In these economic times, it's important to know where you stand in your occupation and where new opportunities might avail themselves to you.
From time to time, it's wise to review industry data to see how your profession is trending when it comes to salary and job requirements. Doing so will help you ensure that you're on the right path to making the most of your career.
According to a recent study featured on Salary.com, salaries for Oracle database administrators depend on a number of factors:
While Oracle Database administrators skills change depending on your job and expertise, many are responsible for administering, maintaining, developing and implementing policies and procedures. They're also responsible for ensuring the security and integrity of the company’s Oracle Database. They implement data models and database designs, data access and table maintenance codes, resolve Oracle Database performance issues, database capacity issues, replication and other distributed data issues.

If you're like many people in the modern day workplace, you're looking for ways to grow your knowledge, challenge yourself, become a greater asset to your company, make yourself more marketable and improve your job satisfaction. Many people are looking for ways to stand out from the crowd by possessing a unique set of valuable skills that will warrant higher pay.
In the IT world, possessing Oracle Solaris System Administration skills can be that key differentiator to increase your earning potential.
IT Managers often tell me that they have a hard time finding qualified Oracle Solaris System Administrators. These managers need people with a depth of knowledge to manage their infrastructure, but there aren’t enough highly qualified people to fill those roles. Since the most business critical operations are running on Oracle Solaris, it's important to employ people who are experts in administering those systems. Furthermore, these in demand technologists tend to be engaged in a more comprehensive part of the IT story within their businesses. And their advanced skills are rewarded with higher pay.
Oracle Solaris System Administrators, on average, are on a substantially higher pay scale than other System Administration positions. They also tend to have a high job satisfaction rate. As the technologies available in Oracle Solaris continue to advance, their skills allow them to work on challenging projects that expand well beyond the common daily system administration tasks.
Whether you're new to Solaris and want to work your way to become a senior level administrator, or you're an experienced System Administrator looking to move into Oracle Solaris, Oracle University offers courses to get you there. You can also invest in earning an Oracle Solaris System Administrator Certification to validate your skills and prove to employers you have the knowledge and skills they need.
