Peoplesoft DBA

I may have an opportunity for a Peoplesoft DBA job. I've done a wide gamut of Oracle DBA work at a major university for the last 10 years and am looking for a challenge. I don't know what skills this kind of position would require or allow one to develop. This is my main concern. Would it provide an opportunity for continued technical growth or would it require a narrow range or depth of skill to fill the role of implementation/production DBA? Any personal experience or suggestions as to how I might begin to answer this question?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I was a PeopleSoft DBA from 1/96 – 8/01. It was a great opportunity for me. PeopleSoft made some good strides through the years and seemed to have a stable ERP when my new parent company took us in a very different direction with Lawson software. If the company is small enough to let you play with the Web Servers and Apps Servers, it could be fun. If they want you to add users and datafiles and be CM cop, that would be a drag. My old company made a lot of customizations to the PeopleCode which made the upgrades challenging and time consuming > 9 months. On a more personal note – the PeopleSoft conferences were the best and I was able to take advantage of training opportunities in Vancouver, Chicago, Atlanta, etc…

    It all depends on what your responsibilities would be and what your personal goals are. I was an Oracle/Peoplesoft DBA from about 96-2000 at my previous job. I found myself doing more and more Peoplesoft administration and less DBA work. My goal was always more towards the DBA side rather than the ERP administration, so I moved on. I did like the Peoplesoft work, it was interesting and challenging, it just wasn't where I wanted to go with my career. HTH
