A RACI Chart for Oracle Database Appliance

A responsibility assignment matrix, also known as RACI matrix describes the participation by various roles in completing tasks or deliverables for a project or business process. It is especially useful in clarifying roles and responsibilities in cross-functional/departmental projects and processes. RACI is an acronym derived from the four key responsibilities most typically used: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed.

Oracle Engineered Systems such as Oracle Database Appliance and Oracle Exadata are integrated systems that greatly simplify and redefine how systems’ deployments have traditionally been planned, executed and managed. Different organizations use different approaches to assign responsibilities in this new world of system management.

Customers and project managers sometimes ask for or want to build a RACI chart for Oracle Engineered Systems. Someone recently asked for one for Oracle Database Appliance. Each environment is different and assignment of roles and responsibilities is often a contentious topic. On one extreme, a single DBA or System Administrator can deploy and manage the entire system; while on the other traditional teams take their own well defined roles and responsibilities. A sample RACI chart for Oracle Database Appliance may look as follows. However, it is certainly up to you to define the roles and responsibilities as per your requirements in your environment. Build your own RACI chart for your environment and share your thoughts!
