Datavail and Guest Independent Research Firm Presents Webinar on A Managed Services Approach to Database Administration

Results Presented by Principal Analyst of Database Management Systems on Wed., March 12, 10 a.m. MDT

Broomfield, Colo. — March 10, 2014 — Datavail CEO Mark Perlstein and guest speaker Noel Yuhanna, principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., will present “Five Reasons to Consider a Managed Services Approach to Database Administration,” which will be held on Wed., March 12, at 10 a.m. MDT.

Based on a Datavail-commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting of US database administration (DBA) decision-makers which evaluated the viability of outsourcing DBA functions to third-party firms and on Forrester’s own market data, Yuhanna will explore trends of enterprises moving toward a managed services approach to database administration.

Other results of the study will be reviewed including:

  • Improved SLAs – in some cases, dramatically improved
  • Consistent 24×7 coverage
  • Deep expertise in areas where in-house staff needed assistance
  • Multi-platform expertise
  • Improved retention of on-staff DBAs

“With the explosion in the variety, velocity and volume of data and databases, coupled with the scarcity of DBA talent, the time is right to consider an alternative approach to managing databases,” Perlstein said.
