Allan is the joint owner of Copper Blue Consulting Ltd. I work with companies helping them to decide how best to store their data
Document (DocumentDB, Mongo)
Relational (SQL Server)
I also help customers to decide on whether a move to cloud based offerings makes sense. The Azure platform from Microsoft has a lot to offer and it isn't necessarily a Cloud/On Premise binary choice. Hybrid scenarios make a lot of sense too.
I also work with customers who have large scale or interesting data movement requirements. This could be batch processes which are complex or real-time sensor and telemetry data.
We offer training as well as consultancy. www.Copper-Blue.com
