Please contact the database hosting team at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a meeting to discuss needs. Project managers should involve database administration staff in application projects as early as possible to ensure appropriate allocation of time and resources. A meeting will be arranged to discuss the following points:
Listing the types of databases and applications to be served
Estimating capacity and performance needs
Reviewing the policies and procedures for database management
Reviewing the service agreement to set expectations
Designating departmental support staff to interface with database support staff
Length of hosting need (6 mos, 1yr, etc)
The project manager should be prepared to designate one or two staff members to serve as the interface with the database team in creating databases and obtaining support. The project manager or application administrator may also serve this role.
