Abstract

Database administration has traditionally been a function that has been internal to the data processing organization. Contact with corporate personnel outside of data processing has always been limited. But, at this point in the evolution of data processing, end-users, with a variety of new tools at their disposal, are showing a great deal of interest in direct data access. This report describes the results of a survey of 36 companies in the Chicago, New York City, and South Florida regions, with two goals. One was to examine database administration functions today, in terms of their organizations, reporting structures, and responsibilities, as they stand on the brink of this exciting, new era of end-user data access. The other was to learn from the database administration managers the directions in which their organizations are heading, in this context.
