Oracle DBaaS: The Changing Role of the DBA ( Cloud )

Hi Readers


The changing role of Oracle DBAs has been a very hot topic from the OOW17. Based on Larry Ellison Speech that humans will not be required for keeping running the databases, many people started to worry about it. The reality is very simple.. Autonomous Database Service will not be the regular mechanism of regular databases that could administer in “On-prem” enviroments.. etc.


I talk very deep about that subject in this article, check it:
