The net result is that the manager's job satisfaction is now determined in large part by the degree to which he is perceived and acts as an internal customer, evaluating and qbuyingq products for internal use and application. This fusion of customer and job satisfaction is currently critical to database managers whose job performance and satisfaction is determined by their satisfaction with the evaluation and selection of data systems. In other words, decision criteria involves not only the competency of products being reviewed, but also the degree to which each product generates or supports the job satisfaction of internal customers, which essentially is the focus of this research. The purpose of this research is to compare the degree of satisfaction of Oracle database administrators with the product performance of Windows and Linux platforms and to demonstrate the degree of job satisfaction each system offers each database manager as an internal customer.Statistical analysis of the data presented in the previous chapter rejected both null hypotheses. The first null hypothesisaThere is no difference in Oraclea#39;s performance on Windows compared to that of Linuxawas rejected. Data demonstratesanbsp;...
