Customer Success

Harvard Business Publishing employs Pythian Database Managed Services as an extension of their team to get more done.

Pythian Database Managed Services saves Harvard Business Publishing hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.



Harvard Business Publishing




Boston, USA

Harvard Business Publishing was challenged with running multiple database platforms. Well versed in infrastructure code to make their website perform, HBP lacked database administration and architecture expertise. HBP needed database administration for Oracle, ISQL, Microsoft SQL and AWS Aurora. 

Training the current HBP team to cover database administration and architecture experience would have been a long process and expensive. That’s where Pythian came in.


What we did

  • Provided a remote team of DBA experts to help run all the database platforms
  • Ran critical business reports and architected databases to store new data structures
  • No matter the database platform, Pythian DBA expertise was available 

Technologies used 

  • Oracle
  • ISQL 
  • Microsoft SQL
  • AWS Aurora

"We’ve looked elsewhere and we have found that we never can get as great service as we do from Pythian anywhere else. Pythian is a great remote DBA partner. They’re a part of our team and they make us successful at Harvard Business Publishing. "

Stefano McGhee, Senior Manager of DevOps at Harvard Business Publishing.
