Managed support service at Mediahuis

About Mediahuis

Mediahuis is a big media company writing some of the most known Belgian newspapers like ‘De Standaard’, ‘Het Nieuwsblad’ and ‘Gazet Van Antwerpen’.

They also maintain sites like ‘’ and ‘Jobat’.

Furthermore, Mediahuis is part of Corelio Media. Known for production company ‘Woestijnvis’ and television channels ‘Vier’ and ‘Vijf’.


Mediahuis uses Oracle as the underlying database for a number of important applications.

In the past, one DBA managed everything.

But due to the changing availability expectations, it was no longer possible to let one person handle the support required.


The Oracle databases are continuously monitored by Exitas so that action can be taken proactively and when necessary. This is all part of the managed support services contract.

Exitas is the partner who advises about upgrades, licensing and optimizations. They also provide the support outside business hours and during holiday periods when the DBA is absent.

“Exitas is one of the most experienced Oracle partners in Belgium, and was able to deliver Mediahuis a customized offer. They have a wide range of people with in-depth Oracle knowledge on which Mediahuis can rely. Exitas can also respond flexibly to requirements for Oracle knowledge needed in projects.”
