Database administrators collaborate cross-functionally to ensure that infrastructure and applications are optimized so that they deliver the maximum benefits to both the business and the customers it serves.
Applications and databases are key assets to every line of business. Typical applications and responsibilities include ERP, CRM, IoT, analytics, industry-specific (e.g., vertical), and DevOps. Today, traditional relational databases are complemented by NoSQL options for nontransactional use cases.
In today’s increasingly competitive business climate, line-of-business leadership must accelerate the pace of innovation while enabling DevOps teams to consume infrastructure resources as needed, with the investment and operational objective of reducing the cost of a business transaction.
