  6. 6. Oracle Autonomous Database i oThe goal behind Oracle Autonomous Database is to eliminate a lot of the manual labor that DBAs had to do in the past, which n turn eliminates quite a bit of their day-to-day responsibilities Installation, configuration, upgrade, and migration Backup and recovery Storage and capacity planning Database security Performance monitoring and tuning Troubleshooting
  7. 7. Oracle breaks its database automation into three areas • Self-driving, which means the database itself handles patching, upgrades, and tuning while the database is running, and without the need for any human intervention. • Self-securing databases take care of all their own security needs. They automatically encrypt data, handle security updates without the need for downtime, and protect against external and internal attacks. Self-repairing means that the database will "automatically detect and apply corrective actions to ensure nonstop access to your data." It also uses Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and cross-region Oracle Active Data Guard to increase uptime and smooth repairs.

  11. 11. So DBA, What do you do ? • Get more technical – every time a new project comes in, sharpen your skills. Get more involved in failover clustering, storage, virtualization, or the cloud. Write technical presentations to teach your own company’s staff, and then the public. • Business intelligence – if you’re constantly surrounded by valuable data, and you’ve got a creative eye, you can help make sense out of all those letters and numbers. There’s never been a better time to help people get actionable insight out of your tables. It’s a wildly different career path than DBA – it involves more time with people, and less time with maintenance plans.
  12. 12. So DBA, What do you do ? • Consult – get technical enough, and develop a reputation for solving tough problems quickly, and you can change gears entirely. Instead of working for a single company, you can move around from company to company, giving guidance on how to put out more fires faster. • Contract – in some markets, you can keep doing what an employee does, but as an outsider. Consultants tell companies what to do, and contractors do what they’re told. If you enjoy the job duties and don’t really care for the big picture, contracting can be more lucrative.
  13. 13. So DBA, What do you do ? • Management – if you have enough IT pros around you, and you’ve got a knack for people skills, you can really shift gears and manage people instead of servers. Caution, though: this is nothing to do with databases whatsoever. The skills that served you so well troubleshooting a cluster may not help you motivate an employee you don’t like to do a task they hate. • Architecture – your constant interactions with developers teach you more and more about building large systems. Because you’re more senior than other folks in the shop, you end up giving design guidance. Eventually you spend more time doing guidance than managing databases, or they hire a junior DBA in to backfill your production duties.
