FAQ
I can remember as far back as version 7.3 where Oracle
was touting that
"you won't need a DBA for our new database".  It
hasn't happened yet,
has it?  Oh yes, it's easier, but we're still
here!

And besides, what were they offering in the cold
call?  Replacing your
DBAs with their DBAs.  At (probably) twice the
price.  Outsourcing Lives!

Just my $0.02 worth.

Very
stupid thing to do by Oracle, considering the fact that many Oracle purchasing
decisions are made by Oracle DBAs. To shut us out like that will most
certainly have an effect on Oracle Sales. Hell, you don't need me anymore?
I'll switch political sides and jump the ship to IBM, or
Microsoft...

Far
as their "superior" i-dba team, I sure hope those are different people from
the ones you get on first line of Support...

Or maybe we should all become Oracle salesmen
(saleswomen)....

My boss just received a cold call from Oracle that
he let me listen in on.  They have a new push on for their i-dba support
package.  For just a little more money (they did not define little), "we
will replace your dba's with our superior support team that will monitor your
database 24x7 and proactively eliminate problems.  This will allow you to
redesign you office to offload these cumbersome DBA tasks and allow your
workers to do other things.  You will never have another database
problem."   I felt good when my boss indicated that we had no base
problems but based on this, I guess we will have to become sqlserver DBAs or
developers...    :)
Ahh, Friday, wonderful Friday,  it seems like
you've been away all week...
