What is an Oracle DBA?
In general terms, a database administrator (DBA) is responsible for the organization, integrity, and management of a company’s data. While the specific roles, responsibilities, duties, and job titles of a DBA can vary greatly, the DBA typically applies knowledge of database management systems (DBMS) to define, create, maintain, back up, and secure an organization’s databases.
- The principal objective of the DBA is to ensure that authenticated users have access to the data they need, when they need it
- The DBA has excellent problem-solving abilities, a high level of expertise in the relevant database(s) and related technologies, and knows how to communicate effectively with a range of techies and non-techies alike
- All industries rely heavily on databases
DBAs work closely with business analysts and information systems managers to select or develop databases that support business needs and keep those databases running smoothly and securely.
