I didn't think I'd ever be featured on YouTube before any of my children, but I've done it! Check out my video from Pervasive Software's Metamorphosis conference. Metamorphosis was a great conference, and Mike Hoskins mentioned some very interesting facts that will probably surprise you. One is that 20% of all enterprises will not have any IT resources in the coming years. Just think of everything IT does for you now -- and then be glad that Pervasive will be around to help the you keep functioning and accessing the data you need. Another point he made was that data is growing at the rate of 60% a year. I talk about all of that, about cloud computing, about Pervasive's ability to handle data from an MPP perspective, business analytics, web analytics and more. Check out the YouTube video.
