Triton Consulting were selected to partner with Pulsen owing to their industry renowned levels of DB2 expertise. Following discussions with Iqbal Goralwalla, Head of DB2 Managed Services, Pulsen Retail decided to utilise Triton’s Consultancy on Demand (CoD) service. CoD allows customers to purchase packages of DB2 consultancy hours which they can call-off as and when needed at an hourly increment, so giving maximum flexibility. Hours can be used for training, consultancy or development work or any planned DB2 activity – for example, version upgrades or new feature implementation.
Pulsen has also signed up to Triton’s signature 24×7 RemoteDBA service. This service is designed to provide on-going support for business-critical databases. The 24x 7 service includes the industry respected DBI Performance Monitoring tools.
