Performance Tuning

Are there known performance problems lurking within your supported applications? Do you want to do a proactive performance analysis to catch performance issues before customers report them to you?

Your database development and operations staff need the tools to correct current performance issues within your application, as well as a deep understanding of how to avoid those issues in the future.

How we deliver:

  • Discussions with development and operations staff to understand current performance pain points.
  • Deep analysis of data platform codebase to uncover coding anti-patterns and design issues.
  • Review of supporting infrastructure and recommendations, as needed, to help hardware and software work together for optimal performance.

Oil and Gas Company Case Study

An independent oil and gas company focused on the acquisition, exploitation, development and production of oil and gas properties was struggling with platform architecture for their growing data volumes. Business data is used to optimize oil production costs, which translates into greater margins and increased profitability. ETL processes had slowed considerably, which hindered the ability to fully utilize data. With the current data volume, a number of issues were causing concern, including SQL Server Analysis Services processing running longer than expected; SQL Server Integration Services executing longer than expected; and exception handling and logging not consistently applied to SSIS packages. Expected data growth and acquisitions would soon be causing bottlenecks with both manpower and computing capabilities.
