Maintaining the health of your application and your customers database environment is crucial.

Through our database health checks and performance tuning offerings, we can help maintain your customers environment to optimise uptime.


Through our award-winning managed services team, we can wrap your application in a fully managed service to support your customers environment & application on a 24x7x365 basis. Let DSP-Explorer keep the lights on, and you can focus on innovation and customer service!

Our Full Range of ISV Support and Services

Managed Cloud Services

A common goal for an ISV is to be able to operate a SaaS business model, meaning the ability to have their application cloud-ready and available on a subscription-based business model. At DSP-Explorer, we have a wealth of experience in making that goal a reality, moving your application into a public cloud environment and consequently transforming your business model while making your application more attractive to your end-users. DSP-Explorer can then manage your customers cloud environments and databases on a 24x7x365 basis.

Database Managed Services

Oracle & SQL Server Managed Services are a core service of DSP-Explorer. We are proud to have industry renown teams of fully certified, experienced DBAs. Our teams of award-winning DBAs will monitor your customers database environment on a 24x7x365 basis while abiding by strict SLAs.

This is a particularly popular service to our ISV customers as innovation is so important to you. By enrolling in an ISV Database Managed Service, it allows DSP-Explorer to focus on keeping your customers lights on and allows your internal IT team to focus on innovation and the growth of your business.

Oracle APEX

APEX (Application Express) is Oracle's leading RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool. It's a low-code development tool that is able to deliver state of the art applications, deployable on browsers, smartphones & tablets. Oracle APEX is a no-cost feature of the Oracle database and it also includes slick reporting capabilities and dashboards.

Many ISVs are turning to Oracle APEX to modernise current applications or build new apps. Others are migrating their Oracle Forms to APEX to improve UI and to ensure their application can run smoothly on any browser, unlike Oracle Forms.

Oracle Licensing

Oracle Licensing is known to be a complex, time consuming and often costly exercise, and even more so when it comes to ISVs! We offer a range of different Oracle Licensing services specifically for ISVs – as we understand that you want to use that time and money to improve your application, not dealing with Oracle licenses.

Whether you have an upcoming audit and want to ensure you’re compliant, or you need to purchase new licenses and want to ensure you have the most competitive price – speak to our team of licensing specialists today.

Database Health Checks

As you’re already aware, the performance of your application is heavily dependent on the performance of your customers database. If their database isn’t performing to its full potential, then neither is your application.

We offer Database Health Checks for ISVs on flexible terms, these can be wrapped into a managed service, or they can be executed on an ad-hoc basis as required. This is one of our most popular services with ISVs as it takes the worry about your customers database away and allows you to fully focus on your application.

Database Performance Tuning

Is your customers' database not performing optimally? Or has a recent database health check highlighted some performance issues? We offer performance tuning on an ad-hoc basis to your customers for when they suffer performance issues. It's a good feeling to have a database specialist at hand when performance issues strike!

Data Science Services

ISVs are in a unique position regarding the amount of data your application produces. However, research suggests only a very small proportion of business’s use that data to enhance their competitiveness and improve their business. At DSP-Explorer, we have an elite team of data scientists who can take your company’s data, apply machine learning and allow you to make data-driven decisions.

Advanced ISV Services

Application providers are at the core of our business, we have a dedicated ISV practice with a mission to help boost your business's growth. As well as all of the core services we have offered above, at DSP-Explorer, we like to go above and beyond, which is why we offer advanced services to select ISVs.

From quarterly strategic meetings with our CTO, to Google Ads crash courses from our Director Of Marketing. We'll even pitch your application to our current (300+) customer base! Or maybe you just need to be put in contact with the right person at Oracle or Microsoft?
