IDERA Unveils Expanded Product Portfolio at PASS Summit 2015

New product innovations and education programs target world’s largest gathering of SQL Server professionals

SEATTLE – Oct 28, 2015 – IDERA, a leading provider of database lifecycle management solutions, today announced a series of new products, free tools and updates that expand the company’s SQL Server capabilities and extend its portfolio into infrastructure performance and MySQL. IDERA also announced new industry education programs and sponsorships that demonstrate its continued commitment to the advancement of the SQL community.

Expanded Product Focus

With its recent acquisition of Embarcadero, IDERA is combining its deep SQL database performance management expertise with Embarcadero’s multi-platform database management products to create the most comprehensive portfolio of database management solutions in the market. This expanded focus enables IDERA to meet the needs and demands of its customers with greater scale, a broader portfolio and the global reach their businesses require.

“Joining forces with Embarcadero opens tremendous technology and market opportunities and makes us the only one-stop-shop for end-to-end database lifecycle management,” said Randy Jacops, CEO of IDERA. “Expanding our product portfolio to include infrastructure performance management tools ties the database to all things IT and highlights the critical role the database plays in the performance of the entire ecosystem.”

New and upcoming IDERA product releases include:

  • MySQL Query Explorer – Allows users to monitor problem MySQL queries through a simple dashboard, providing a summary view of top time wasters with the ability to explore individual execution plans and statistics to isolate issues. MySQL Query Explorer is IDERA’s first free tool to support MySQL users.
  • SQL Diagnostic Manager 10.0 – New features include prescriptive analytics to identify common tuning and configuration mistakes and provide specific advice to resolve issues; analysis on demand, scheduled or triggered by specific alert response actions by category; web console enhancements with drag and drop widgets and increased flexibility; and custom dashboards. This release also combines the functionality of SQL Doctor within SQL Diagnostic Manager allowing users to pinpoint issues and troubleshoot solutions all within one interface.
  • SQL Workload Analysis – Enables SQL Diagnostic Manager customers to isolate and resolve tough performance issues with specific SQL transactions or workloads in just a few mouse clicks.

Community Commitment

IDERA also continues to maintain an active commitment to the SQL community. The company is resurrecting its popular Advisors and Community Educators (ACE) program that helps active members of the SQL Server community share knowledge by sponsoring their travel to a variety of SQL Server conferences and events. In addition, IDERA is proud to be a Silver PASS sponsor, allowing company experts to participate in more SQL community events to gather real-world perspective on its products and how to improve them. Finally, IDERA continues to provide financial and promotional support to Argenis Without Borders, a SQL community effort to raise money for Doctors Without Borders.

“Our products are only as good as the DBAs and IT Ops professionals that use them,” said Vicky Harp, corporate strategist at IDERA. “The return of the ACE program illustrates IDERA’s deep commitment to the SQL community. Working with these great professionals is a win-win, allowing them to expand their efforts as community educators and helping us to better understand the evolving needs of our users.”

“I’m honored to be chosen as an IDERA ACE for 2016,” said Monica Rathburn, IDERA ACE. “Speaking and traveling in support of the SQL Server community can be a costly, time-consuming endeavor. IDERA’s ACE program provides sponsorship and mentorship in best practices, providing invaluable opportunities for me to promote my brand and SQL expertise in ways that would otherwise be out of reach.”
