The control and maintenance of the database management systems of an organisation is the responsibility of a database administrator. Database management systems (DMS) which meet user requirements are planned, built and developed.
The responsibilities and duties of the database administrator can include:
Liaising with internal managers and teams to develop DMS to meet data requirements and requirements for configuration
Maintenance of elements of DMS, such as architecture, tables, arrangement and conventions for naming
Ensuring that DMS is up-to-date by bug checking and solving technical problems
Managing delivery and protocols of DMS data
Maintaining maximum DMS productivity and monitoring user controls.
As they are repetitive and rules-based, these technical activities are especially well-suited to being outsourced, requiring a high degree of attention to detail. Through sending these activities to outsourced database managers, organisations will free up their local web development teams time. This enables the onshore workers to concentrate on work of higher value.
What key skills and qualifications make a great administrator of a database?
Database administrators are actively working with computers to ensure systematic security, storage and access management surrounding vast volumes of data. They have to have a good understanding of data security, cloud-based technology and recovery procedures to do this effectively.
Database managers are hired by outsourcing providers the same way an internal talent acquisition team does. Essentially, to understand whether these offshore applicants will be able to provide the standard of quality expected by Australian organisations, they ask the same questions:
What experience and expertise do you have while working with database software to ensure the data is properly processed, structured and managed?
How familiar are you with the design of databases and fulfilling user requirements?
What are your talents for problem-solving and troubleshooting like?
When speaking with IT project managers to design DMS, how do you maintain excellent communication?
What methods of data protection and disaster recovery plans do you use?
Provide an illustration of how you have shown a high degree of precision and attention to detail.
What are the DMS you are familiar with?
A higher education degree or certificate in computer science, software engineering, electronic engineering or mathematics is desirable in terms of qualifications. In professional programmes such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle, database administrators need to be fluent. By recruiting these professionals who can effectively monitor DMS and handle user requirements accordingly, outsourcing firms can help you find the right applicant to fulfil the tech support requirements of your company.
Benefits of outsourcing administration services for databases
Organizations should appreciate the added benefits that come from offshoring database administration duties, including:
Increased employee satisfaction
Offer peace of mind to the local staff by relieving them of any unnecessary duties and sharing the workload with a member of the offshore team or team. Within your business, this will help improve employee satisfaction. You would expect to see a positive shift in the working environment with your database management team able to concentrate on what they were hired to do.
Hiring local workers will prove to be very expensive for an organisation. Recruiting a member of the offshore team who can support the local team with regular database management activities for a fraction of the price can help you monitor the organization's costs, saving up to 70% compared to local hiring.
Recruiting the administration of full-time offshore databases will help increase income and supercharge the growth of your company. Your local workforce would have more flexibility to take on more work and expand your company sustainably by adding extra capacity with an offshore team.
It will allow your local team to take on more work by sending regular, time-consuming, repeatable system administrator tasks offshore. You will note a dramatic improvement in performance and productivity within your company by splitting the workload between your onshore and offshore teams.
