Quest Software Inc. plans to expand its heterogeneous database management offering with Quest Central. Currently available as separate products for Oracle and DB2 databases, Quest Central is an integrated toolset that simplifies daily database management duties including administration, performance diagnostics, SQL tuning and space management. The Quest Central product road map will culminate in the release of a single database management console designed to optimize the performance of multiple database platforms including Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server.

"Over 90 percent of organizations who own relational database management systems are utilizing more than one type of database. And due to budget cutbacks, organizations are confronted with managing more data with limited resources," said Ray Paquet, vice president, research director for Gartner. "Whether running Oracle, DB2 or SQL Server or all three, the ability to cross-train the staff to manage all flavors will greatly enhance worker versatility and productivity, as well as save companies from having to purchase multiple tools from a variety of vendors to manage their mission-critical systems."

Throughout the year, Quest Software will execute on its heterogeneous strategy by delivering new products and updating existing products to help organizations overcome the challenges associated with limited DBA resources and multi-platform database environments.

By allowing users to cross-train and manage their entire database infrastructure from a single interface, organizations are empowered to quickly diagnose and resolve issues within their growing and diverse database infrastructures.
