In a nutshell, that's what we do: manage data.
Data management consists of activities such as Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, Data Mining, Data Integration, Extract/Transform/Load (ETL), Analytics and Big Data.
We are a very hands-on team at VLDB.
We don't just 'talk the talk'. We roll up our sleeves, crack out the keyboard and 'walk the walk'.
At the end of the day, when the fat lady sings, it's all about results.
Most of VLDB's consultants have been practicing data management since the 1980's and 1990's.
Your project (and data!) is in safe hands with some of the most experienced, qualified and highly regarded Data Management specialists in the UK.
We believe in old-fashioned notions such as "picking the right tool for the job",
"only the best is good enough"
and "if a job is worth doing it's worth doing well".
That said, VLDB's favourite guiding principle comes from none other than Leonardo da Vinci:
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"
Not sure which data platform to buy, or don't have the skills in-house to build your own?
Don't want to hire teams of expensive DBAs?
Can't get the FD/CFO to sanction the £100,000+ capital expenditure?
Don't want vendor lock-in?
Worry ye not. Help is at hand.
is a fully managed cloud data platform designed, delivered and supported by VLDB's experts.
Removing the data platform headache with Cloud Intelligence make perfect sense, but that still leaves the not-so-small problem of application development.
Someone's got to develop the Extract/Transform/Load (ETL) processes to get all that pesky data loaded and keep it refreshed.
Most folks don't have the skills, bandwidth or risk appetite to adopt the DIY approach.
Most of the time that means paying armies of expensive 'consultants' to get the job done.
Just like when it was time to find a data platform, the CFO/FD won't like the cost, especially when it's open-ended.
Well, how does fixed price application development sound?
Yes, we thought you'd like the sound of that!
