The future of Toad is now: Introducing Toad Edge

Over the past couple years, the use of open-source database management systems has dramatically increased – so much, in fact, that experts are predicting a dramatic market shift from commercial, closed-source DBMSs to OSDBMSs within the next few years. With 31 percent year-over-year market growth since 2013, the numbers speak for themselves. Gartner has weighed-in: “By 2018, more than 70 percent of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS, and 50 percent of existing relational DBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.” During this webcast, you’ll see how our newest Toad product, Toad Edge, is addressing this new space. You’ll see how we’re supporting your organization’s commitment to open source RDBMS with proven commercial tooling to help you ramp up on MySQL and ensure quicker time to value.

How Toad for Oracle DBA Edition Complements Oracle Enterprise Manager

If you use Oracle technologies, you may be relying on Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) to manage your clouds, applications and databases. But if you’re responsible for multiple environments with hundreds of databases as well as Oracle Real Application Clusters (RACs) and Oracle Exadata, then OEM alone will not enable you to do your job effectively. Toad DBA Suite for Oracle can help, complementing OEM by delivering critical functionality in three key areas: performance management, database maintenance and change management. By contrasting how DBAs can use Toad DBA Suite for Oracle and OEM for common tasks in each of these three areas, this technical brief illustrates how using Toad alone, or both solutions together, can simplify Oracle database management and improve DBA productivity.
