Business Challenges

Your business relies upon the quality, productivity, and performance of your applications and their associated databases. Downtime and poor performance are the events that most likely cause phones to ring and pagers to buzz. DBAs don't have time to tune the database and application development teams don't have the background and advanced skills to write highly efficient SQL. Compounding matters further, new applications are being developed or purchased, and ongoing maintenance of existing applications seems like a run on a treadmill.

Business Drivers

  • Current applications need a performance boost without expensive hardware upgrades
  • DBAs can't rewrite application SQL
  • Developers aren't experienced with efficient SQL creation
  • Production systems cannot be slowed to test SQL or index changes
  • Application vendors won't fix slow queries or batch processing without proof of performance bottlenecks
