Our services in action

Managing more for less

One of our government clients has a large portfolio of non-production environments (60+) that support their transformation programme, as well as traditional production support activities. Ascent has been managing this service for them for almost 10 years. Over that time we have managed the required team size down to four technical administrators, through automation drive. The environment consists of more than 200 databases, 150+ linux servers and a number of middleware service technologies. Our contribution has been so successful that we have been asked to incorporate the management of cloud-based service into the same management methodology.
