The DBA in Practice

  • Jay-Louise Weldon
Part of the Applications of Modern Technology in Business book series (AMTB)


The discussions of dba roles and responsibilities in the previous chapters may give the impression that dba is a formal and well-structured function in all organizations where it exists. In actuality, this is not so. The broad and detailed view presented so far is meant to touch on the many aspects of the dba function. However, one must realize that the full dba function is seldom if ever encountered in practice.
