Careers in database administration

The Database Administrator deploy their analytical skills and technical skills ensuring optimal functioning of the database servers. In larger business operations, they are an important part of the Information Technology operations team and must always monitor production databases to ensure no operational or performance issues arise. When problems do occur, management skills and strong analysis skills kick in to high gear and DBAs work diligently with Advanced Data Management to find solutions quickly and efficiently. 

A successful Database Administrator must have the technical skills and detailed understanding of the database engines they are working with, which is why an Oracle DBA won't be able to manage MS SQL or MySQL databases. Each businesses will require someone depending on their specific RDBMS (Relational Database Management System). It's also essential that DBAs have strong analysis skills and are knowledgable in Structured Query Language (SQL) so they can construct queries and upkeep operations for all the databases under their management.

Knowing the intricacies of SQL dialects is an important skill for every Database Administrator along with strong analysis skills. As with most standards, even though all database engines implement it in their own unique way, there are still small differences that set each RDBMS apart from one another and must be known by those working on them.
