Data is now at the core of most businesses processes, as organisations increasingly use data-driven analytics and insights to manage and grow their businesses. This never-ending appetite for more data demands superior database management, systems, storage, and security – making Database Administration Services no longer just a nice to have.
What is Database Administration as a Service? (DBAaaS)
DBAaaS is an outsourced IT Service that manages the maintenance and optimisation of your database. The service inherently improves both cost and work efficiencies and enables businesses to spend more time on exploring data insights to develop their data driven business. This, combined with the ability to keep up to speed with the ever-changing database technology landscape, has created a growing need for expert Database Administration Services.
To have an effective data driven approach, a robust database administration capability is required to ensure optimal performance. For many organisations to function, databases need to be accessible 24x7x365, data must be compliant with the latest legal and procedural policies and importantly, be protected from potential cyber-attacks.
Our fully managed DBAaaS ensures that the day-to-day operations of your database administration is proactively monitored and supported to deliver optimal availability and performance. This service gives businesses the benefits of early detection and diagnosis of any issues, reducing risk and providing assurance and continuity for organisations.
Transputec partner with many clients to help deliver their data strategies and provide tailored support across all data technology systems and all platforms, including on premise, Private cloud and Public cloud (AWS, Azure).
