BraveSoft: Database administration, business intelligence made easy

Databases are everywhere, running everything.

And BraveSoft of Ann Arbor is there to help you run and support your enterprise databases.

“If you drive down the highway, every business you see has a database,” said BraveSoft president Tom Wood. “In many cases, the database is the key to the existence of the business.”

And those databases are run by people known as database administrators, or DBAs. BraveSoft’s core business is providing remote database administration services – complementing a company’s staff of DBAs, or in most cases, taking over for them completely.

Wood said BraveSoft’s DBA services work around the clock, and the company invests in the latest monitoring software, expert technical staff, and cloud solutions.

The company’s staff of 42 employees is 100 percent U.S.-based. Wood said BraveSoft opted to expand to downtown Ann Arbor rather than elsewhere because of the area’s great IT talent pool.

BraveSoft also provides business intelligence consulting – the management and analysis of that Big Data that a lot of companies are generating these days. Wood said that too often, too many companies are still managing financial and performance information on Excel spreadsheets. That makes it hard to see the bigger picture of the entire enterprise. Wood said BraveSoft helps “break down the silos of information” and help management see the whole picture with a proven BI methodology.

“We analyze marketing data, financial data, manufacturing data, even social media sentiment analysis,” Wood said.

The company’s fastest growing services are business intelligence systems that make sense of the huge volumes of financial and operations data most enterprises generate, along with database support managed services.

BraveSoft also moved from Ann Arbor’s outskirts to a downtown location at 301 E. Liberty St. for what Wood called “a cool location” that offered plenty to do within walking distance. That’s important to the young university talent the company is hiring.

“We deliver predictable services at a predictable cost for our remote DBA managed services,” Wood said. “For our BI service, we have successfully deployed our services for a wide range of industries with affordable and effective solutions, allowing our clients to accomplish their specific business performance goals. We have a higher concentration on compliance and security than our competitors.”

BraveSoft also has several job openings. The company is looking for business intelligence data architects, data scientists, skilled database administrators and programmers with experience in big data analytics and predictive analytics.

BraveSoft serves clients in a variety of industries, from financial services to health care to manufacturing. Client revenue ranges from $5 million a year to several billion dollars a year.
