Precise Monitoring Tool Gains SQL Server Support
Precise Software Solutions on Tuesday extended the reach of its database tool for managing application performance by offering a version for Microsoft Corp.s SQL Server.
Precise/Indepth for SQL Server 2000, available now, allows database administrators to detect and resolve the causes of application performance problems in a production environment. The SQL Server version joins pervious versions of the software for Oracle and IBM databases.
Precise officials said the time was right to add SQL Server because it is the leading database on Windows and, according to Gartner Dataquest, grew 25 percent for overall relational databases in new license sales in 2001. The version targets users running SQL Server 2000 for mission-critical applications such as ERP and CRM.
"Both our existing customers as well as numerous companies worldwide have been eagerly awaiting the release of Precise/Indepth for SQL Server, and we have already generated revenues from this product," said Shimon Alon, CEO at Precise, based in Westwood, Mass.
Precise worked jointly with Microsoft in developing Precise/Indepth for SQL Server to ensure the tool allows for monitoring and detection of application performance degradation while consuming minimal overhead, officials said.
Precise/Indepth for SQL Server also offers the ability to examine application performance over time and detect trends by storing performance data in the Precise Performance Warehouse.
