Our Shameless Marketing Moment

During this show, Sam talked about the importance of measuring and demonstrating your value to your organization. One of my favorite axioms is "One cannot appreciate what one does not know". During DBI's quick two minute commercial, we demonstrated how easy DBI makes it to graphically demonstrate your successes to your organization. Remarkably, performance trend charts from DBI DB LUW tools are now starting to show up in annual performance appraisals - make sure you obtain the appreciation, respect, and raise you deserve! icon_wink

DBI's comprehensive performance and configuration repository with the industry's best trend graphs enable you to monitor and manage your databases with confidence, improve stability, and achieve scalability with existing hardware.
