Role of our team

Xedis helped Constructiv to plan, implement and monitor the migration from the SQL Server 2008 R2 to SQL Server 2016.
We compare this job with the well-known riddle of the man who had to cross a river in a very small boat with 3 possessions: a fox, a chicken and a sack of grain...  However, instead of just three variables (fox, chicken, grain), the scope of this project was quite more challenging since it encompassed:

  • a few hundred databases;
  • about 50 applications and platforms (SSRS, Sharepoint, BizTalk);

  • 7 application owners;

  • 10+ external suppliers.

Next to facilitating the SQL Server, we also contributed to:

  • optimizing the (security) configuration of the helpdesk tool (MantisBT);

  • monitoring and developing some operational dashboards;

  • optimizing the configurations.


  • Better insights through accurate and detailed documentation

  • Insight in performance and capacity through improved monitoring

  • Higher security levels

  • Enhanced systems through up to date technology

  • More availability through HA and DRP plans
