Careers in STEM
Database administrators use specialist software to organise and maintain a secure database. As a database administrator (DBA) you will be responsible for the performance, integrity and security of a database. You will be involved in the planning and development of the database, as well as in troubleshooting any issues on behalf of the users.
You will ensure that:
- data remains consistent across the database
- data is clearly defined
- users access data concurrently, in a form that suits their needs
- there is provision for data security and recovery control (ensuring all data is retrievable in an emergency).
