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. Toad Edge represents the next generation of Toad tooling – lightweight, flexible and extensible – simplifying MySQL development and administration, whether running in a Windows or Mac OS X environment.

In this session, we’ll demo some of the coolest features Toad Edge offers, including:

  • Advanced code completion, SQL autocomplete and formatting
  • MySQL JSON data browser/editor
  • Dynamic schema compare and sync
  • User privilege management
  • And more

Join us to see firsthand how the new Toad Edge will give you confidence in your enterprise MySQL commitment.

Unlock the Full Potential of DevOps

Many organizations are turning to DevOps to help them succeed in today’s intensely competitive markets. By embracing Database DevOps practices, which emphasize collaboration and communica­tion between development, operations and other functional areas, they can build, test and release software faster and with fewer defects.

Unfortunately, there is often one huge bottleneck in the otherwise agile DevOps workflow: database development. Organizations have been unable to easily integrate database development tasks such as functional testing of Oracle PL/SQL code or schema compare and sync into the DevOps workflow, or to implement scripts to physically deploy database changes. As a result, they have been unable to fully achieve their goals of faster release cycles and reliably high-quality code.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Download this white paper today and discover:

  • What DevOps is (spoiler alert: it’s not just a set of continuous integration and continuous delivery tools)
  • The benefits DevOps promises, and the results organizations are already achieving
  • How quickly organizations, both large and small, are adopting DevOps
  • The three key factors to a successful DevOps program
  • Why the ideal solution will enable you to execute key database development tasks within your DevOps workflow, and which specific functionality to look for

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 for Oracle DBA Edition 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 for Oracle DBA Edition 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.
