Protecting Your Investment in Databases

Our consultants and contractors have many years of hands-on experience working with various SQL Server databases, in all kinds of environments: onsite, remote, and cloud databases! We know and understand the value that a database has for your organization - it likely contains data that may be quite vital to how well you can carry out your mission, so our consultants treat every database we work on with the same respect, confidentiality and care as you would expect your own employees to take with your data. Not only that, we are keenly aware that database changes have the potential for causing disruption to users and customers, so our policy is to always commit changes in a manner that allows us to roll back a change quickly without loss of data. At the same time, our goal is to ensure that you can capture better value for your data than you did in the past, enabling you to achieve your objectives and targeted goals sooner than otherwise.

Adding Value Through Improved Database Performance

Our work often requires us to take a close look at the architecture of a database, including low level objects within the database such as in-memory tables, stored procedures and their triggers, as well as any user defined functions therein. This includes drilling down to data types within individual fields in tables, and their relationships to other tables, and properties such as indexing and keys, as we know that design decisions on such properties can have a massive impact on query execution times. Furthermore, the context within which the database is being used can have a significant effect on its performance as well, so we always pay attention to how close the data is to its users in terms of the environment the database is housed in, whether it is used to drive a web app or a dynamic website, as well as the server and network layers that it is part of. All of this work is part of our philosophy in delivering top quality database service to your organization.

Better databases through better functionality

Often clients ask us to achieve certain capabilities that did not previously exist in a database, usually in an effort to boost operational efficiency, or new reports for users and management, as well as better monitoring and operational readiness and awareness of the changing data landscape. Our consultants are able to work with your team to prioritize tasks and set goals together to ensure that any new functionality added into the database or its surrounding app architecture meets your requirements. As part of that process, our consultants can work with you on many facets of the project, including the ones listed below:

  • Data analysis including sources of the data and potential gaps in the data.
  • Technical requirements and write-up of specifications for the requested functionality.
  • Mapping out a project plan that adheres to established SDLC principles to develop the new functionality on time and on budget.
  • Impact analysis of the proposed changes and feasibility studies as needed to address concerns of affected stakeholders.
  • Using agile or waterfall development methodologies, or possibly a combination thereof, to ensure that the changes to the database or its build-out will result in steady and measurable progress to achieve the milestones laid out in the project plan.
  • Dev testing and user acceptance testing (UAT) to ensure that the new functionality added to the database meets technical requirements and expectations of users.
  • Our consultants will work with your team to monitor the performance of the database and its ecosystem after the rollout of the new functionality to ensure that it is operating at or above expectations.
  • We always seek rapid remediation of regressions, defects, or unexpected results, if any are discovered after the project is finished. Our goal is to ensure success in every database project, so if something unexpected occurs, we are always ready to jump back in to help!
