Outsource database administrators to the Philippines


What is a database administrator?

A database administrator is responsible for the control and maintenance of an organisation’s database management systems. They plan, design and develop database management systems (DMS) that meet user requirements.

Database administrator duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising with internal managers and teams to design DMS that meet data needs and configuration requirements
  • Maintenance of DMS components such as architecture, tables, structure and naming conventions
  • Ensuring DMS is up-to-date by testing for bugs and resolving technical issues
  • Managing DMS data distribution and protocols
  • Maintaining optimum DMS performance and handling user controls.

These technical tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, requiring a high level of attention to detail. Organisations can free up their local web development teams time by sending these tasks to outsourced database administrators. This allows your onshore team to focus on higher value work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great database administrator?

Database administrators work with computers constantly to ensure the systematic management of security, storage and access surrounding large amounts of data. To do this efficiently, they have to have a good understanding of data security, cloud-based technologies and recovery procedures.

Outsourcing services recruit database administrators the same way an internal talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have working with database software to ensure the appropriate storage, organisation and management of data?
  • How familiar are you with database design and meeting user requirements?
  • What are your problem-solving and troubleshooting skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when speaking with IT project managers to design DMS?
  • What data security techniques and disaster recovery plans do you use?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What DMS are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in computer science, software engineering, electronic engineering or mathematics is desirable. Database administrators need to be fluent in technical programs such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's tech support requirements by hiring these specialists who can efficiently control DMS and manage user requirements accordingly.
