Schumacher defects to MySQL

May 27, 2005

Noted database expert Robin Schumacher announced yesterday that he has accepted a position as Worldwide Director of Product Management for MySQL.

Schumacher, a respected database tuning and optimization expert and author in both Oracle and SQL Server, will begin his new duties in June 2005.

Open source databases such as MySQL and EnterpriseDB have long been posturing themselves to compete with behemoths DB2, Oracle and SQL Server.  Some industry observers consider this announcement as bad news for the proprietary database vendors.

Donald K. Burleson, President of Burleson Consulting notes that high-octane experts like Schumacher should make all other database vendors take heed:

"Robin Schumacher has a proven track record of expanding loyal customer bases.  He is one of the rare individuals who possesses both outstanding management skills and an in-dept understanding of the technology.  He is sure to be a huge asset to MySQL.

Once these open source vendors get a reputation for delivering safe, scalable and robust database solutions, the primary distinguishing characteristics will be the price".
