Data Minister specialise in providing boosts of data administration expertise to organisations that may not need a permanent DBA, or need an extra pair of hands to design new, or enhance current database environments to be reliable, highly-available and performant.

  • Troubleshooting and solving SQL Server-related problems you may be experiencing.
  • One-off or regular review and elevation of the performance of your database environment.
  • Consolidating your current SQL Server installations to reduce licensing costs and maintenance overhead.
  • Automating processes that are currently performed manually.
  • Design and installation of new SQL Server environments.
  • Upgrade and migration of existing databases to new hardware, or cloud-based Azure environment.
  • Creating a monitoring and alerting solution for your SQL Server environment.
  • Supplementing or leading your current DBA team with day-to-day support, on a short-term or adhoc basis.
