We’re so over winter….bring on spring! We all look forward to the lighter, brighter evenings and warm spring sunshine and not forgetting the all-important time off work, but what if your organisation has just one or two DBAs? Managing holiday cover can be difficult and stressful. We all know how vital it is that our business critical databases are kept running and we’re able to give customers the high levels of support they depend on. However, this can be a challenge when DBAs are in short supply, particularly so if your DBA team is small and provides 24/7 cover.
Sound familiar? If your organisation requires extra IT skills quickly to cover leave then you are not alone. This is one of the most common resourcing challenges that we see our customers facing on a day-to-day basis. That’s one of the reasons why we introduced our Consultancy on Demand service, to enable customers to gain access to skilled DBAs at short notice when they need that little bit of extra support.
With a Consultancy on Demand contract you can purchase a block of hours and allocate them to be used throughout the year. Our specially designed, highly flexible service enables organisations to access top DB2 talent when needed without having to take out a support contract. Simply purchase a block of 20, 50 or 100 hours which can be used over a 12 month period for any type of DB2 related work including adhoc support, consultancy, project work or training. Gaining access to DB2 support and giving your DBA a well-earned holiday couldn’t be easier!
