Cloud computing and business intelligence have become key elements of companies’ digital transformation strategy, further enhancing the role of system administrators.

IT managers have the ability to access tools and resources to automate processes and make adjustments as needed. Data science. Another area that system administrators typically control is data science. This function focuses on translating the large volumes of available information known as Big Data. This data comes from all kinds of massive information sources and turns it into answers. They work in all types of businesses and industries with the goal of getting reliable answers to everyday problems. Database. Databases play a fundamental role in a business, since they have become a necessity for any software. In this sense, system administrators manage and maintain computerized databases, ensuring that they are secure and that they are up to date. Its main role in this area is to work to make them faster and easier to use, as well as to build systems so as not to lose data when something goes wrong.

Specialists of this profile usually have the main function of backing up computer files, implementing cryptographic protocols and security tools based on them, as well as creating and developing IT security and communication projects. Operating systems. Monitoring operating systems is one of the most common functions of system administrators. Its skills in this area range from computer equipment (hardware), programs (software), operating systems and computer networks, that is, communication between computers. Agile methodologies.
