Franz Devantier joined the RDB Consulting team in July 2010. As an Oracle Database Administrator, Franz oversees 11 of our clients.
Franz has been an Oracle DBA since for over 12 years and has lots of experience working in the telecoms industry, most notably for Telkom and Vodacom. Before becoming a DBA, Franz worked as a C Programmer, which took him all over Africa.
On a daily basis, Franz goes to see clients and do health checks on their databases. Besides health checks, Franz also does research and makes recommendations on new technologies or systems that could better suite our clients’ needs. Franz is an Oracle certified professional (11g), an OCE Oracle Expert (RAC) and an Oracle Tuning Expert. He is also an OCP e-Business Suite DBA and he is currently working on his Sequel Server Certification.
What Franz enjoys most about working in the industry is the thrill of finding and fixing problems. Franz says he “gets a kick” out of working with databases and is usually brainstorming, thinking and devising new plans even when he’s not at work.
