Database Management Survey 2013
As part of my PhD with the Open University I am currently undertaking an independent database survey . My research investigates the current practices and procedures that are used and examines the complexities of managing database systems.
I have responses coming in across the database industry from people who use various different engines including SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, CouchDb, Hadoop etc.
My Database Management Survey is at http://svy.mk/UcaxDm and is for database administrators, data professional to complete. It is a comprehensive survey that maps the end to end lifecycle for managing database systems across the current systems of on premises, cloud, differing databases engines, virtualization and big data.
Please spend 15 minutes of your time to help the database industry and try to complete the full survey. There are no prizes for helping, just the satisfaction that you have helped the database community as a whole and of course my gratitude.
Don’t be left out and have your say in this independent PhD research survey.
Can a survey be saved halfway and finished later?
Survey Monkey says, yes, the system allows respondents to leave the survey and resume it later. However, this functionality is dependent on the settings you create for the collector.
The system saves responses through either a cookie or by the actual survey link. In either case, the [Next] button on a page or the [Done] button at the end of the survey must be clicked to save the page(s) of answers.
