WE'RE HAPPY TO HELP.

We understand that time and expertise is at a premium. Our highly-skilled team is ready to help you as much (or as little) as you need us.

Sometimes our customers don’t have the time or in-house resources to execute on the optimizations recommended by Delta Bravo. If that’s the case, we provide assistance from our team of experts in flexible models designed to be quick and cost-effective. Here are some of the ways we help.


SQL Server Pulse Report

Targeted two-week remote engagement providing analysis and Best Practices for SQL Server performance, security, compliance and capacity planning. Analysis deliverable includes:

Application Behavior and Trends
    Monitor SQL environment performance, security and capacity trends for one week

Best Practice Config and Performance Optimization
    Identify and document gaps vs. Best Practice SQL Server configuration
    Identify immediate performance optimization opportunities

Best Practice Security and Compliance Risk Analysis
    Identify immediate security risks and provide steps for remediation
    If applicable, provide database compliance guidance for standards ranging from PCI, SOX, HIPAA, DoD STIGs and more

Best Practice Maintenance recommendations
    Align current maintenance practices to recommended Best Practices

Resource and Capacity forecast
    Document resource growth trends, submit forecast analysis
    Identify and document specific processes driving Database growth
    Recommendations for scalability, capacity planning


Cloud Roadmap

Remote engagement providing analysis and Best Practices for cloud workload management, security and ongoing capacity and cost control. Analysis deliverable includes:

Workload and I/O Analysis
    Capture target application workloads to identify current state performance requirements
    Document resource growth trends over 7 day period
    Establish initial target DTU/DWU levels to match performance expectations of source environment

Identify Pre-migration Workload Optimization opportunities
    Identify optimizations that will improve performance and reduce resource use in current environment, potentially reducing cost and performance requirements for target cloud environment

Cloud Readiness and Governance
    Architectural Recommendations
    Identify any gaps between on-premise data requirements and Azure cloud capabilities

Best Practice Security and Compliance Alignment
    Identify any gaps between on-premise data security and compliance requirements and Azure cloud capabilities

Best Practice Maintenance recommendations
    Align current maintenance practices to recommended Best Practices for cloud database environments



Performance Tuning

We analyze the full technology stack and ensure the most effective use of infrastructure resources, whether they’re on premise or in the cloud. The difference between a badly designed query (stored procedure, view or a function) and a well designed one can be as significant as a few seconds of execution time. If that same query is being executed thousands of times an hour, just a small dose of performance tuning can make a sluggish server literally come to life.

Typical areas covered include:

    Application throughput & latency
    Query structure
    Infrastructure analysis
    Scaling (Vertical/Horizontal)
    Business objectives vs. Technology capabilities


Scalability and Capacity

Need your app to handle more users and transactions without breaking the bank?

Scaling a SQL Server environment across multiple systems can be a difficult and complicated project, involving partitioned databases, federation and more. Delta Bravo can help you:

    Deploy minimally invasive and affordable tactics to improve scalability: tuning existing queries, schema, and server settings
    Scale upwards, using big hardware, big tables, and lots of queries running on a single instance, as well as outwards, leveraging availability groups, sharding and more


Database security and compliance has traditionally been a second-class citizen in the security world. Hackers and regulators are both realizing this, enacting complex attacks and standards in a high-stakes, ever-evolving battle. We use a combination of Delta Bravo AI and our skilled data experts to:

    Identify immediate security risks and provide steps for remediation
    If applicable, provide database compliance guidance for standards ranging from PCI, SOX, HIPAA, DoD STIGs and more
    Work with your internal security and change control boards to implement approved recommendations within your process

Several of our customers are just now exploring how AI and Machine Learning can benefit their business- from predictive maintenance use cases to operational forecasting and more. If this is something you’re interested in, we can have a POC running within 30 days. We’ll work with you to:

    Identify the data points that best fit into AI and Machine Learning models
    Develop models for relationships, influence, patterns and predictions
    Define visual presentation of desired data objects
    Stream data into Delta Bravo AI and deliver custom UIs, reports and alerts for customer data
    Handle overall management of your custom AI/Machine Learning application
