MCDBA Job Role

A Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA), also known as a database analyst or database developer, is an IT professional who manages information that is typically critical to the success of an organization. This data oversight includes knowing which data to store, how to organize that data, how to secure and preserve that data, and how to provide that data in such a way as to answer pressing business questions.

Duties of a MCDBA include the installation, performance and maintenance of a database management system, proficiency with SQL (Structured Query Language), planning the structure and design of a database through tools such as an entity relationship diagram, the creation of databases and database objects such as tables and views, database security, and the creation of interfaces and reports to input and view the data respectively. Database administration is a highly technical role. A good understanding of operating systems and networking is a big asset, as well as the ability to program. However, strong interpersonal skills are also important, especially when it comes time to understand and then translate the business needs of an organization into a database system. In addition, a strong business sense is critical; namely, the ability to map the workflow and related information flow of an organization to a database. A person who has a knack with this task has a long and promising career ahead.

A person may consider entering this field after attaining a Computer Science or Computer Engineering university degree or a one or two year computer diploma from a local technical institute. However, some database administrators are quite proficient without this recommended educational background or with, instead, a business-related educational background. Either way, at least some dedicated training and certification in a leading relational database is recommended. A high level of attention to detail, and the ability to translate business concepts into the data realm are key success factors for a database administrator.

A MCDBA, as he or she gains experience, generally has an increasing number of work opportunities, both within the same organization and from other organizations. In time, many database administrators move into more critical and higher paying roles such as a data warehouse specialist and data-mining expert, while others will choose a path leading towards IT management.
