SQL Server consulting for quick pain relief.
You’re frustrated with a slow, unreliable Microsoft SQL Server. You’re tired of hearing conflicting advice and watching team members point fingers at each other. Is it a storage problem? A code problem? A database problem? You just want clear answers. You’ve got a great team – but they just need some guidance to get back on track.
Our 3-day SQL Critical Care® gets everyone on the same page and brings you permanent pain relief for $6,995. (Not that urgent of an emergency? Check out our mentoring offering, SQL ConstantCare®.)
On day 1, we walk through your server together. We start a WebEx session with your senior sysadmin or DBA, lead developer, and a business stakeholder. We show you what’s going on, training you as we go, showing you what we’re looking at – we want you to be able to repeat this process on more of your own servers. It’s a read-only process that we’ve used across hundreds of clients around the world, without any need for VPN logins.
On day 2, we write the findings. You go back to work while our team analyzes Day 1’s data. We write a clear, actionable set of tasks for you to get permanent pain relief. You can see samples of ’em below.
On day 3, we train your team. The moment of truth: we get back together to go through the findings in detail, showing you exactly why the SQL Server isn’t behaving the way you’d expect, and how to get the pain relief you want. It’s a mix of consulting and training: we’re showing you exactly what you need to do, and explaining why it’ll make a difference. You’re then empowered to relieve SQL Server pains on your own – without expensive prescriptions for ongoing consulting.
We mentor and train your team for 3 months. The engagement includes SQL ConstantCare® for up to 10 members of your team. They send us followup diagnostic data about your server, and we give you weekly email advice on what we’d do to make it faster and more reliable. Plus, they get access to our online training library with dozens of hours of in-depth tutorials on database administration and performance tuning. We assign specific homework modules that focus on the pains you’re facing, and your team just keeps getting better. That’s a $2,850 value just by itself.
