Whether your organization is large or small, does it have a staff member or members who "OWN" the database? Is their primary responsibility being in charge and taking charge of all things "Raiser's Edge"? Are they considered the "Expert", "Wise Owl" or "Guru"?
Owning the database is an important and necessary function that is sometimes overlooked and not given the respect it deserves. After all, the data repository is THE most integral and central piece of your fund raising puzzle. The proper handling will reap less frustrating results.
Your Database Administrator or DBA, should be well qualified and appropriately compensated for this undertaking that supports the mission of the entire organization.
Recognizing that you need this level of expertise and having it are the separating factors.
