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.
And if you agree with us that it's time to change this, then please help us find 2010's Exceptional DBA Awards winner!
"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."
