I have a question about manipulating data in a database. I was looking at a job posting for a Data Warehouse analyst. I noticed it mentioned unix scripting is a must. Now I have worked with engineers and watched them modify/retrieve data using unix and SQL, but when I showed them that you can easily access the data using Aqua data studio, oracle SQL plus, they seem to think it is a lot easier that way.
My question, what is the advantage of using unix to drill into the data? If I don't learn unix will I never be a DBA that management needs?
