No matter which sector a business operates within, a well-managed database is essential to success.
Our clients come to us because we are flexible and able to adapt our level of support to their individual business needs, no matter which sector or industry they operate within. To us, a database is a database regardless of who uses it. Whilst we may have more experience in certain sectors, we describe ourselves as ‘industry agnostic’ because our expertise can deliver value across the board.
Since 2002 we’ve been assisting Public Sector clients in managing and maintaining their business critical database environments at a fraction of the cost of an in-house DBA team.
Public Sector bodies are increasingly being expected to do more with an ever-shrinking budget, so for many the cost of having a DBA team in-house is just too much. However, it’s almost impossible to manage and maintain critical applications which sit on either Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server databases without the relevant database knowledge. In the digital age, well performing applications are essential to a well performing business, but without an expertly maintained underlying database environment this level of performance cannot be assured.
By utilising Xynomix services, our clients can gain peace of mind and the time to focus on what they do best, knowing that their environments are being looked after by an experienced team of highly-skilled DBAs. Our support service removes any single point of failure by providing a pool of consultants rather than the one or two which would generally be employed in-house. This removes any concerns about holiday or sickness cover and gives access to a greater depth and breadth of knowledge from a team with combined experience of over 300 years.
Whether you’re looking for some additional assistance or you’d like to completely outsource your database management, we can help. To find out more about the services we provide visit the pages below or get in touch.

A large local authority had implemented a mission-critical Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) used for revenue and benefits systems.
"We first approached Xynomix for advice on Oracle licensing. They saved us money there, and a year on we have a full database management contract with them."
"We recently installed a new application which ran on Oracle, but were unsure how to correctly licence the environment. As a result, we engaged with Xynomix to advise on how best to do so. Xynomix ran an Independent Oracle Licence Review, which gave us full visibility on our licence compliance. They highlighted the restrictions around various licence types, whilst also detailing how to avoid any pitfalls moving forward."
"A good on-site DBA team, optimised database systems and 24×7 Oracle Support from Xynomix mean that not much goes wrong for us. We are confident enough to make promises of excellent availability to our clients and employees, and they always get it."
"We do not have the resources to employ full time DBAs. Xynomix give us the confidence to go out and win new business, knowing that we can deliver our services and our systems can cope."
"Xynomix provide us with remote monitoring and administration for Linux, as well as Oracle. The proactive monitoring aspect of our service has proved extremely valuable. Whenever potential issues have been recognised with the system, it has always been identified by the monitoring technology and Xynomix DBAs begin work on a preventative fix immediately."
"We have been running Microsoft SQL Server for around two years now and the systems have been supported by Xynomix. Their SQL DBAs are competent and very customer-facing."
"Xynomix worked with us on our recent Oracle Licence Review and provided us with valuable independent and confidential advice to help us through what can be a confusing and complex process. They provided useful expert knowledge on Oracle Licensing policy and also suggested how any gaps could be most effectively licensed. I would certainly recommend working with Xynomix on any future Oracle Licence Review."
"The optimisation, support and management of our Oracle database arrangement by Xynomix has increased the efficiency of the Oracle database and reduced the total running cost, whilst at the same time allowing us to provide a better service for staff and student end-users."
"Xynomix investigated the performance bottlenecks that we were experiencing after updating our data warehouse application. After investigating the system, Xynomix concluded that the database server's cache-hit rates and available memory were both low, which was impacting negatively on performance. The technician rectified this and we are now very happy with the function of the application."
"My team are always flat out ensuring that the Oracle database system is up and running without any problems. Sometimes when there is a larger issue we need a helping hand. Xynomix give us that option."
"In the manufacturing sector, we need flexibility and immediate assistance when things go wrong. Xynomix have achieved this brilliantly, and make sure that at least one DBA is available when we call with a problem at any time of the day or night."
"We were slightly unhappy with our previous managed services provider and decided to try Xynomix. They help us ensure that our database system is always running smoothly and the customer service they offer is so much better."
"Being able to trust a supplier is the goal of any relationship, and that's exactly what we've achieved with Xynomix."
