Quest Software wins two awards at SBR's Technology Excellence Awards

Quest Software regined in the information Management and infrastructure technology categories.

Recognising the company’s ability to incorporate a dynamic approach towards database monitoring, Singapore Business Review (SBR) decided to merit the Information Management Award for computer software to Quest Software’s Foglight for Cross-Platform Databases.

The solution enables organisations to proactively manage and tune both real-time and historical performance, troubleshoot, and enhance the overall health of the database environment; including advanced features such as change tracking and performance advisories.

It allows users to merge and standardise database performance monitoring throughout several database platforms regardless of their location—cloud or on-premise—including commercial and open-source relational databases, non-relational databases, and cloud-only databases.

Its other features include deep diagnostics, which supplies drilldowns that accelerate the investigation of platform-specific database performance issues and exhibits real-time and historical information together with pop-up advice with corresponding workflows.

Foglight for Cross-Platform Databases also has drag-and-drop reporting, which hands over insights via personalised views and reports, so that the root cause of performance departures in application environments can be quickly determined and addressed.

The platform also unearths database workload by drilldowns into the data cube, thereby displaying all data dimensions, including users, programs, SQL and sessions. It also offers automatic change monitoring and instance discovery as well as statement-level wait-event analysis, which swiftly resolves resource-related performance issues by revealing the cause and location of waits through wait statistics diagnosis.

To supply data for troubleshooting, Foglight for Cross-Platform Database equips users with alarms. Lastly, the solution can complement other end-to-end enterprise monitors.

The success of Quest Software does not end with database solutions.

As the coronavirus pandemic forces more companies to adopt remote working strategies, enterprises turn to collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams. However, many organisations still rely on legacy infrastructure. In the distant future, they will also need to support a hybrid model, which is problematic for native auditing tools that are constricted in their capacity to cater to the security and compliance needs for this new business model.

To guarantee this hybrid landscape and constant compliance by sourcing on-premise and cloud modifications from a single intuitive SaaS dashboard, organizations can incorporate Quest On Demand Audit Hybrid Suite for Office 365, which offers a single, hosted view of user activity across hybrid Microsoft environments and provides organizations a bird’s eye view to all changes taking place in several platforms such as Active Directory, Azure AD and Office 365.

Besides this, the platform can also cut down time spent on investigation thanks to a responsive and versatile search builder. It can also simplify data analysis through engaging visualisations and rationalise audit data through a simple format that is easy to understand and interpret.

Users can also obtain immediate, one-click access to detailed data on every change and related events, which significantly cuts guesswork in investigation. They can also deliver real-time alerts to email and mobile gadgets to require instant action.

Meanwhile, stakeholders can get the precise reports they require with granular assigned access. The platform can also keep audit history for as long as 10 years at a fixed subscription price, which is significantly longer than the native retention period.
