Life is always messy. The question is how to deal with it.
Some people like to complain: “Network guys didn’t do this, security guys messed up that, and those hardware guys, just no words!” This article is about a project that got implemented with no surprises, smooth from the beginning to the end.
You’re #CuriousAboutData, so read on!
Griping is fine, I guess, if you’re into that type of stuff, but at BitWise we don’t like the blame game. We specialize in solutions.
Now, I know the word “solution” can mean different things for different people, so let me define it quickly:
Solution: something that works without any additional need for modification.
For example, if we’re going to give you an ETL solution it’s not going to be just a software that “could” run. At BitWise, we’re going to make sure that you have the right servers, set them up if necessary, schedule the jobs, set up monitoring, plug it into your monitoring system if you have one, the whole nine yards. That’s not easy. It often requires us to wear many hats.
Let’s say a data transfer isn’t working any more. Everyone swears that nothing changed. No problem, we put on our Network Engineer hat and start troubleshooting. No ping, route trace stops at the firewall. Hmm, can we check the firewall logs? Ah, what do you know there’s our request. When was this firewall rule changed? Last week, the same day that the problem began? I see …
Or, let’s say you need to set up a database server with ldap authentication, but you don’t have a test environment to set it up. We got your back, we’ll set up an LDAP server, linux authentication using it, test server, client — no additional need for modification.
Of course, you don’t have to use all these services. We’re perfectly happy to stay within our database-related responsibilities, but when the situation requires it, BitWise is always ready to step up to the plate. We want to see you use our solutions and get actual value out of it!
We like people, so feel free to call or write. Humans only.
