Wonder if I should learn SQL Server 05 or Oracle/ Or both? I am giving myself 1 year to learn it. How to brake into that field? I read that nobody is hiring a DBA without experience.
I've a masters degree in computer application.I would like to become a database administrator. What should I learn?
How do the skills for this role compare to the skills needed for other types of DBAs?
I am more looking for information regarding types such as system DBA, database architect, database analyst, application DBA, task-oriented DBAs (performance analysts), and data warehouse administrators...
My tutor foresees the possibility of the role of the database administrator to be replaced totally by automated scripts, and, machines.
How valid is this forecast?
What technologies are being developed by database vendors such as IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft to reduce the manual tinkering involved in database administration?
When is this foreseen to happen?
A database administrator (short form DBA) is a person responsible for the installation, configuration, upgrade, administration, monitoring and maintenance of databases in an organization.[
Database management systems ?
For one of my new years goals, I have decided to try to get 1, just 1 at least, certification before the end of the year. I am about to go into my last year of college and would love to bag a certification along w/ my degree. I am planning on trying to be a DBA when I get out. I am enrolled in a 4 year computer science program.
Which certification would work best considering my timeframe? (12 months)
Which brand of database has a bigger shortage of DBAs? (I.e. bigger demand)
I m oracle db2 certified..m a fresher..where will i get opportunities for a dba job..
Which type of jobs are available on oracle course and Sql
Oracle and Sql are same or differenet ? And tell me about types of jobs with oracle like oracle Dba or oracle developer like this . . . .
I'm thinking about taking some database classes; either Intro to Visual Basic / SQL Server but I'm new to this and have NO prior database or programming experience.
Can anyone give me some advice on where I should start? I've seen titles such as "Database Administrator" and "Database Developer". Now, I tend to be on the creative side (e.g. music, art). Would I fit better in one than the other? Any advice would be most appreciated.
Pls tell me which one is best..
1. Oracle DBA
2. Oracle Apps DBA,
4. MYSQL DBA

I have been working in Software Industry since 7 years now. I had worked mostly on Database programming and designing which includes SQL Server and Oracle.
Now, I am getting break in IT department of very big Financial company. I had already cleared all technical interviews. Problem is that, this company has neither SQL Server nor Oracle. It has Sybase and uDB2 under Linux.
I don't know what is the demand for these dabases and what will be the carrier prospects after working on these technologies. I will get good raise in my salary, no doubt about that, but is it worth shifting to these technologies?
Please give me some openion.
I am the only the only database administrator/analyst for my 1,500+ member employer. I have about 10 years of experience as a dba, but have only been with this company for a little under a year.
One of the more senior members of the company that is outside of my office, department, and chain of command asked me to create an MS Access Database specifically for his department. I cordially told him no and politely explained that we have a more robust solution with our IBM DB2 and SAP Business Objects implementation that corporate has dictated we use and that I would be more than willing to help him utilize it.
Months go by and I get occasional calls wondering why his department's work isn't showing up in the db. I check everything, there is no issue with our DB2 database or even the API he and his office would use to input their data...
A few days ago, I find out he decided to go ahead and have one of the people in his department build a ms access db anyway. Now, I am receiving non stop calls and emails about their ms access database failure and his office expects me to promptly fix it.
I take one look at it and it is a complete mess...and 95?f the information in the database is already housed in the consolidated DB2 database that he was asked to use to begin with!
I have informed my boss, who has said that he would talk to him about it, but hasn't even after several subtle reminders...
Should I take the bull by the horns and roll what relevant information there is in his ms access db into the DB2 db and delete his?
I get the feeling that his resistance to using the API for the DB2 database is because he is unfamiliar with it as we have recently rolled out our new system back when I was hired on. His office (as well as this company) has always had a series of disjointed ms access databases that is always out of sync with every other department in the company...
His office is nearly 100 miles away from mine and I am not about to drive up there and show him how to use it...
After 6 months unemployed and blaming the credit crunch, I've decided to be a little more proactive in my job hunt (the redundancy money is running out though secretly I'd still like the rest of the summer off!) My CV has been reviewed by an online expert for the princely sum of £10 and I got the following advice back.
You need to qualify and quantify each of your achievements by showing measurable results. A helpful way that you can do this is to use STAR - Situation - Task - Action - Result - as a template for each of your bullet points.
I've had a go but I'm struggling as I'm trying to use positive words to identify success and it makes it very wordy. My CV is already at 2 pages long which is apparently the max it should be.
As an example to help me, how would you STAR the following 2 achievements? Don't worry if you make up lies, it is a CV afterall!
1. I was the Technical Business Analyst, Project Manager and Development Team Leader on this 6-month project to create a new DB2 database with a web front-end and CICS/COBOL back-end.
2. Project Manager on a new billing project to replace the old monthly billing with a new daily billing system. This included development and QA teams, DBA's and senior managers in the finance department as well as working with two offshore development teams.
This is my attempt but I don't think it follows STAR very well, but, like I say, I'd like to get the message across in less, not more words.
1. Technical Business Analyst, Project Manager and Development Team Leader on a 6-month project to create a new [product name removed] database and website. Organised design meeting across 4 separate companies to design a system that overcame management concerns over security and data sharing.
2. Project Manager on a new billing project to replace the old monthly billing with a new daily billing system. Coordinated two offshore development companies so they could work together effectively and successfully deliver the project on time.
It isn't easy. I can do the job, just can't write the CV to get the interview!
Thanks very much.
