About Us

LobsterPot Consultants are Australia’s SQL Server Experts

Founded in 2008 by Principal Consultant Rob Farley, LobsterPot Solutions has grown into a team of Database Developers, Administrators and Business Intelligence Professionals with a presence in Melbourne and Adelaide. All LobsterPot consultants hold Microsoft Certifications in SQL Server, and are recognized specialists in SQL Server and BI.
LobsterPot Solutions has met the rigorous requirements to be recognised as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, and to become the first Australian company to be a Microsoft Partner with Gold Competency. Microsoft themselves say, “Partners with gold competencies demonstrate the highest, most consistent capability and commitment within a specific business solution area.” Also, through this level in the Partner Network and a strong relationship with Microsoft HQ, LobsterPot Solutions has access to early product releases and exclusive resources.
