Digital shunners & digital world

Once a leader saw me wearing a bluetooth haedset & stated he won't be assimilated, referring to the borg from star trek. Tough time for those leaders who shunned technology during the last decade and now have to drive it as their company decides to go digital and move into platforms and monetizing apps. They look uncomfortable and out of place. Can a person who neither understands or is able to figure out the new platforms of information build a strategy for something similar ? Is their company taking a big risk by putting them in the driver seat ? Only time will tell and hope it does not run out for these companies.

Wow ! mariadb j driver is faster or ...

Just played around in fuse with queries/s metrics on mysql. After a lot of dbcp tuning got it to 4k/s.

The just for the heck of it switched to mariadb j connector. 5k/s !
How ? Why ?
Have checked many times. Same result. No idea.

Also if dbcp2 can't load your driver just create a bean and give it the ref. It will work !

Basic ds is way faster than shared pool ds and put the password in conn props to hide from jmx.

Out of IBM

12 yrs, 6 months and 2 days later I move out of IBM. Gr8 place to be in but then India is different, in both kind of work and management style. My aspirations were different from the companies strategy and therefore decided to part ways.

Will miss the culture n ppl with whom I had got used to working with at the big blue.

Last few months were hard. The client needed dumb (one who does not speak) kind of ppl, rather than a partner n it was getting tough to act that way. Their unrealistic demands n expectation showed their complete lack of either knowledge or common sense. Their visions were myopic n leadership absent. Whistle blowers or giver of bad news were quickly sidelined. A culture of croonies is prevalent who all bow to the autocrat.
