A DSP Oracle Managed Service consists of proactively monitoring your database environment on a 24x7x365 basis, which ensures that your estate is optimised and secure. Whether your Oracle database is on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment, we have a team of award-winning certified Oracle DBAs who have the expertise and experience to make sure your database is performing at the highest level.


Here are the top 10 benefits of an Oracle Managed Service

1. Reduced Costs

Cost is often the main driver behind a switch to DSP. Outsourcing to DSP saves an average of 40-70% in IT costs. The opportunity cost is therefore considerable; imagine the investments you could make with the savings, which could in turn boost your business' competitiveness.

2. Access to some of the best DBAs in the industry

Ordinarily, companies have 1 DBA - with DSP you'll have a whole team of fully certified DBAs. This breadth of skill is considerably beneficial as knowledge can be shared across the team. If your database has an issue, we like to think one of our DBAs has solved the same problem before!

3. Improved Database Reliability & Performance

DSP guarantee peace of mind. With our team of certified DBAs monitoring your environment 24x7x365 you’ll never have to worry about sickness, holiday or emergency cover again, which will allow you to focus on innovation and the growth of your business rather than keeping the lights on.

4. Improved Security

Our Oracle Managed Services can include our 'next-generation' database health checks which automatically run depending on business requirements (weekly, monthly or quarterly, etc.). Combined with machine learning, our health checks boost your business's security as it means your database environment is regularly checked and always optimised.

5. Preventative Analytics

At DSP we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure, and our DBAs work to that mantra. Our next-generation preventative analytics can ensure your environment is always optimised and greatly reduce the risk of downtime.

6. Stringent SLAs

At DSP-Explorer we take support very seriously and therefore we continuously monitor the performance of our services, which enables us to provide contractual guarantees with regard to the level of service. Book a meeting with an Account Director to understand our SLAs further.

7. Peace of mind

With DSP you can rest easy knowing that your environment is being supported by the UK’s largest independent Oracle Partner. We are the only Oracle Partner in the UK with expertise in Oracle Managed Services and we are also proud to be Oracle Digital Partner of the Year 2020. If our credentials don’t give you peace of mind, maybe our customer case studies or testimonials will.

8. Removal of the 'HR headache'

An Oracle Managed Service removes a lot of HR headaches. Firstly, it removes the recruitment process which we all know can be a lengthy and costly experience. Secondly, it removes the knowledge loss when an internal DBA leaves. Finally, it also removes the requirement to find cover for holiday, sickness or emergency leave.

9. Seamless onboarding service

We are proud to offer a seamless onboarding service, with a dedicated onboarding team in place to ensure a smooth and secure process. This allows you to continue business as usual while we take the reigns of your database environment. You'll also have a dedicated, experienced Account Director who will be your main point of contact during your contract with DSP.

10. Flexible Support Options

We understand that every business has its own unique requirements, and DSP offers flexible contacts to cover those needs. Whether you need support 24x7, just through the night, or to bolster your current DBA team in times of need, DSP can support you.
