DBA Transformations: Building Your Career in the Transition to On-Demand Cloud Computing and Extreme Automation

Buy
A book like this has been a long time coming. Being a DBA is not an easy calling – especially in today’s world. There was a time when DBAs were prized keepers of data within organizations. What we did was a mystery to most, but the role was somewhat predictable. With the introduction of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence, the role of the DBA has markedly changed. No two days are even remotely alike, and it seems the rate of change has accelerated beyond what most of us can comfortably cope with.

Everything evolves and the role of the DBA is no different. What separates those who thrive and feel energized from those who feel defeated, is whether one sees opportunity or dreads the tsunami of change that is upon us.

Michelle is not only a brilliant technologist, data security expert, and recognized author – she has also lived the life of a DBA for many years, and witnessed the dramatic change in the data ecosystem. Michelle’s book describes what the DBA of the future might look like and how to achieve success. For the first time ever, data has become a strategic resource in many organizations, offering a competitive edge if it is mined appropriately. While this poses many questions and raises concerns, it also provides immense opportunities for the DBA. No longer is the DBA responsible for mundane, predictable work; a whole new world of data (not database!) management has opened up that is fluid. The DBA role is now no longer rigidly defined but it must be co-created to incorporate many facets of data management. It is no longer about the technology, but about the enablement of business and strategy through technology.
