NoSQL Shouldn’t Mean NoDBA

Nick Heudecker (Gartner):

The results were largely what I expected, except for the respondent profile. Database administrators (DBAs) appear to be significantly underrepresented in the NoSQL space, representing only 5.5% of respondents

Question here is why is this happening? Keeping in mind the survey’s audience is “NoSQL adopters”, I’m wondering what combination of the following explains the results:

  1. DBAs see no value in NoSQL
  2. DBAs see no job security
  3. DBAs see a drop in their revenue with NoSQL
  4. DBAs are misinformed
  5. DBAs are change resistant (putting them in the later phases of adoption)

I’d go with a combination of 5 (explained mostly by 3) and 4.
