At Atlas, we consider that there are several common factors within organizations that affect the number and level of expertise for best practice build-out. Requirements that determine the level of staffing and effort include:
- Frequency and amount of database changes occurring within the environment
- Number of databases managed and their propensity for growth
- Level of customer service required
- Complexity of the technological environment
- Frequency of staff turnover
- Type of automation and level of process efficiency
Initiating new database projects or simply maintaining your existing database environment, the role of managing databases can become overwhelming. Routinely performing database management best-practice assessments increases the predictability of future project work and enhances return on investment by optimizing the performance of new and existing databases. Some benefits of database management would be:
- Improved strategic use of corporate data.
- Reduced complexity of the organization’s information systems environment.
- Reduced data redundancy and inconsistency.
- Enhanced data integrity.
- Application-data independence.
- Improved security.
- Reduced application development and maintenance costs.
- Improved flexibility of information systems.
- Increased access and availability of data and information.
Atlas has practiced the best possible processes to reduce the risk of outages or performance delays while increasing overall operational efficiency of their clients.
