Oracle announces 2-day DBA Training

March 15, 2004

That's right, you can now be a full-fledged DBA with only $1k and two days of your time.  In an article by, Sara Cushman notes mixed feedback on the controversial new Oracle 10g 2 day DBA training class.,289142,sid41_gci953643,00.html

The 2-day Oracle DBA class does not require pre-existing technical; savvy, except maybe the use of a personal computer.   In an article on ZDNET news, we see some hyperbola on two-day DBAs:,39023166,20280027,00.htm

In this article, Robert Shimp, Oracle's vice president of technology, was quoted "Oracle 10g also will include features that automate database administration, which means that ongoing maintenance will be minimal, he said."  . .. "Our tuning and management capabilities are better than anyone can do by hand,"

Oracle has also published an Oracle10g document titled "Oracle Database 2 Day DBA"


DBA Reactions:

Practicing DBAs are very skeptical.   Notes from the popular Oracle-L list server show DBAs struggling with installing and configuring Oracle10g.

Mike Ault, premier Oracle DBA guru, says it all.  "We see the simplified installer running properly, and the two-day DBA might be right for a very small business.  However, all larger Oracle shops are going to need the power of all the Oracle enterprise features".  This cannot be taught in a 2-day DBA course."
