I'm not so sure this document should be Oracle-specific. SQL Server = will be entering many organizations because there are a growing number = if applications which support only it. One of the problems is going to = handling information in a heterogenous environment. Products such as = Oracle's Interconnect and MIIS provide means to do so. Oracle has also = been keen on their datahub. Management of data in an environment which = includes different ERP vendors as well as different databases is in = store for many of us, if it hasn't arrived already. =20

Besides addressing data management. You may also want to address user = management. Do you just support one client. Single signon, = Smartcards, authentication and authorization, account provisioning. How = can database technology help here?

... come to those who wait.

My manager has informed me that he would like me to take on a role as a database architect rather than 'just' as a DBA.

Good news for me, as that is what I was hired to do at another job about 52 months ago. Too bad it was at Enron Broadband Services.

But that's not exactly why I am writing here.

One of the tasks in this capacity is to develop a database=20 roadmap for our company. Where the technology is going, how we should exploit it, etc.

As this is something I have not previously done, I was wondering if anyone has or knows of examples they can share. It would=20 be nice to see what is typically expected (or not expected) with this type of a document.

I'm not looking too plagiarize, but just get a better feel for this type of document, what level of detail it may or may not provide, that sort of thing.

I have googled for it, but couldn't come up with anything useful.
