WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JUNE 16-22, 2021 UCW 15 Some people may think the world runs on Dunkin' when in fact, it runs on data! You may think money makes the world go around when actually, data makes the money that makes the world go around. Have you ever heard the say- ing, "Behind every great man, there's a great woman"? There is a line in a Beyoncé song that says, "I hear you be the block but I'm the lights that keep the streets on." Money is that "great man that is the block." And data is that "great woman that keeps the street lights on!" Data is changing the face of the world in many ways. From our devices tracking our every move to artificial intelligence, data is at the root of it all. Businesses thrive on data to help improve processes, save money and maxi- mize profits. Decision-makers rely on data to help make key decisions on business practices and processes. Data helps find solutions to pro- blems that are as close to predicting the future as humanly possible. Data helps businesses be extremely strategic in their approaches to success. Data is extremely important. It molds everything we do so it's vital that it is mana- ged properly, kept secure and accessible immediately. The Information Technolog y Database Management curriculum program at Fayetteville Technical Community College pre- pares graduates for this purpose. Course work includes the development of a student's ability to understand the role of databases and database management systems within the field of Information Technolog y, to demonstrate knowledge of SQL data definition and SQL, to develop queries to extract informa- tion from large databases, and to implement a database solution in the area of Information Technolog y. Graduates understand the com- ponents of how information support systems and services work and are able to create, store, communicate, exchange and use information to solve technical issues related to database admi- nistration. Graduates should qualif y for employment in entry-level positions within the database administration field providing support to data- base administrators wherever reliance is on computer systems to design and management information. The program will incorporate the competencies of industry-recognized certifica- tion exams. As the "keeper of data," you will be respon- sible for ensuring the database is functioning proper, secure and is available to pertinent users. You are also responsible for ensuring that necessary backup and recovery plans are in place, if a database should suffer loss. You should be familiar with and support the diffe- rent technologies that are used for a database to function at its optimal level, while providing support to data managers. The duties of some systems administrator technicians include managing database envi- ronments as well as planning, implementing, configuring, and administering various data- base managements systems. They are also required to implement, configure, administer and secure database applications. Data is a fast growing, highly lucrative field. FTCC will prepare you for what's needed to enter the field of data. Sign up to take classes today. Fall classes begin Aug. 16.
