In this sixth interview of our series, we talk with Daniel Poff, Director of Database Administration and SAP Basis at Kindred Healthcare, about his company's major upgrade challenge from a five-year old server platform and how they dealt with issues such as dramatic growth in business complexity, internal reorganizations, business acquisitions, and an over 10X increase in overall database size.
