Pradeep... I've seen your posts... have you a website I could visit?

Jeff, I work for HP GCI(Global center of India, Bangalore). I dont hv a personal website of mine. May be you'd like to visit HP's sites. I've not seen too many cases wherein the TAT was missed except for few in tens of thousands. We maintain our TTO(time to own) and TTR(time to response) very stringently.


TTO and TTR you explained, but what is TAT?

Lynn, TAT=Turn Around Time (not a defined phrase as per the SDD-service delivary document, but we use it for TTO+TTR).
eg. in one of our deliveries, Time to own the tickets is 15 minutes and Time to resolve the tickets is 3hrs 30 mins. so TAT becomes 3 hrs 45 mins (for Priority 1 tickets).

correction TTR= Time to Resolve and not time to respond as i mentioned in the previous post.

In all fairness I have known in-house DBAs who fail to provide the level of service mentioned previously. My question is whether the company in question holds their in-house DBAs to the same standard as the remote (and hence outsourced) ones? Maybe your company does. My experience is that many companies dont hold their internal IT staff to the same rigor as they do the consultant/remote workers. I have known internal DBAs that missed backup failures because of the demand to get development projects done. That is unacceptable as I am sure you agree.

That may be one off case. but personally I wont generalize whether in-house dbas are better off or outsourced ones. Depends on passion of work. I have changed my company now and we have both in-house and outsourced DBAs here and we have excellant coordination. nobody finds fault at others and both teams help each other.
