MICROSOFT SQL IMPLEMENTATION – DO IT YOURSELF OR CONSULT AN EXPERT?
Many businesses rely on a Microsoft SQL database – and with good reason. It's powerful, flexible, secure and offers immediate recovery of data should your system fail. But carrying out SQL implementation and support can seem like a daunting task. Where do you begin? How much can you or your IT team do by themselves? Is calling in expert help necessary for a high quality, secure, reliable SQL installation?
Life IT are specialists in Microsoft SQL, offering support, consultancy and development UK-wide. They believe that trusting your SQL implementation to a well-established expert is the best, safest way to ensure everything runs smoothly – and that by using expert SQL support, your database will remain secure and reliable. Here's why...
1. SQL IMPLEMENTATION TO SUIT YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS
Unless your IT team includes an SQL expert, getting up and running can seem nigh-on impossible. A high level of specialist knowledge is required, and although a talented IT team could get to grips with the basics quickly, nothing beats the advice of well-established professionals. Use the services of experienced SQL consultants and, once they've thoroughly discussed your database needs with you, they'll ensure your SQL installation is configured to perform as powerfully and efficiently as possible for your specific, unique requirements – with no fuss or hassle for you or your staff.
2.A SAFE AND SECURE DATABASE
Of course, you'll want to ensure your data is safe and secure – especially if you store sensitive or confidential information. SQL offers high levels of security as standard, but to keep your data as secure as possible, it's best to call upon the services of SQL experts to carry out the initial installation. They'll know how the best, most effective methods of protecting your data from unwanted intruders.
2.SQL ADMIN SUPPORT WHEN YOU NEED IT
Once you're up and running, it's likely that your own IT team will be able to handle the day-to-day SQL admin. But for more complex tasks, such as disaster recovery or system reviews, it's worth enlisting the assistance of specialist SEO programmers to benefit from their expert insight.
3.ALLOW YOUR DATABASE TO EVOLVE AS YOUR BUSINESS DOES
We all know how quickly our business needs can change. You may need to call upon SQL programming experts for bespoke solution development, as such a task is likely to be outside the knowledge of most workplace IT teams. By taking advantage of SQL application development your database will perform to your exact specifications.
As well-established experts in database infrastructure and support, Life IT provide high quality Microsoft SQL development, implementation and support UK-wide.
Whether you're looking for a brand new installation, support for an existing database or bespoke application development, Life IT can offer fast, dynamic solutions to suit you.

What others say about us
“Having migrated from IBM Domino to Microsoft Office 360 (Business Cloud), we are delighted with the results – and have 1000 happy internal customers who much prefer Outlook to Domino. Life IT were flexible, fair and supportive when schedules had to change due to other Gurit projects. We had direct access to engineers and technical staff and a dedicated team who were easy to work with. The whole project was done in a very friendly environment and I would definitely recommend Life IT for these sorts of migration projects.”
Global IT Services Manager — Gurit Services AG
“Without the professional and expert support of Life IT, we wouldn’t have had the quality product we now have. They gently but insistently pushed the boundaries of our assumptions during the analysis phase, getting us to challenge our mind-sets and think outside the box. They then worked seamlessly as part of our team and delivered to time and to budget – no mean feat”.
Head of Technical Services—HCSS
“As we’d already invested significantly in Lotus Notes and Domino, a solution that built on our existing investment and skills was ideal. Life IT understood what was important to us and delivered a solution that met our needs. We’ve already seen the number of ‘distress calls’ to the sales office reduce as our sales managers can easily access customer data off line wherever they are and we’ve had positive feedback all round about the ability to update their call reports instantly on the road.”
Head of IT—Polyflor
“The Life IT solution has provided us with a significant reduction in support and maintenance costs and is an easy to use, more resilient and more easily maintainable system. As a business that handles thousands of transactions a day from 12 different own brand or white label websites it was vital that the whole process was seamless and, with the renewal of the support and maintenance contract from our existing supplier looming, it was also vital that the project came in on deadline. Life IT achieved this and more as they provided us with additional MI functionality and supported our staff whilst transferring their skills.’
Head of IT Development—DLR
“Life IT are doing a great job providing a very professional and efficient service. They are almost silently efficient and just get things done – only escalating issues when necessary. Their expertise in the AS400 is a key strength ensuring a real depth to their service and they keep us up to date with advances in technology too. So from an AS400 perspective I have very little to worry about.”
IT Service Delivery Manager
“After the restructure I was left with a critical resource gap which quickly needed filling, having worked with Life IT before I gave them a call. Their response was swift and efficient. They now work as a virtual Center Parcs help desk team providing a strength and depth of support. Their flexible working based on a time bank system is real value for money. So not only do I get an expert and efficient service, I have reduced my resource costs!”
Head of IT—Center Parcs
“We wanted flexible support to ensure 24/7 cover and Life IT worked with us to deliver this. Life IT has become integrated into the Bentley way of working and their role has expanded into looking at the technical side of the application as well as the support. “Our relationship has been built up over a significant period of time and both sides have worked hard to develop a supplier/customer relationship that can be used as a model throughout Bentley. We are now in the position where we have a pro-active partnership, Life IT are treated as part of Bentley, and that is a credit to them”.
