SnelStart is a software development business for small and medium sized organizations based in the Netherlands. After the integration of Azure in 2010, it has seen a significant increase in productivity including the addition of 12,000 elastic databases and more to come. As more software is developed, SnelStart is able to meet the demands of clients and provide their needs within three months compared to the former half a year, not to mention they can ship out updates and changes within twenty-four hours.
SnelStart already caters to 55,000 customers with a smaller staff of a hundred employees. Thirty five of them are IT staff. The small staff is mostly thanks to the removal of overhead with Azure’s SQL database. They can focus primarily on creating software instead of hosting and maintaining their own servers.
“Working with Azure means we can deliver software faster, quickly react to customer demands, and scale solutions when demands increase,” Software Architect at SnelStart Henry Been said.
Thanks to their close relationship with Microsoft Azure, they hope to continue working forward towards a progressive 1,000 elastic database pools per month to keep their growing customer base.
