Administration of the Oracle database management system (DBMS) software environment and of the server systems on which the DBMS runs is one of the primary tasks required of database administrators. While it is true that the hardware and software platforms on which the DBMS runs have become increasingly complex, as has the database software itself, the capabilities provided by the Oracle database have correspondingly become more sophisticated.
