Data Platform Modernisation


Upgrading the database technology is the first step, and it's a crucial one. It is vital your database is optimised, and updating it to an improved version can massively improve the process.


Instead of having separate physical servers for each project – with their own hardware, databases and software, and their own individual support and maintenance overheads, you merge your solutions onto fewer machines.


Optimising the database to your business needs is the final piece of the puzzle. It results in better performance, recovery, provisioning and cost.

The Benefits of
Data Platform Modernisation

Reduced Number of SQL Server

Up to 80% less using MS SQL 2014 technology. There is no need to have dedicated servers for specific applications.

Instant Recovery with near minutes RPO/RTO's

Optimised and fully testable recovery for individual databases (and therefore line of business services)

Reduced Licensing Spending

By consolidating, you don’t buy as many SQL Servers as you previously did, consequently reducing your licensing spend.

Reduced Infrastructure Spend

You will use less rack space, fewer servers and storage and fewer Virtualisation / Network / Datacentre costs.

Lower Support / DBA Costs

With a standardised environment and tech, you’ll need fewer DBA’s with more automated and optimised processes for maintenance.

Faster Provisioning

Deploy databases in a quicker and more manageable way

You can significantly improve the technical performance of your business workloads by moving into Microsoft Azure. However, businesses new to cloud may not take steps to address waste and inefficiencies that can be introduced into cloud deployments.

Azure Managed Migration Proof of Concept

For companies new to cloud, knowing where and how to start your migration can prove difficult. Even if you already have experience of some cloud offerings, you may not have considered the benefits of Microsoft Azure for your estate.

Azure & OCI Interconnect

Oracle and Microsoft have recognised that most organisations run both workloads, and that combined with the general shift to Public Cloud has left many organisations trying to understand how they would span a multi-cloud approach.

Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery services can help protect your estate in case of disaster, and with our expert team, you can be sure your data is in safe hands.
