IDERA Releases Major Update to DB PowerStudio

Product suite updates include improved multi-platform experience, decreased time to resolution and enhanced Oracle support

HOUSTON, TX – October 26, 2016 – IDERA, a leading provider of database lifecycle management solutions, today released DB PowerStudio 2016+, designed and built from the ground up by IDERA following the company’s acquisition of Embarcadero in October 2015. With this update, IDERA continues its commitment to investing in the most popular database platforms with new features for Oracle databases.

DB PowerStudio combines four innovative products (DBArtisan, DB Change Manager, DB Optimizer and Rapid SQL) to help database professionals build and maintain mission-critical database systems, streamline database change management and quickly pinpoint and fix performance bottlenecks. DB PowerStudio 2016+ provides an integrated multi-platform experience, allowing DBAs to manage their combined Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase and IBM DB2 environments in a unified dashboard.

"Baron Software is a longtime user of IDERA's DB PowerStudio, which we use to help our clients maintain thousands of mission-critical, multi-platform databases for data warehouses and robust, data driven applications,” said Richard Baroniunas, software developer and DBA at Baron Software. “All of Baron Software’s clients deserve the best monitoring and troubleshooting tools on the market and that’s why we always use IDERA’s DB PowerStudio suite. The newest release will provide even better client satisfaction, which is our main objective."

In DB PowerStudio 2016+, IDERA has significantly expanded Oracle support in DBArtisan and Rapid SQL to include eleven additional Oracle-specific schema object types along with other features, including the full set of partitioning options for both tables and indexes. IDERA has also added multiple performance improvements to increase response time and decrease time to solution. For example, DBArtisan and Rapid SQL now include a one-click operation that combines technical support details into a .zip file that users can send to IDERA for troubleshooting, eliminating typical back-and-forth spec gathering.

IDERA has also simplified all of the products in the DB PowerStudio suite by consolidating each product into a single edition with all available features. This ensures that all customers can access the full capabilities of each tool.

"IDERA’s commitment to supporting DBAs who are managing multi-platform environments is evident through this release, with ongoing development for these products and the recent release of our Rapid Database Extractor free tool," said Bert Scalzo, IDERA senior product manager and Oracle ACE. "These updates and enhancements further establish DB PowerStudio as the industry’s top data management tool suite."
