A lot of attention has been spent on consolidation, automation and cloud, purportedly creating less demand for data managers and DBAs. However, the opposite seems to be true. In fact, there is a growing need for more database talent and expertise to manage growing complexity. A new survey of data executives, managers and professionals finds this is part of an increasingly challenging data environment.
The research, conducted by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc., covered issues facing today’s data shops. The 303 respondents represent a range of industries and company sizes. The survey, conducted among readers of Database Trends and Applications, was sponsored by IDERA.
