Database Administration Services
The data stored in your organization’s databases is a critical resource for your people to thrive and survive. Customer records, work orders, sales invoices, employee data, vehicle tracking . . . whatever it is that makes your organization tick, if it’s stored in a database then it’s well worth your while to make sure that database is well designed and properly managed. Then you can take the next step and let your database do some real work for you. Can patterns of customer trouble calls indicate where you have an infrastructure problem? Perhaps trends in your sales records can help you pinpoint the next big thing a step or two ahead of your competition? The specifics will vary from company to company and industry to industry, but your organization’s data can help propel you from confusion to clarity if you apply the right tools to your database.
When working on a data-centric project, we draw on our skill, experience, and knowledge to design a rock-solid database that is scalable, robust, and reliable. We understand that an application has to do more than just look good. It has to have data integrity right at the core of its being.
Whether you are running your database on-premises, or in the cloud, or both, we can give your database environment:
- a good backup strategy
- a disaster recovery plan
- regular health checks
- routine maintenance
. . . all so you can have confidence in the availability and safety of your mission-critical data.
If you’ve already got your database server environment online, we can come alongside and help make sure it’s secure and running well. If you’re having problems with performance, capacity planning, or just figuring out what the heck is going on, we’d love the chance to take a look at your setup, isolate the root causes of your issues, and work to mitigate against them.

A large database can be a bit like a murky pond . . . you know there’s a vast harvest of fish, or critical information, lurking below the surface, but it’s tough to see where it is, and tougher to get it out! A good Business Intelligence system can give your end users clear and direct visibility to the rich information that your database has to offer.
