    He is really a recruiter. DBAs don't ever get downsized, right guys?

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    And there is no santa claus...

    Aren't all the jobs going overseas?

    When's the backlash going to happen?

    Is it starting now?

    By the way, what's the gig, or are you just fishing?

    You're kidding, right?

    Do yousubscribe to Information week, computer world, database trends, eweek..ect?

    It's everyone...

    The general thought is..."I can pay someone in bangalore 1/3 of what I pay someone in the states...I would be crazy to do so otherwise..."

    Problem is, you have no control over your data, time frames, quality...yada yada yada

    Hell, it's hard enough to keep'em in line when I can go over to their cube and bang on their head...

    Forget the language and cultural nuiances...

    Sure, some things work...but from (executive imposed) experience, outsourcing is a bust...

    Administer all Connections Academy databases. -- on call 24x7
    Develop and review stored procedures and tables to ensure optimal performance. -- Do all the work
    Ensure the safety of the data through backup and recovery plans. -- Prod DBA See #1
    Create stored procedures for recurring tasks. -- Duh
    Recommend, build and analyze all indexes. -- Know everything the developers do..
    Research data issues and propose/implement preventive actions. -- Data scrubs because the model isn't correct
    Implement and manage database security. -- Prod DBA..use connection pooling
    Assist application developers. -- do all the work yourself because it'll take to long to train them

    Sorry, Thursday was a tough day...

    Yes, it is happening to DBA's. I know because I have a "helper" in India. Unfortunately for me, most of the help is going to him, than me. Considering this guy has to work on his own during our night, you would think they would have at least tried to get a guy with some experience in SQL server.

    Just my 2 cents,

    Isn't it abit insensitive what u guys are talking about if u'r in the other person shoes?

    Aren't we all just earning a living at the end of the day?

    I'm not particularly on who side or what, but hey...Bill Gates got the idea of .NET from the people there.
