ROCHESTER, NY - (May 31, 2002) - DGI, the industry standard in performance management tools for IBM DB2 UDB*, announced a special product bundling for the month of June. Any company who licenses Flight Deck in June 2002 will receive a complimentary license for Palm-GUY plus one Palm VIIx.
Flight Deck, the first application of its kind to integrate pervasive DB2 UDB control and management through a web browser, is now available in version 1.20. The latest version grants the power to monitor performance data across multiple DB2 environments or multiple DB2/EEE nodes, all from a summarized bird's-eye view. The Advanced SQL Search feature finds all application SQL accessing a given table, even if the SQL references DB2 views or aliases. And because Flight Deck operates through a web browser, there is no need to install cumbersome software on every DBA's desktop machine.
Palm-GUY permits access to DB2 and operating system statistics at any time from anywhere because it runs on a wireless handheld device. Therefore, key performance information is pervasively available, and the database administrator can control the database directly from the handheld device, rather than dialing in to a telnet session or going into the office in the middle of the night.
database administrator is required to be available 24/7," said
Scott Hayes, president and founder of DGI. "We recognize the
need for everyone to maintain quality of life while meeting business
needs, especially for the DBA who is on-call. If the DBA can make the
database change right from a Palm handheld device instead of going
home and dialing in, or worse yet, going back to the office, he or she
has the chance of returning to personal time much quicker, making for
a happier DBA and improved business results."
Hayes continued, "And managers will appreciate the fact that handheld devices, such as the Palm handhelds, are much more cost-effective for employees than a laptop. The ability to instantaneously respond to business performance issues, from anywhere, at any time, is a huge boost for availability and organization productivity."
"Considering this price difference, quality of life returned to the DBA, and resultant resource availability improvements, the return on investment is phenomenal," Hayes added. "We wanted to make this offer in June so that DBAs may have the opportunity to spend some personal time this summer where it should be spent — not in the office."
Interested parties should contact DGI directly at 1-877-432-4897 (toll free) or 1-585-349-2450 (outside the U.S.), or visit the company's web site at www.breakthroughdb2.com to inquire about the performance tools.
