MyDBA is a recognised leader in helping businesses reduce their Microsoft SQL Server licensing and operational costs.
Our innovative CUTDown cost reduction methodology utilizes automated tools and an expert team to maximize cost reductions whilst also improving performance, availability and security at the same time.
Cost reductions of 50% or more are common in previously un-optimized environments, and we can also be retained on an on-going basis to ensure costs do not increase unexpectedly in future.
A unique part of MyDBA's service is our willingness to base fees on a share of the savings the client makes, whether software, hardware or outsourced service costs. With this approach MyDBA shares the risk of the project and ensures a clear ROI for the client. Other pricing models are offered if this "Savings Share" model does not suit, including T&M engagements.
Requirements and scope gathering
An initial, no obligation workshop is conducted with you to discuss our cost optimization process and define engagement scope.
Statement of Work
Based on initial scope gathering, an estimated Statement of Work is sent to you.
Collection of current inventory and costs
An inventory of your existing infrastructure and software licensing is documented including operational and license costs.
Installation and configuration of MyDBA's "SQLBench" monitoring and telemetry capture platform, which is left running for a period defined in the initial scope.
Our experts and analytical software identify optimization opportunities, based on collected telemetry
We provide you with a written set of recommendations, with itemised cost savings.
Meet and review
We meet to review and discuss our recommendations and agree upon which will be implemented.
You can implement our recommendattions entirely yourself, or we can perform the implementation with you or entirely for you.
We offer two engagement options for our Cost Optimization service. You can choose between simple "Time & Materials" (daily rate) or "Savings Share" options. In our "Savings Share" engagement model, we charge you a percentage of the differential between your current costs and the costs saved from our engagement.
With this approach MyDBA shares the risk of the project and ensures a clear ROI for the client. After initially quantifying your existing costs and making recommendations to reduce costs, we charge a percentage of the savings. In other words, we only earn if you save.
If you enter a Service Level Agreement for database support services, cost optimization is included as a standard service along with monitoring and regular review.
Traditional Time & Materials engagements are also offered and may be more appealing if it seems apparent to you that a large savings in cost is likely to be achieved.
