    Hi all,

    Currently i work as an application analyst, but wanted to either move into a DBA or a system admin role.

    I can either go for oracle dba or microsoft sys admin, which career path would be more in demand?

    Rgds,

    Honestly they are both in demand... you should go with what you prefer more...

    Sys admin may be a little more interesting in the long run. My friend is a DBA and it pays well but he finds it extremely boring after 10 years. I suppose it would depend on how much you like that type of stuff.
