Oracle DBaaS Market Expected to Boom – What All DBAs Need to Do to Prepare!

As the benefits of Database as a Service (DBaaS) extend beyond those of the "as-a-service" delivery mode, allowing access to a broad range of external data sources to power business processes and augment in-house systems of record, the DBaaS market is expected to grow rapidly in the following years.

Recent Findings Show that Major Growth is Expected in the DBaaS Space

  • According to 451research, with an expected enterprise adoption rate to reach over 70% in 2016, it has become clear organizations are making DBaaS a priority for their business plans.
  • According to MarketsandMarkets, the adoption is expected to grow steadily and shall have a persuasive existence across all the major verticals. Improved customer experience at lower cost, on a 'pay as you go' revenue model, will be the major 'pull' factor.
  • By 2017, the DaaS market share will increase to 29%, becoming the most important form of private cloud as Oracle Research states in a recent article.


As the migration to DBaaS becomes a “must have” for every enterprise that wants to stay ahead of the game, so is having the right skills to implement it within your organization to guarantee optimal results.

Which skills are needed to gain good results when migrating to DBaaS?

Database administrators still need to be trained in core administration skills when moving to the Oracle Cloud. They will need to understand:
  • The overall architecture of the Oracle Database Cloud,
  • How to migrate to the cloud,
  • How to create an administer an instance,
  • How to configure connections,
  • How to back up and recover databases in the cloud,
  • How to use Cloud DBA tools.

Database Administrators can struggle when transitioning to the Cloud when:

  • They are unfamiliar with overall capabilities provided,
  • They are not familiar with Cloud DBA Tools,
  • They don't know how to administer Oracle Database Cloud security measures,
  • They cannot maximize performance and scale the database environment,

Transitioning to the Cloud - a "Challenging Mission" - Not Anymore!

DBaaS represents a paradigm shift in IT, from merely “keeping the system up & running” to higher tuning and development work – helping customers move their businesses forward.

This type of role can be more rewarding and provides new opportunities. Moving to the Oracle Cloud requires new skills to fully understand all that is needed when performing Oracle Database administrator tasks in the Cloud.
