Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify, classify, and provide a relative measure of importance of database administration and data administration activities. An initial set of 49 activities was identified using the results of an extensive literature survey, an analysis of DA and DBA functions at a multinational company, and an expert panel. A questionnaire was developed and used to classify the activities into data, database, or both and to rank them as to importance. The questionnaire was pilot tested prior to its use. This paper reports the results of an initial study and its extension. This research was a field survey of 24 information systems executives in 16 large corporations who were identified as having a key role and interest in data management issues. Follow–up interviews were conducted either by telephone or face–to–face. Eight database administration and seven data administration activities were determined to be of major importance. Two of the activities appear in both lists suggesting an overlapping area of responsibility due to technical and organizational considerations.
