The old argument between Programmer and DBA

Within my work experience, there is the “old argument” between DBA and programmer. The programmer does not always understands why the DBA would not give him

permissions for executions or DML operations in the DB (INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE) .

The DBA, as a data protector, tries to do his best in protecting the database, and the programmer from the other hand wants

an access to the db, as he wants to develop new stuf and writing some T_SQL with no help from the DBA. I have to say, that although the DBA does and really wants to help the

programmer, main part of his job is to protect the data and manage permissions.

I would say, that the best solution is to give the programmer a way to work in front of the DB, but on the other hand not to give the programmer a SYSADMIN role 🙂
