Database Administrators (also known as DBAs) are skilled IT professionals who manage complex database systems. They are responsible for the design, creation and maintenance of a company or an organization‰Ûªs database. Their duties may also involve technical training, data backups, determining user access and performing data migration between old and new systems.
In larger companies, Database Administrators may work alongside other data analysts and IT professionals. For smaller organization, DBAs may double as a system administrator, responsible for the maintenance of the computer and server. Because DBAs play such a critical role in a company, they often work irregular hours during the week and over the weekend. Database Administrators who handle the design and development of databases may be referred to as Data Architects or Development DBAs.
