Agreed on the cloud! We’re moving that direction (just like everyone else) and I can see a good portion of this going away. Another piece that I forgot to mention is he wanted to know which activities would be considered project/non-project work. Pretty much everything I considered non-project is gone when in relation to the cloud.

Thanks for the reply!

CAUTION - EXTERNAL EMAIL That's a pretty good list for the job as it is today. In a cloud world it will look quite different (half your list disappears) .

My boss is asking me to compile a list of typical job functions for a DBA. I came up with a brief list, but would like to hear any other recommendations that you might have. What he said was, “We don’t want to go into great detail, but not be too vague either. Somewhere between the 10,000ft and 1,000ft view.

Agile Work
Change Deployment
Database Design
Database Install
DR Activities (testing/maintenance)
Performance Tuning/Monitoring
Scripting DB/Host
Solution Design

Thanks in advance,
