Being a database professional isn't easy, but it can pay well. So says a survey of 503 members of the Independent Oracle Users Group conducted by Unisphere Research. Those surveyed included database administrators and IT managers as well as database developers and analysts. As the IOUG survey shows, certification and experience can go a long way toward making that extra buck.
