The Database Administrator (DBA) in a Data Integration Solution is typically responsible for translating the logical model (i.e., the ERD) into a physical model for implementation in the chosen data storage technology, implementing the model, developing volume and capacity estimates, performance tuning, and general administration of the storage solution.  In many cases, the project DBA also has useful knowledge of existing source database systems. If the solution requires multiple data storage technologies (RDBMS & Hadoop for example) the project may require more than one DBA to cover the skillsets required.   The Project Manager and Data Warehouse Administrator are responsible for ensuring that the DBAs are working in concert toward a common solution.
