From DBA to DE: Becoming a Data Engineer

NYOUG Webinar on May 17, 2022 presented by Jim Czuprynski

Today’s Oracle DBA has acquired extremely valuable skills that actually make it simpler than ever to transition to the role of Data Engineer (DE). After all, who knows their application systems’ data – the myriad places where it’s stored, its relative quality and timeliness, and value to her IT organization – better than the DBA?

This session will:

  • Explain what the DE role often entails in forward-looking IT teams
  • Describe what current skills are needed to fulfill the role, and what upskilling is required
  • Discuss how best to maintain relevance for your career’s foreseeable future
