Your company only has application developers? They have designed and developed the database? Performance is struggling?
If this sounds familiar, it's because it's the most common scenario we encounter here at Kutech and why we're most commonly called in to help.
Nearly all application developers are taught basic SQL and database design when they learn to code, which is great. However, no-one is ever taught a product and each product handles code and design very differently. Microsoft SQL Server is no exception and both T-SQL code and database design need to be tailored to the product. Making some simple changes can drastically increase the performance and throughput of your database whilst lowering your running costs.
Companies will regularly find themselves growing, expanding, and in need of a little help.
Maybe you need a new data warehouse, a reporting platform, an upgrade to your existing SQL Server, or a high availability solution? These are all situations where the on-site DBA can struggle or where you may need a little extra help to achieve your goals, timescales, and knowing you're in safe hands every step of the way. We are more than happy to support any situation that may arise.
Are the current DBAs or Developers spending too much time on BAU tasks or morning checks?
BAU and morning checks can take up a good hour or more of your time each day, not including the time taken to then investigate and resolve any issues found. This can hinder your existing staff, limiting their ability to pursue other tasks and projects. We are more than happy to take the strain off your existing staff by taking control of your morning checks.
No DBA or SQL Developers
Have a SQL Server running in your estate which is out of control, yet you cannot justify a full time DBA and SQL Developer?
Many companies install and run a SQL Server but have no idea what to do with it after that. Therefore it sits and grows and gets out of control, sucking up resources and causing problems. Yet this does not justify a full time DBA let alone both a DBA and SQL Developer. This is where we can step in to help you out by providing just a few hours a week to keep you up and running smoothly. Our favourite service is when we effectively become your in-house DBA for a fraction of the cost of a permanent employee.
