Why SYS-ED for Database Training|
SYS-ED has provided consultancy services and taught on each successive generation of database; starting with hierarchical databases on mainframe systems, followed by relational and client/server up through web-enabled databases utilized in conjunction with IBM MQ middleware in hybrid operating environments. We aggregate and research mobile database management software, web servers, and the middleware stack. Our staff prototypes and develops code for use in SYS-ED websites and mobile web applications and teaching database software. Apache Hadoop software has been installed and tested in conjunction with reviewing white papers and evaluating benchmarks.
Since 1980, SYS-ED has been providing instructor-led database courses and training services for Fortune 1000 companies, government municipalities, software companies, and healthcare providers. When it comes to scalable and enterprise database training SYS-EDís credentials in terms of consultancy experience and advanced degrees in many situations will be superior to that of the employees from the source software companies. Senior staff members have first hand knowledge of installations where superb logical and physical database design and coding still has IMS outperforming DB2.
Few software or consulting organizations have the skilled personnel or been doing scalable database training longer or better than SYS-ED - enterprise: IMS, DB2, Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, and MySQL, legacy mainframe database: IDMS and ADABAS, client/server workstation Xbase, Delphi, MS Access, and MS Visual FoxPro.OSS: Open Source Software
The presence of free and low cost open source software is inevitable within an organizational enterpriseís information technology portfolio. OSS assets can affect information technology initiatives in positive and negative ways. The major benefits are driven by a confluence of cost optimization, flexibility, innovation, and security. The principal risks are unmanaged software assets that can introduce technical and intellectual property complexity.
SYS-ED teaches and prototypes the open source database software and APIs: Application Programming Interfaces in commercial and hybrid software environments. Guidelines are provided for integration and scalability with web servers and leading commercial databases.
An important component in the delivery of our database training was the development of courseware, training aids, industry- and client-specific exercises, and sample programs. SYS-ED courseware incorporates industry standard content and consultancy derived techniques for database design, data modeling, coding, debugging, performance design, and optimization techniques. Members of our teaching staff have authored database textbooks:
The collective efforts of our subject matter experts, who average 30+ years experience in information technology, are managed by editors, who have multidisciplinary expertise in information technology, textbook authoring, and degrees in management and business administration. The classic principles of adult learning are applied to content, interpreting, and translating subject matter into performance objectives, narrative descriptions, and diagrams which explain the design, program logic and underlying architecture. The courseware has been designed to utilize a variety of presentation formats: textual, tabular, diagrammatic, bullet point, and code snippets. Our courseware library has been incrementally augmented, revised, and maintained. It is highly valued, especially with open source database, web server, and scripting language documentation which is typically less comprehensive than its proprietary software counterpart. For organizationís who have a requirement for their own employees to teach database subject matter or the need to have content available for presentation through a web-based learning medium, we will tailor and license our courseware.Training Programs
SYS-ED offers integrated Oracle and Microsoft database and application development training programs for Fortune 1000 companies, government municipalities, and healthcare providers.
Component database subject matter can be incorporated into a programming language training program. In conjunction with presenting a private training program at the client location, courseware is organized for subsequent utilization in a distance-learning delivery medium. This service is performed free of charge.Knowledge Base and Submit Database Questions
SYS-ED reviews information in the public domain distributed by software companies, international standards committees, and purveyors of open source software. We perform our own independent analysis and assessments of benchmarks for software updates and new products. Vendor documentation and third party content is interpreted and selectively incorporated into our courseware and training aids. SYS-ED clients are invited to submit database questions. Our system consultants and technology partners answer, explain, and where applicable reference source documentation. Questions are reviewed and answered on a first-come/first serve-basis. This service is available through our software specific database websites.
