Leong-Hong, Belkis; Marron, Beatrice
The concepts of data base administration, the role of the data base administrator (DBA), and computer software tools useful in data base administration are described in order to assist data base technologists and managers. A study of DBA's in the Federal Government is detailed in terms of the functions they perform, the software tools they use, the problems they have encountered, and advice they offer. Some guidelines are presented on what data base administration should do for management, and what management must do for their DBA's. Appendices include a bibliography and data base administration interview outlines. (Author/CMV)
