Microsoft 70-764 Badge SQL Consultant

Sequallity's lead SQL Consultant has 28 years of database experience and over 21 years of specialising in Microsoft SQL Server consultancy, help and training. Not only can we configure and maintain SQL Server correctly for your particular environment but we can also re-factor poorly performing T-SQL queries, add missing indexes and speed up your SQL Server if you have a performance issue. We've done this already at many client sites. We have been MCP certified since 2001.

DBA Consultant Services

Our SQL Server Consultants can help with any SQL Server related problem, however there are two distinct categories of Problem Resolution (like poor performance) or Project Work (like Upgrading and High Availability).  We have experience in the following:

  •                         Production DBA
                            Production SQL Server Development
                            Production On-Premise or Virtualised SQL Server Performance Tuning
                            Tuning SQL Server in the Cloud
                            Designing and Implementing High Availability and Disaster Recovery
                            SQL Server Health Checking from Hardware to Queries
                            On-premise SQL Server Migration or Migration to Azure SQL Database or Migration to AWS RDS/EC2
  •                         Creating Enterprise Reporting Solutions using SSRS or Power BI
                            Creating Business Intelligence data warehouses and cubes using SSAS, SSIS and SSRS
  •                         SQL Server Support and Remote DBA Services
                            Standard and bespoke training for SQL Server and Power BI, you can pick and mix!

Therefore, we can help from specifying hardware, SQL Server Health Checks to high availability, disaster recovery and database maintenance set-up help.  We can offer cover for your staff or boost your IT staff during SQL oriented projects.  We offer Advice, Implementation and Training.  Whatever you need.  We can work with any version from 6.0 upwards including 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, SQL Azure, SQL Azure VM, SQL Server AWS RDS or EC2 and now SQL Server 2019!

SQL Server Performance Tuning and Optimisation

is but one of our specialities. We understand how SQL Server works at a low level, thus allowing us to understand where problems occur. Full documentation will be produced for your system detailing observations and recommendations.

We look at hardware, server configuration, disk configuration, software configuration, database configuration, queries and index analysis too. We can implement or instruct your staff on making these changes.

The NHS and Tesco have benefited from our experience. One of our clients had a problematic 46 second query and after our tuning it dropped to 0.65 seconds. For a well-known high street retailer, we managed to get their 50-hour plus overnight process, which needed to complete nightly, down to 2 hours and 20 minutes. Now, it's not just any non-completing overnight process.

Upgrading and Consolidating SQL Server

are other key areas. With a new bi-yearly release cycle, your SQL Server can become out-of-date and unsupported quite quickly. We can help you upgrade your SQL Server, with upgrades to SQL Server 2019 even! We also help companies leverage the power of features within SQL 2019, SQL 2017 and SQL 2016 . These database releases contain new features like Adaptive Query Processing, In-Memory Tables, Columnstore Indexes and Page Compression (now available for Standard Edition - 2016 SP1+). We also can help with much smaller clients too with SQL Server 2019/2017/2016/2014 Express support. These are but a few of our experiences. We can take the team lead or project manage SQL projects. We're not just database monsters!

SQL Server's Strengths

Gone are the days when SQL Server was just a relational database engine, it is now a feature-rich product steeped in complexity.  Microsoft SQL Server has come a very long way.

This client-server database has grown to a sophisticated free edition (SQL Express Edition), encompassed mainstream data analysis (Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, Analysis Services, Reporting Services, Integration Services) and has a much richer development environment attached to it (T-SQL enhancements, every version). And now Big Data Clusters too! Microsoft wants to release a new SQL product every year or so and thus increase functionality.

How can Sequallity help you?

SQL Server is now finally a proper enterprise business database.  This database software has evolved remarkably in just four version releases (SQL 2019, SQL 2017, SQL 2016 and SQL 2014).  A database administrator needs to know database programming as well as correct SQL Server maintenance.  We can help by custom building databases and we’re also seasoned DBA Administrators too.  We’ve also had extensive experience with Transact-SQL (T-SQL) Development and Query Tuning as well as Report Writing.

Perhaps you need a SQL Performance Tuning Consultant, a SQL Developer, a SQL Server Trainer or a SQL Consultant, well, if you need any of these, then please call us, we can show you how to get the best out of your SQL Server.

Why can you trust Sequallity?

We have worked with both large and small clients, from single stand-alone Small Business Server installations, right up to 250+ SQL Server sites such as Tesco.  We have worked for iSoft, Barclays, Phones4u, Wilkinsons, Business Objects, Greenstar, AutoTrader, Marks and Spencer and the NHS amongst many others.

Also, we’ve worked with medium-sized companies such as Bravissimo, XMA Computer Products, Coldharbour Systems, Storetech, Qtac, Silverstring, Partybox and FreeIndex. But most of all, we love to help.

We have over 28 years experience in the IT industry, of which 21 years have been using SQL Server 6.0, 6.5, 7, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and now 2019.  We currently support the five main platforms, SQL Server 2019, SQL Server 2017, SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014 and SQL Server 2012 and we believe SQL Server 2019 is an Enterprise-class relational database management system.

Version 2019, 2017, Azure, RDS, 2016, 2014, 2012 or 2008 R2?

Well actually, we support all these platforms and we will also consider work for SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 7, SQL Server 6.5 and SQL Server 6.0, if required.  It’s because we like to help!

Working Location

IT is about people, meeting people and trying to resolve the challenges that data presents.  If you have an emergency, we prefer to dial-in remotely (VPN, MSTSC, TeamViewer, QuickAssist) to help resolve the issue (Remote DBA Services), although we can also get to your site quickly.  If its project work then being on-site suits us right down to the ground.  We have offices in the East Midlands at Silverstone but we can work in The City, London, Manchester, Birmingham, the south-east, north, east or west or indeed anywhere in the UK.

Our Ethos

Honesty and Integrity are two words we believe firmly in.  Trust is very important to us and we try to build this into our relationships with our clients, naturally. Our SQL Server consultants want to do an excellent job, first and foremost.  Please check out our clients page and don’t just take our word for it.
