Database Management and Administration

A company's data is one of its most valuable assets. Data should be protected, accurate, and readily available to support your organization's operations and key business decisions. Database health and maintenance are essential, but often neglected, aspects of data management and governance, and without solid strategies and monitoring in place, a company's data can be at risk of breach, corruption, or loss.

Marathon provides DBA expertise covering all stages of the data lifecycle, including database planning, management, and advisory services. Our team of certified DBA professionals has experience managing complex and sophisticated database systems, and will work with you to develop an effective data management strategy that is flexible and scalable.

When you partner with Marathon, you gain a trusted team who can manage the responsibilities of keeping your databases running at peak efficiency, allowing you to focus on your business and leverage your data with confidence.

Whether your data lives on-site, in the cloud, or both, we'll make sure it's safe, accurate, and ready to keep your business moving forward.
