirely ridiculous, but that’s besides the point) amazing ability to turn lead into gold. Let’s face it, there’s a lot of lead in the Oracle world. Bugs, angry developers, metrics that can seem to elude human understanding…but I digress. The question is, what can an alchemist do when they are already working with gold in the first place?
Refine it, of course. Turn it into something beautiful.
Today I start working with Delphix, a revolutionary Agile Data Platform that is capable of finally providing mobility and ease of use for your huge — and dare I say it, grossly overbloated — data silos. Now, my reading faithful know I’ve talked about Delphix in the past. Heck, I’ve gushed about Delphix in the past. No, it’s more safe to say I’ve gone absolutely crazy over Delphix in the past. Be that as it may, you’ll have to indulge me once more.
I firmly believe Delphix is gold. Those who have worked personally with me over the last year can attest to that. It’s the first technology I’ve worked with that I can say fulfills the needs of DBAs, the business, project management, developers, and system administrators all in one shot. That alone makes it disruptive. But the way in which it seamlessly integrates into an enterprise ecosystem and delivers immediate results makes it incredible.
Man, that was a good plug. I’m a regular Don Draper, except for the whole boozing and womanizing and smoking and looking great in a fedora thing.
Anyways, I won’t take up more of your precious slacking off time with sales talk. Instead, I’ll tell you that I’m excited at this new opportunity and the company, and I expect that over time I’ll be able to mold, refine, and enrich what I learn with you for your reading pleasure.
