When it comes to Database Administration, we help with resource planning, solution ideas and project plans and we will always speak up if we think something should, or could, be done in a better way. Requirements might be driven by needing to fit into a specific budget, to optimise performance of the database, to fit project timelines or mitigate security implications. For us it’s not all about saying yes, but it’s about doing the right thing for your circumstance.
We work across a variety of platforms, including the cloud technology Azure, which creates very high availability within your environment. We can pinpoint performance issues in your infrastructure, as well as carry out in-memory optimisation.
We can also help you manage your business analytics, for example one of the products we regularly work with is the analytics tool PowerBI. We can work on the end to end development, ensuring you get the most power and insight from the data you have stored in your databases. How you warehouse your data and manage services such as OLAP, will influence how much value your business analytics delivers to the business.
We’ve often worked on large database migrations and upgrades, with one fashion designer retailer for example we had to reverse engineer a very old blackbox application and database environment in order to migrate them to a supported SQL version, and in the process, designed and added functionality that wasn’t previously possible.
We provide a lot of reassurance to clients, as they often know what they want to achieve, but may not have all the skills in house to know how to get there.
