Database Best Practice

A "career in complexity" is another way of describing how a technologist uses overly complex or exotic practices without sound business requirements.

In the presence of such practices, new more impressionable DBAs may feel that this is what being a DBA is all about. In advanced cases an entire IT Department's reputation can be adversely affected.
