Node4 has completed the investment in Nottingham based Database Managed Services specialist, Onomi, aimed at strengthening its portfolio of end-to-end IT solutions.

Onomi’s addition of a managed database services can be delivered as-a-service through Node4’s own cloud infrastructure.

“We view this as an exciting and positive step towards providing businesses with best-in-class technology solutions and enabling them on their IT journey” said Andrew Gilbert, CEO, at Node4.

“Leveraging Onomi’s significant capability and expertise in database management gives us a great opportunity to add further value to our existing and prospective customers by introducing cloud database skills and management services to them,” Gilbert added.

Database managed services cover implementation, database administration, optimisation, support, maintenance and disaster recovery of business-critical databases. As Big Data becomes the focus of many business strategies, database volumes and complexity continue to grow, making them unmanageable for in-house IT departments. Database managed services allow businesses to keep their databases optimised and secure whilst making the most of the insights databases provide without putting a big strain on their internal IT resources.

“This is a great opportunity for Onomi. We’ve grown very quickly, and needed to develop our back-office operations but doing it on our own would have required us to slow down. This investment by Node4 enables us to scale the business without any disruption to our customers. We now have the ability to scale and invest in staff and tech to continue to innovate,” said Julian Boneham, Director and co-founder at Onomi. “We are already working with the Node4 development team to scale our innovation capabilities. We are coming at the market from a position of renewed strength,” added Andrew Slater, Director and co-founder at Onomi.
