Secure and available data is crucial for a company's success, and so are the DBAs. All too often DBAs don't get the respect they deserve.

"If you are an exceptional DBA, or know of an exceptional DBA, I encourage you to participate in the Exceptional DBA Awards. Not only will it give you or some exceptional DBA some much-deserved recognition, it will also help to increase the awareness of the importance of the DBA role among the IT community."
