Re: What qualities should a TD-DBA possess?

A Teradata DBA should have the following skills:

(a) Sound understanding of Teradata Architecture.

(b) Efficient grasp on Teradata SQL & Advanced SQL.

(c) System Monitoring Knowledge.

(d) Data Modelling Skills.

(e) Script Development/Automation Skills.

(f) Query Optimization knowledge and experience.

(g) Understanding of Optimizer's oriented concepts like Skewness, Spool Usage etc. (Query Explain Plan Understandability).

Besides these above skills, a Teradata DBA should have eloquent communication skills as mostly DBAs need to explain Technical concepts to non-Technical guys like Manager, ETL associates etc.

I happen to attend a training by one of the teradata professional named Manohar in Nov'12, he takes online batches every month. I would say it was a very good decision on my part to join that training, not only I learnt alot, but also I perform very well at interviews and my job.

 

 

He teaches Developer and Admin tracks both, I happen to the developer track only. He also teaches case studies which bascially prepares you for real time applications. I would recommend anyone to join his classes, worth spending time and money !!
