why you think this? always a company keep a total package of budget of IT or database one , so if the oracle price is up, other cost should be down. .

Some companies just laid off their dba on site and outsource their DBA works to India. A lot of big company do that for several years... companies do not care if you use a gui tool or not, they only concern a "number" finally.

anyway, I hope all DBAs keep their positions and do not need to work in Bombay in the end.

Of course , I pay full respect to those Indian great DBAs, they also have good DBA skills.

Thanks a lot.
