One of the facets of the explosion of end user computing is the
increased use of databases in corporations, especially at department and
individual level. Many businesses have created a special group of front-end
liaison staff to assist end users in accomplishing their computing efforts. This
study sought to obtain information about what businesses view as their
database expertise requirements for MIS staff who work as end users liaisons.
In addition, this study sought to determine information on what is currently
taught about database in university business programs.
