Case Study: SQL Diagnostic Manager for SQL Server

IDERA Helps American Fidelity Assurance Cut Database Administration Time by 50 Percent

As the number and size of SQL Server applications expands at an exponential rate within many companies, database administration requirements also grow, stretching available technical resources to the limit. What’s needed is a diagnostic and management tool that can track critical SQL Server performance parameters and deliver alerts to database administrators (DBAs) whenever a problem arises, allowing them to focus on proactive tasks rather than constantly monitoring for problems.
