Combining tutorial and reference elements, this guide provides a non- product-based description of database administration techniques and practices. It defines the job of the database administrator (DBA), underscoring the necessity of a DBA for a database management system (DBMS) implementation to succeed, then proceeds chronologically through every task the DBA is likely to encounter. The book can be used as a text for database administration, as the basis for setting up a DBA group, to augment a DBMS-specific text or manual, and to help upper-level management explain why the DBA position is necessary. Mullins is a data management strategist in the private sector.
