DBmarlin helps Mayden accelerate database performance in multiple ways

We recently sat down with Chris Eldridge, Director of Operations at Mayden, to discuss how Mayden uses DBmarlin to accelerate database performance.

For over 20 years, Mayden has specialised in technology that supports healthcare services deliver data driven, outcome focused and patient centred care. Their flagship product - iaptus - is a patient management system used in over 200 NHS organisations across the UK, making it the most widely used patient management software for Adult and Child mental health providers in the NHS.

With such widely used critical software, the development team prioritises agility and speed. They deploy code multiple times a day and manage risk with small releases. Their frequent updates allow for faster innovation and gives them a competitive advantage over other health software.

Here, Chris explains the importance of products running quickly and being responsive, especially if these applications are being used for long periods of time.

At Mayden, DBmarlin is used by at least three of their teams. This includes their systems team, which builds and maintains their cloud infrastructure on AWS and uses DBmarlin to help diagnose production issues and resolve them before they become a significant issue.

DBmarlin also helps Mayden’s developers during the development process of a feature before launch, allowing them to get feedback on their designs and understand how their designs are performing in real life.

Mayden have also used DBmarlin during a migration from a previous hosting environment, allowing them to manage costs.
