A Christmas Data Poem by Martin Erasmuson
Twas the night before Christmas, and through all the laughter
Things were a stirring, especially the data.
On spread sheets and web forms and RDBMS,
And the ones still on paper (still data no less).
And lakes filled with data of every description
And format with AI that sounds more like fiction.
IT Teams all nestled round beers and wines-red
While serverless-computing thoughts dance in their heads.
With backups all run on the servers with care
In the hope that DR isn’t needed this year.
Fingers-crossed for a digital transformation breakthrough
But where it is taking us, we don’t have a clue.
In this festive season I’m still sure of one thing,
Technology’s great; but data is king.
