#4 Lack of skills in-house
In the fourth instalment of our “Top Five Reasons for Choosing Remote Database Support” blog series we look at DBA skills.
We work with organisations who do not have any DB2 skills in-house and organisations who have skills in-house but access to those skills is limited.
Some organisations may have inherited DB2 systems through expansion or acquisition and do not have the skills in-house to support it. Whilst their own IT team may be able to cope for a while, if any real issues come up, a support organisation with DB2 expertise will be needed.
We have also seen customers facing the need to replace a DBA quickly but who have struggled to find a new individual with the required level of skills. Bringing in a support organisation is a useful way to plug this gap fast with the assurance that you will be getting the highest level of DB2 skills.
