Quest moves from Netbase to SQL savvy
After creating and polishing the 3000
shadowing software Netbase, Quest Software has put a lot of its
energy into managing SQL-based databases, especially the kind that
are being asked to replace the HP 3000's TurboIMAGE.
Now Quest has come out with Toad for
Oracle, a development and admin tool to build queries to Oracle
databases. It's also got a more technical layer that lets a DBA debug
SQL code, or create and modify database objects. A Flash movie (you
need to have a Flash player installed in your browser) gives you a
tour of Toad.
IMAGE could be complex to program, but the
world of Oracle can make the 3000's database programming seem simple
by comparison. Oracle is at the heart of solutions such as the
Ecometry Web commerce application, so getting fluent with the SQL
database might be easier with tools like Toad.
Quest has also done some migration
boasting of late, talking about being the company which has helped
along more 3000 migrations than any other. Quest has its Bridgeware
solution to thank for the migration success. You can look over the
offering at the company's Bridgeware
