    NEWS FLASHES

    DATABASE SKILLS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER IN EMERGING DIGITAL ENTERPRISES

    Some industry pundits have been speculating that with cloud and IT automation, the need for database administrators (DBAs) is going to fade. However, this is far from reality. In fact, the DBA is even more vital than ever to enterprises—and the jobs of DBAs are evolving rapidly to meet new challenges and technology paradigms.

    DON’T MISS IOUG AT ORACLE OPENWORLD 2015

    The Independent Oracle Users Group is headed to San Francisco this October to join the Oracle technology community at Oracle OpenWorld 2015.

Organizations in which this happens—which is most companies—are typically characterized by an attitude that the role of the DBA is to simply keep things running. The order from the top is "Just make sure the database doesn't break anything, OK?" This is a missed opportunity and a waste of a very valuable resource that hampers IT organizations everywhere.
