right, you can now be a full-fledged DBA with only $1k and two days of
your time. In an article by SearchOracle.com, Sara Cushman notes
mixed feedback on the controversial new Oracle 10g 2 day DBA training
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:
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"
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."
