The future of database administrators in the era of the autonomous database

Autonomous databases are here. So who needs database administrators anymore?

whitepaper

The database world is abuzz with the prospect of autonomous databases. Like vehicles, autonomous databases are said to be self-driving, with all the benefits of lower costs and reduced error rates that come from removing the human factor of database administrators (DBAs). 

If DBAs continue to regard their job in the same way even as companies adopt autonomous databases, many DBAs may indeed go away. But are autonomous databases the real problem DBAs should be focused on? Which other factors are at work?

This whitepaper examines autonomous databases from the perspectives of companies interested in adopting them and of the DBAs they will most affect. It helps CIOs and IT directors to inform their decisions about purchasing and hiring, and helps DBAs to better understand their future in the era of the autonomous database.
