Innovation in DBA and Data Modeling Tools: Lowering the Cost and Complexity of Tool Management
Today, most sizable IT organizations have hundreds, if not thousands, of licenses for software tools that are critical for building and running the databases that power their business. Managing these tools licenses, including deploying, provisioning, and updating them, is time-consuming and incurs many hidden costs. At best, challenges in getting the tools mean delays in business-critical projects; but worse, the wrong tools can cause costly mistakes, wrong configurations, and production setbacks. The problem multiplies as today's teams are typically spread across customers, outsourcers, and around the globe. A new approach is needed to remove the complexity of getting tools to IT professionals. Organizations need to centrally manage, but still be agile in responding to changing needs and heterogeneous systems. This session introduces a lightweight tool management technology that can be easily deployed behind the firewall and leverages cloud computing principles to reduce costs and simplify tool management.
