Management of Database Systems Survey

I am a senior certified Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) Database Administrator who is examining how management of database systems can be improved for the database community, as part of my PhD study with The Open University. To proceed I need your help and the help of as many people as possible in the industry. We see a lot of discussion about new database engines, tools, features, the cloud, big data etc. but how do we administer and manage this ubiquitous landscape?

I need to know to what extent practices and procedures are utilised by the database community and what affects their adoption. Please help me with my research by completing this survey. It will take 15-20 minutes of your time and it is an in depth survey. There are no prizes for helping, just the satisfaction that you have helped the database community as a whole and of course my gratitude. Thank you very much for agreeing to participate in this survey.
