Good article. And good discussion. Your point “Don’t risk more than you can afford to lose” is so fundamental to the developer and DBA, but also the business. I would just add that it is important to communicate with the business managers when risk is identified. The DBA, developers, or IT staff, may not be able to properly assess exactly the risk or what a company can afford to lose for a particular company.

Good article. The danger with being a jack-of-all-trades is that you tend to be spread very thinly and important tasks get skipped (like backups). That said, there is value in being a specialist in one area and a generalist in related areas. Like being a SQL specialist and a Windows generalist. There's no arguing the value of that combo.
