Consolidated database management 'can cut costs'

Centralized database management can allow organizations to reduce the cost of IT operations, while providing organizational sustainability, it has been claimed.

According to OAO Technology Solutions, consolidation can also improve corporate data quality.

Cameron Chehreh, chief technology officer, strategic business solutions senior vice president and general manager at the group, commented: "Infrastructure consolidation enhances IT operations, supports the audit and verification of assets to reduce legislative compliance risk and can also improve the quality and security of corporate data."

Mr Chehreh went on to stress that successful database management relocation and consolidation projects begin with identifying stakeholders, determining goals and defining appropriate success criteria.

Last week, the Social Security Administration announced that it is to build a new a new $800 million green database management solution in the Baltimore area.

The group added that a further $500 million will also be paid in order to hire staff to reduce backlogs in disability claims.
