Oracle Data Warehouse DBA Skills

Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

An Oracle data warehouse DBA has specialized Oracle DBA skills relating to the administration and management of a large database with an analytical front-end:

  • Very large databases (VLDB) - Oracle DBA partitioning skills.

  • Decision support systems (DSS) - Materialized view DBA setup and Oracle Discoverer administration.

  • Online analytical processing (OLAP) - Star schema design and DBA administration.

In addition, some Oracle data warehouse DBA's require skills in Business Intelligence tools management for products such as Oracle Discoverer, Oracle warehouse builder (OWB) and Oracle Data Mining (ODM).

Oracle data warehouse DBA skills

The Oracle data warehouse DBA often has an advanced degree in statistics because multivariate (chi square) analysis is part and parcel of Oracle advanced analytics. The Oracle data warehouse DBA must also understand predictive modeling and probability analysis.

The Oracle data warehouse DBA must also have specialized skills on Oracle materialized views, Oracle partitioning, and specific OLAP tools such as Cognos and SAS Clementine. 

For an example Oracle DBA data warehouse resume, see Dr. Carolyn Hamm.  Note her DBA data warehousing skills and education:

  • DBA data warehouse skills - Oracle Discoverer, Oracle OLAP and Oracle Data Warehouse Builder, and is an expert in multivariate statistics using SAS, SPSS and Clementine.

  • Data warehouse degree - Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology

  • DBA data warehouse professional memberships - NIH Data Mining Multidisciplinary Research Team 2005 Oracle Life Science User Group (OLSUG)

  • DBA research publication in data warehousing - An Operational Data Store for Reporting Clinical Practice Guideline Adherence in Chronic Disease Patients

Here are my notes on Oracle data warehouse DBA skills:
