Oracle is one of the most important companies in the technology industry, thanks to its database solutions that adapt to the needs of any company, be it small, medium or large. Oracle databases are especially useful if your company handles large volumes of data and you need a solid and reliable system, with the support that provides support whenever you need it.
“Oracle Database is the first database designed for enterprise grid computing, the most flexible and cost-effective way to manage information and applications. Enterprise grid computing creates large storage pools and industry-standard modular servers,” the same company explained in its documentation.
With this architecture, “each new system can be rapidly provisioned from the pool of components. There is no need for peak workloads, because capacity can be easily added or reallocated from resource pools as needed", added in the post.
Today information is power, that has been made clear to companies. With data, they can improve their business strategies, enhance the user experience, and improve their overall productivity, which is why an efficient and effective database is a must. And, with this, it is also essential to have a good database developer by your side.
According to an article published on the Oracle blog, the basic responsibilities of an Oracle database developer are creating databases and enhancing existing databases. In general, its role is to "improve business efficiency by improving the way organizations use their data".
“The role includes developing database code to perform specific tasks, for example, data retrieval for reports; create, update and delete data as required by a particular application”, they added in the same blog post.
As we've been talking about, a database developer can design or modify databases, develop new database applications, and "convert legacy applications to work with a particular database configuration".
Another important role of Oracle database developers is to ensure that projects comply with all applicable database rules. They can also make decisions related to appropriate database languages and technologies.
“Applications and databases are key assets for all lines of business. Typical applications and responsibilities include ERP, CRM, IoT, analytics, industry-specific (eg, verticals), and DevOps”, Netapp commented on the importance of this profile in companies.
