A database administrator (DBA) is responsible for installing, configuring, monitoring, and maintaining databases in an organization. The DBA develops and designs database strategies, monitors and improves system and database performance and capacity, and plans for future data needs. They may also plan, coordinate, and implement security measures to safeguard the database.

Data is the life-blood of any organization, so regardless of trends and fads in programming theory, good Database Administrators will always be in demand.
