A DBAs List of Little Things

2012/03/05

Today is Meme Monday.  Today we get to talk about all of the little things a DBA does.  Thomas LaRock started things off with his list – here.

I want to just add to the list he started.

  1. SAN Admin
  2. Server Admin
  3. Technical Writer
  4. Project Manager
  5. Automate the process to Migrate Data from Production to Dev/Test/QA
  6. Automate the process to Migrate Data from Production to Reporting Servers
  7. Export and Email/FTP/Transfer Data to customers
  8. Attend Sales meetings
  9. Predict customer requests before the request is made
  10. Create standards pertaining to the database environment
  11. Document
  12. Document
  13. Document
  14. Domain Admin
  15. Administer excel spreadsheets
  16. Administer Cognos, Crystal Reports, and Access (or any other tool that may provide a reporting interface for the database)
  17. Create Data warehouse
  18. Improve your skills

I really like the bullet item “therapist” from Tom’s list.  There is a lot of truth to that.
