WHY EXPERIENCE SOS SQL SAM OPTIMISATION CONSULTANCY?

We find significant SQL Server licensing shortfalls in 8 out of 10 of our customers.


WHAT IS THE SQL OPTIMISATION CONSULTANCY?

Microsoft SQL Server non-compliance can fall into the $millions and 90% of the time this cost is un-budgeted. Our SQL Optimisation Consultancy is designed to remove Microsoft SQL licensing shock and deliver considerable cost savings.

Our SQL Optimisation Consultancy is self-funded and delivers average savings of $280,000 per engagement, but savings can be much higher. Recently we saved a client $5,200,000 in SQL licensing alone.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Reduce SQL licensing spend and avoid licensing shortfalls by engaging our SQL Licensing and SQL Technology Specialists. We will provide a "what-is" situation of your SQL installations matched with your licenses and a "what-could-be" situational analysis.
