How to Stay Relevant

I keep hearing people express concerns about their jobs and discussing what they think they should be doing to ensure that they remain valuable and employable. These questions are not new, by the way. COBOL programmers were asking the same questions a very long time ago. Why are they asked with so much more frequency now? It’s complicated. But I believe it’s the result of uncertainty caused by the massive amount of change going on in the IT world. The trend toward cloud computing is definitely high on the list of disruptive changes. But there’s also a strong push to automate all sorts of operational tasks and, of course, that includes traditional DBA tasks. I’m sure you’ve heard Larry talking about the autonomous database, right? AI, massive increases in data volumes, and the trend toward open source software also contribute to the disruption.

Change is inevitable, and the pace is relentless. But despite all that — and at the risk of ruining the punch line of the presentation — I don’t believe there will ever be a shortage of opportunities for smart, industrious people, as long as they are willing to evolve their skills. So, let’s discuss where the industry is headed, where we should be focusing our energy, and How to Stay Relevant.

Kerry Osborne is an Oracle performance specialist. A consultant for most of his career, he’s been fortunate enough to spend time doing a combination of technical and business stuff. Kelly started an Oracle-focused consulting company called Database Consultants in the late 80s (later renamed ThinkSpark), which he eventually sold. In 2004, he co-founded another Oracle-focused firm, Enkitec, which was acquired by Accenture in 2014.
