Future of Database Administrators in the Cloud Era

November 15, 2018 OneNeck IT Solutions

A database management transformation is underway. Some say it threatens the long-term future of database administrators (DBAs). As more enterprises shift to multi-cloud and hybrid cloud solutions, automating their products with self-driving, self-patching and self-healing features, it has some in management thinking they don’t need managed DBA services anymore.

While the role of the DBA may change, this transformation does not mean the DBA will disappear. According to Biju Thomas, Principal Solutions Architect at OneNeck, “Data is—and will remain—the lifeblood of business. DBAs will continue to play a central role, providing valuable insights into how organizations will best harness their data to produce business value.”

In a recent CIOReview article, Thomas discusses the six traits you should expect from the future DBA and the ways in which they will add value to the business in the cloud era.
