In a time when a majority of the businesses are migrating their processes to the cloud, all roads are seemingly leading to Amazon Web Services (AWS). As one of the most popular cloud-computing platforms, AWS offers a cost-efficient way to design high-performing and secured enterprise and business applications with resizable capacity. Nevertheless, irrespective of whether businesses are deploying new applications in AWS, or migrating existing ones, the promised cost savings, agility, and scalability depend on the database and analytics services selected. Businesses need to assess the benefits and risks of their preferred cloud model properly to avoid paying for over-provisioning. At the same time, right cloud capacity is also essential to decrease the cost and optimize the usage of the cloud. To overcome such hurdles, enterprises need an experienced partner with a deep understanding of the AWS database and analytics services to guide them through the entire cloud adoption journey. Understanding the apposite need of the hour, dbSeer cements its cornerstone around enabling enterprises to migrate their legacy platforms to AWS and reap the full benefits of AWS.

Founded in 2013, dbSeer helps clients solve their unique analytics, data architecture and design, and data engineering challenges. “Instead of a typical ‘lift and shift’ approach, we help businesses re-architect and adjust their enterprise needs to gain the best out of AWS,” comments Mahyar Ghasemali, co-founder and president of dbSeer. As a strategic partner, the company helps its clients plan, design, develop, and deploy solutions by analyzing database needs and recommending decoupling strategies for optimal use of open source alternatives. This particular approach of dbSeer can lead to significant cost savings with better scalability, reliability, and performance of cloud applications.

dbSeer matches best-of-breed analytics technologies and unique analytics frameworks with the needs of its clients to drive results effortlessly in the shortest possible time.
Pushing the envelope further, dbSeer promotes an agile approach to cloud application development that simplifies each project into a series of short, ROI-justified steps aimed at incrementally reaching an individual organizational target. Especially when it comes to larger organizations, Ghasemali highlights, “the best way to start the cultural shift in cloud transformation is through bold vision and baby steps, like starting with shorter PoCs.”

Talking about dbSeer’s recent client engagements, Ghasemali shares the story of a leading global research firm that desired a global view of their internal data through a consolidated analytics system. The client wanted to consolidate data from the ERP systems, CRM, HRMS, and budgeting solutions into a central repository, giving them a holistic view of their entire operation. dbSeer leveraged its deep expertise in AWS to help the client accumulate all of these data sources using Redshift, allowing them to build a whole new data platform within AWS. With the platform deployed, more than 2500 global users are now able to run reports and retrieve the necessary analytics from the platform.

Such an outstanding record of accomplishments is a testament to dbSeer’s depth of experience in the AWS ecosystem. At a time when AWS offers 24 different categories of services, dbSeer keeps its focus solely on data platforms, which includes data processing, data warehousing, advanced analytics, and visualization. “We provide subject-matter experience to our clients that they don’t necessarily get from other partners who have a broad range of expertise,” comments Ghasemali. To offer an enhanced customer experience, dbSeer employs an internal training program that ensures all their new employees are trained on AWS during the first two months of their joining. It is important to note that dbSeer is one of the very few companies that has all of their employees and consultants AWS trained.

Having already established itself as a new breed of business analytics consulting firm focused on the AWS data platform, dbSeer’s plan for 2020 is to continue offering its services around analytics and data processing, while simultaneously expanding its capabilities further. To this extent, the company is poised to add more services around Amazon SageMaker— the AWS machine-learning platform—along with other upcoming cloud features.
