Where are these developers that are cheaper than a DBA? Over here, they get paid at $1500/day minimum, while DBAs are lucky if they can get $500/day... Isn't it about time we pin-pointed WHERE the expenses are going instead of rolling out the tired old "DBAs are expensive" chestnut? Might have been true 10 years ago. Not anymore and hasn't been for a looong time.
