SQL Server Consultancy

Optimum Performances

We will always find the best SQL Server solution at the lowest cost. It doesn’t matter what you are looking for: experienced database administrators, an audit of your systems, performance improvements of your system, consolidation and migration of your databases, cloud software – hybrid or on-premises – an installation for a high availability or repairs after an emergency. Whatever you need, we make it happen.

 

Database administration

Our experienced database administrators will take good care of your SQL Server environment and make sure that it provides optimum performance. We look forward to being your trustworthy database wizards who guarantee that your systems function flawlessly, thanks to a solid design, optimum maintenance and an effective backup.

We not only provide excellent maintenance, but also take care of configuration optimisation, a high availability by means of clustering, replication and mirroring, extra protection and maintenance automation.

Whatever your question may be – your applications are too slow, you don’t have back-up schemes, you need a better availability or everything is just too much work – you can rely on our assistance in the short and long run.

Audit, health check and performance tuning

Our audit and diagnosis services perform a health check of your SQL Server environment to detect things before they turn into a problem. We check your systems thoroughly and draw up a detailed report with an overview of potential problems and an improvement plan, in which we explain our solutions.

The audit is unique, because it’s automised. Our own diagnosis software collects all information. This information is then analysed by our SQL Server wizards afterwards. Compared to a manual audit, this approach is faster and offers more detailed information.

We can help you with designing an optimum architecture before the development starts. Next to that, we assist you in setting up and tuning your system, improving your existing applications, and checking whether it is possible to optimise your hardware, software and your licences.

Consolidatie and migration

Companies consolidate, upgrade and migrate to reduce costs, make maintenance easier and cheaper, use new applications, and clear up their licences. We can help you with all your projects to upgrade, migrate and consolidate your SQL Server. You can rely on our extensive experience, proven approach and best practices to obtain an excellent result.

We migrate existing databases (Oracle, DB2, Sybase, Access, Teradata, etc.) to SQL Server, a hybrid or private cloud, a cloud on your own account or to the public Microsoft Azure cloud.

By consolidating your existing SQL Server databases to a new architecture, your scalability and performances increase, whereas the licence costs decrease. We often combine such projects with upgrades and migrations to reduce costs even more.

High availability and AlwaysOn

AlwaysOn is a standard component of the SQL Server Enterprise Edition that applies the integrated High Availability (HA) fast to a SQL Server environment. When the analysis of your needs reveals that you need an availability of 99,99%, then AlwaysOn will probably be the ideal solution for you.
In all other cases, we will analyse your situation and critical applications to advise you on the best High Availability solution. Together we will define the most interesting scenario at the lowest price.

As for Disaster Recovery (DR), you can also count on us to advise you on the most appropriate solution to meet your needs. A cloud solution for DR allows you to keep your recovery system in standby mode. Furthermore, this solution comes with a low price tag, because it’s based on a pay-per-use model.

ETL tuning

When your SQL Server Integration Services or your ETL processes (Extract, Transform and Load) become too complex or too time-consuming, you can appeal to us to simplify or fasten them. Our ETL experts will assist you in redefining your ETL code, your ETL processes and rewriting your Transact-SQL statements or SSIS procedures where needed.

Increasingly more companies now use real-time synchronisation between different data sets. Fluent ETL processes therefore are more important than ever. We gladly lend you a helping hand with this.

Our ETL tuning is always documented extensively. We thoroughly describe all elements of the ETL framework you use, how the processes function, and how you code is structured. After all, it’s important that future users of your SQL environment also understand how your system works.

Analysis Services tuning

A fast and flexible analysis depends on the SSAS models (SQL Server Analysis Services) on your data warehouse.

When you consider you the SSAS models too slow, their structure too complex, or when you think you need additional advanced calculations, then our business intelligence experts are the people you need.

Together with your analysts, our SSAS experts will go through your data models (Tabular or OLAP) and remove double codes, unnecessary details, missed loops, wrong hierarchic relations, incoherent standards, aggregation possibilities and so much more. All this will make sure that your analyses will speed up again.
