 Oracle Managed Services

UK based Oracle experts available when and where you need us


As an Oracle Partner, our consultants have been experts in Oracle database technologies since the 1990’s. Our in-house Oracle Certified DBAs are Security Cleared, have worked with customers of all shapes and sizes and have real-world experience of every conceivable environment.

This pedigree has been invaluable in creating our Oracle Managed Service & Consulting portfolio as we recognise the challenges faced by our customers.

“There are real opportunities for Oracle customers to take advantage of features such as multi-tenancy, cloud, in-memory and NoSQL capability. N4{Rethink} is a great initiative to provide Oracle users with independent, expert advice.”
