A Database Architect is a highly skilled IT professional that plays an important, strategic role by supporting growth plans for your database. They have a specialized skill set that enables them to meet the needs of software designers, design analysts and other key players to help plan a database that will be usable by hundreds or thousands of users.
Four strong skills of an experienced database architect are:

- Programmatic: Write strong, well-behaved code ensuring security standards and integration requirements are met
- Technological: Perform upgrades, updates and ongoing maintenance to optimize performance
