Database administration refers to the entire activities performed by a database administrator to ensure that a database readily made available when needed. It entails the functions of maintaining and managing the database management systems.
The role of database administration is usually dedicated to the IT department for a big firm, while small firms that cannot afford the cost of setting up a full-time database administration department engage the services of IT firms to handle their database administration.
The primary importance of database administration is to ensure that there is sufficient up time for the database, to enable the database to always be available especially when needed. This will involve taking proactive periods of monitoring and troubleshooting.
The responsibility of database administration involves installing and configuring database servers and other related products, evaluating the features of a database, maintain a sound recovery policies and backup procedures for the recovery of data, taking maximum care of the implementation and database design, maintaining and implement database security roles, maintaining and setting up standards and documentation, monitoring performance and application tuning.
The personnel and skill that would be required to manage a database is dependent on the level of automation of the database. A database with a very minimal automation would require some reasonable significant experience resources to effective management. An organization may want to automate some significant amount of its work that can be done manually to reduce the skill that would be required to perform the task. As the level of automation increases, the needs of the personnel of a firm divides into highly skilled workers, who are saddled with the responsibility of creating the automation and also managing it, and another group consisting of lower-skilled workers whose duties is to execute the automation.
The work of Database administration is quite complex and requires a lot of training, it is also time-consuming and repetitive. Since a database is of critical importance to a firm, firms usually look for candidates with multiple years of experience for a big firm who want to employ in their IT department and for small firms to contract a seasoned and reputable IT firm.
Database administration often requires the administrator to work off-hours to ensure the efficiency of data.
