It’s no secret in the IT industry that data has become a precious commodity and the role of database administrator is becoming one of ever-growing significance. So why delegate the mundane and time-consuming tasks of managing a database to your administrator when they should be focusing on improving your application?
Managed Service Providers like Connectria can provide a number of benefits to companies looking to expand or manage an ever-changing database environment. The 3 key areas in which database administrators can benefit from an MSP are time, experience, and stress.
By using an MSP, the database administrator will have time to work on tasks related to improving the application rather than routine tasks related to managing the database. The database administrator will not need to concern themselves with the database operation itself. Instead, the management of backups, performance, and security of the database can be offloaded to experienced staff with little or no interaction from the database administrator.
The world of database administration has expanded so much in recent years that database administrators everywhere are struggling to keep up with all the latest trends. Through the availability of more resources than the average company, MSPs can provide expertise in areas outside of a company’s current knowledge base.
Database managed services can provide a level of much needed stress relief, knowing that your data is protected. If there is an error at any time, the MSP is the first line of defense against any encountered problems. This also relieves the database administrator from those late night phone calls that the database is unresponsive.
A competent managed service provider should be considered an extension of your IT department, not as an outsourced enemy. For less than the cost of a database administrator, you can provide an extension to your organization that will offer resources, experiences, and peace of mind.
