by the time 2010 rolls around I will be on FULL social Security.

The numbers were not given but the percentages were. 66% increase in the DBA's and 25% of the workforce will be over 55. Is that 25% of the 66% that are DBA's or is it 66% of the 25% that are DBA's?

years old."

Well, I don't know about that, but one of those old fogies is right here!!

The META Group has released a study that forecasts increased demand for DBAs
in the future. They quote the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor
Statistics that forecasts a 66% increase in DBAs by 2010. The two factors
that META feels will increase demand are:

  1. Increased use of DW
  2. Aging workforce They estimate that by 2010, a quarter of the IT workforce will be over 55 years old. The new features to make databases self-managing will only help with lower value labor intensive tasks such as schema changes and performance tuning, not with higher value skills such as design and troubleshooting.
