Microsoft SQL Server Database Administration

Database Administration is today one of the most crucial tasks of the IT department. It is almost impossible to find an information system or an application that did not use database administration technologies to any extent.

Most server applications, especially distributed, use databases to store not only the user, but also the performance and configuration information. Therefore the database administration skills (especially Microsoft SQL Server) can help almost any IT professional to significantly improve performance efficiency and enhance one’s value in the labor market.

For a lot of users and application developers the ability to work with databases, to analyze and structure requests gives an opportunity to improve the overall efficiency when dealing with information, and to shorten the time spent for making the right business decisions.

So what are the tasks for database administration professionals? There are a lot of new and extremely important tasks: from providing distributed synchronization and high availability to virtualization and cloud applications. Another area of competence improvement: intelligent search technology, analysis and reporting (Business Intelligence, Data Mining, Smart Reporting).
