The Database Engine architect decides the technology used for the data storage systems, and coordinates the interactions and interoperability between data-driven systems and Web sites within the enterprise. The Database Engine architect is a solution-level decision maker who provides vision and scope to data-driven projects, and has job titles such as Data Architect or Database Architect.
