Oracle Specialist

Are you looking for an Oracle Specialist for your company? Are you based in Switzerland, Geneva or Lausanne? We take care of everything to find the consultant or engineer you need.

The Oracle Specialist, also called DBA for "Data Base Administrator", is the database administrator. Not all Oracle specialists have the same mission. Indeed, it depends on the size of the company, but also on the volume and criticality of all the databases he will have to manage.

Database management is therefore not necessarily a full-time job. The oracle specialist will therefore need to be versatile and diversify his or her functions.

However, certain tasks are still common to all oracle specialists, such as managing database performance and ensuring database availability, installing and configuring the database, managing and implementing security, and recovering and backing up data. Finally, the oracle specialist performs a technology watch to optimize and evolve the application.

The DBA must have certain well-defined technical skills. He or she plays an intermediate role as a consultant in a company, since he or she will communicate sometimes with the systems team and sometimes with the development team. He or she therefore has knowledge in various fields, which are not strictly speaking databases. However, all his knowledge and skills depend above all on his scope of intervention. Then, on his past experiences as well as his human skills.

For example, some oracle specialists have a high level of competence as an engineer in the field of storage architectures, when his position is targeted towards production. Others will have much more advanced skills in the development part.

As far as the human qualities required in the DBA are concerned, there are four that will be particularly necessary. First, curiosity. Indeed, he or she must be able to explore avenues for continuous improvement and be self-trained. Then comes listening and the ability to dialogue (manager), resistance to stress, and finally, rigor.

As far as training is concerned, the oracle specialist follows a development course with a specialization in databases. The best learning method remains professional experience, which allows the acquisition of the basics of the profession in the field.

For your Oracle Specialist research project, UNE takes care of selecting the best profiles corresponding to your request. A real tailor-made and qualitative service.
