Database Administrators (also known as DBAs) are skilled IT professionals who serve as the gatekeepers of electronic data. They‰Ûªre tasked with ensuring that data remains consistent, clearly defined and accessible. Their job involves managing the performance and integrity of a database but they may also help in the mapping out phase of a planned database. DBAs in positions of authority manage the security of the information, by restricting user access to specific data.
Database Administrators often work closely with IT security experts and data analysts. They also work with database programmers, IT project managers and multimedia programmers. DBAs are sometimes required to work overnight or over the weekend to resolve any issues with the database.
