DATABASE ADMINISTRATION

Importance of Database Administration

 

Most SQL Servers are installed and managed by Windows System Administrators. SQL Server can be installed with a few clicks and most vendors provide setup scripts. Why do you need a database administrator? Today, data is the life blood of the organization and databases enable most functions within the organization. What happens if you lose your data? Whether it is sales, payroll, shipping, inventory or other data, companies can be brought to a halt if their databases aren’t functioning properly. Managing and protecting databases takes a different skill than managing servers and file shares. Backups and data quality is extremely important due to the interrelationship of data and the ever-looming potential for corruption within databases. Furthermore, the overall security of your data and the servers in which it resides has become monumental due to the increase of cyber crimes.
