When I saw "DBAA" I thought it was a reference to a support group for recovering DBA's...

Too funny Dave! But I do agree with Jeffrey that this is a logical path for some database professionals to take the next (or 12th) step. If you've ever been on a job interview where you are asked "Do you prefer being a Production DBA, Development DBA, Data Architect or ETL Developer?" and you answer "All of the above", you would probably be an excellent candidate for DBAA.

Great article!

After spending a lot of years being a DBA then the next best thing must be a DBAA position. But I've never seen a text explaining it this clear! Excellent.

I have been a DBA for almost 15 years and someone in our US office told me some months back that they should consider to make me DBAA and I did not understand that until I Jeffrey article what a wonderful thought? Please hook up with the MS folks to come up with something towards certifications keep the good work. Having said that with my current role, I have been doing 99% of all that Jeffrey had just said therefore you have my backing please keep us in the loop with any further or future developments with MS towards the certifications. I must also confirm that I am one of those guy's who do not believe in certification, but all the keep up with the good work and always stay blessed.

Hi,

Nice try, but..

Your big confusion it is definition database architect as lead of database administrator(s):

 DBA architect it is about knowledge (design\manage\etc.) of sql server (in this case) and experience.

To be leader you do not need to be database architect - it is about leadership skills first then knowledge of your product\business\industry\etc.

 

 

Eugene

But it is not about being a leader, it about being somebody to decide the future architecture of a system. The leader then will lead the team to build that future.

Eugene,

I honestly and totally disagree with your suggestion/opinion rather I agreed with Zubeyir. How can you lead a team if you do not have the necessary as well as the technical skills required? As I said before I have seen and heard all that before but I am not here to tell who is right or who is wrong but just to confirm what Jeffrey had written. At the moment any technology that will be deploy within the company I have to give the go ahead after couple of months testing, I always have to give the advantages and disadvantages towards any new project such as ROI, cost, and IT risk analysis. Why such huge responsibilities on my head simply because I knew the business logic and I do also understands the flows of information within the business and its boundaries. My recent project was MOSS 2007 for content management, global enterprise search for both extranet and intranet as well as for managing sensitive Online document management and access. Now if I do not have the technical skills how could one spearhead such project? Therefore, the technical skills come first then the rest follows up, and after all this the most important skills you will need is COMMUNICATION. Because communication skills supper-seed all the skills you might have without communication skills one is just like a ship without a radar. Always stay blessed.
