A bad day for DBAs: MIT boffins are replacing you with a mere spreadsheet


I can't see any reason for this reporting tool to upset any DBA at all.I mean even MS Access had a similar tool, and DBAs still worked on real DBs.

DBAs and DB designers (often the same person) will always be needed to design and optimise a DB. And all of the other administrative tasks that need doing.

Perhaps this tool will give more DBAs employment fixing the damn stupid stuff that the users built (in the looses possible sense of the word) so that it can perform provably correct and reliably.

Still what do I care? A few more months and I'll be a lazy arsed retiree.
