Job Growth Continues for DBAs in 2018

Published by Ahmad on

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics,

Employment of database administrators (DBAs) is projected to grow 11 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Growth in this occupation will be driven by the increased data needs of companies in all sectors of the economy. Database administrators will be needed to organize and present data in a way that makes it easy for analysts and other stakeholders to understand.

The increasing popularity of database-as-a-service, which allows database administration to be done by a third party over the Internet, could increase the employment of DBAs at cloud computing firms in the data processing, hosting, and related services industry. Employment of DBAs in this industry is projected to grow 17 percent from 2016 to 2026.

Employment of DBAs in the computer systems design and related services industry is projected to grow 20 percent from 2016 to 2026. The increasing adoption of cloud services by small and medium-sized businesses that do not have their own dedicated information technology (IT) departments could increase the employment of DBAs in establishments in this industry.

I possess 10+ years of DBA experience and feel the other way round. Due to automation (scripting and automated features in new versions), the DBA jobs have already reduced. Since last 2 years I have observed organisations demanding multi skilled DBA (eg. DBA required who is skilled on Oracle, Mssql and Poatgresql or DBA required on DB2, Oracle and MySQL). Teams of 5 DBAs reduced to 4 and in 6 months 3 DBAs. Now a days recruiters need a DBA to even do PL/SQL coding! Myself and other DBA friends feel that DBA jobs will go extinct in few years time.
