Case Studies

Our support services utilise a blend of local and offshore resources, enabling us to be local and better able to understand your application and requirements whilst minimising costs. This service allows customers to increase uptime, efficiency and level of automation of their Oracle applications, while significantly reducing costs and outages. Our process starts with an Audit of your application, to enable us to document and understand your application and needs. Then we can provide a support service against a service level agreement offering an agreed level of service against a fixed price, all of which is proven to help to eliminate your risk.

The Audit Process
  • Documents your systems
  • Examines Data Recovery, Back-Up and Security processes
  • Examines all aspects of system maintenance
Our DBA service then delivers:
  • Problem identification and specialist resolution
  • Escalation (if required) and management of issues with Oracle/Microsoft
  • Performance analysis and tuning
  • Hourly, daily, weekly and monthly checks
  • Reporting and resolving serious log messages
  • Rapid response emergency support for live databases

  • Increased Availability of Oracle
    With our Remote DBA support, you can be assured that your environment is being supported by a competent professional who is thoroughly familiar with your databases.
