Blackbaud Database Audits

Omatic can conduct a comprehensive audit of your database, in which a senior consultant examines and assesses system integrity, cleanliness, usage of good practices, and the extent to which the database meets the business needs of the organization using it. All audit engagements include an audit report, recommendations, an action plan, a system configuration analysis, and a final interactive session with the consultant to review these outputs.
