How Training + Certification Keeps the DBA Relevant

There’s been a lot of talk about the changing role of the DBA.  But is the DBA out of a job?  No way according to this recent Forbes article Autonomous Capabilities Will Make Data Warehouses — And DBAs — More Valuable  According to Penny Avril, Vice president of Oracle Database product management. “DBAs still need to understand where the data lives, what the data represents, and which people and applications should get to see which data.”

We just saw this video from Joel Goodman – Master Principal Sales Consultant – who recorded a 5 minute product video explaining core DBA skills for Cloud versus On-Premises.  View it here.  

In this video Joel makes 5 important points about the skills and tools DBAs need in whatever environment they work:

  1. Oracle Database is the same basic software regardless of the deployment method or location
  2. Oracle Database Cloud Service databases are available in only a limited set of preconfigured option bundles
  3. Some skills and tool are relevant only in On-Premises Databases
  4. Some Skills and tools are relevant only when administering an Oracle DBaaS Cloud Database
  5. But 95% of the skill and knowledge is the same regardless of whether it is Cloud or On-Premises
