One of the trends facing the Database Industry is that while databases are getting bigger and more complex, we are actually seeing a shortage of database administrators. (For more information on that trend check out the Ntirety sponsored study on Data Professionals’ Career Aspirations). The role of the Database Administrator has evolved. Back in the day when we first started working with Oracle, there were three books for everything. You could be the DBA that knew it all! Today frankly that is not possible. DBA’s skills are becoming silos of expertise. Today there is a need for a Database Specialist.

For example, you have a doctor you go to for your overall health, but if you need brain surgery you go to a specialist. Doctors have specialties and now so do DBAs. Hence the Database Specialist!

Some of the many DBA Silos:

  • Production DBA
  • Development DBA
  • O/S DBA
  • Application DBA
  • vRAC DBA
  • vDBA
  • Cloud DBA
  • VLDB DBA
  • Datawarehouse DBA
  • E-Business Suite DBA

You might be dealing with issues such as clustering, virtualizing, or consolidating your database. Or you may be trying to develop a cloud strategy or best practices. The database has become so complex, it’s beyond the capability of 1 or 2 people to understand it all. You need a Database Specialist or a team of DBAs. This is where Ntirety can help and it’s the reason Ntirety was founded in the first place. We recognized early on that it was beyond the capabilities of the average mid-sized company to deal with the complexities of the ever changing technology that is out there today.

If you want to prevent DBA burnout or prevent DBA stress, get a database specialist or a team of DBAs! Ntirety has the database specialist you need with the right expertise to keep everyone happy and stable. Let us help you with your database administration needs.
