As the strategic role of databases continues to advance within organizations, the task of finding and retaining experienced DBAs has become increasingly difficult. DBAs are seen as the “Go-To” specialist for internal IT teams due to their knowledge across a wide spectrum of information technology and processes. In an increasingly complex environment, database administrators design, support, and safeguard a company’s critical data stores, ultimately allowing organizations to make better business decisions.
Finding Internal DBAs for Your Business
Because of the responsibilities they handle, hiring an experienced DBA for an internal team has become incredibly competitive. There’s a high price attached to these IT professionals, and finding one with the expertise perfect for your environment’s needs adds additional complexity to the search. The rising costs attached to hiring an in-house DBA results in some companies failing to acquire or retain the specialists they need to properly leverage their database infrastructure.
Many enterprises in more rural parts of the country encounter the same struggle in finding a qualified DBA to manage their environment internally. With a smaller talent pool to access, the right expertise for your infrastructure may not be available, or simply be outside budget restrictions.
