What Other Schools Say About Virtual DBA

virtual dba for schools case study

Brisbane Catholic Education’s IT administrators found that managing multiple complex database systems was consuming inordinate amounts of their time.

Staff were kept too busy keeping their applications at peak performance and lacked the time to glean insights from the data and present it in a meaningful way to teachers and school management.

They partnered with WARDY IT Solutions to help them manage their systems and maintain optimal performance on the SQL Server database that powers the second largest SharePoint implementation in the southern hemisphere.

The IT departments time is now spent adding value to the business by analysing and transforming the data in ways that helps deliver better student outcomes.

Brisbane Girls Grammar School - Virtual DBA Service for Schools

“The strategic partnership with WARDY IT through their Virtual DBA service enabled the school to ensure the missing critical database services continued to function while a key resources position was vacant and a replacement was found. Knowing regular health checks were being done while having access to highly specialised engineers to resolve any issues that might have arisen meant that business continuity was maintained throughout a busy period in the schools calendar, and gave us the piece of mind we were after.”

Kent Walker, Director of IT, Brisbane Girls Grammar School
