Willamette Dental Group Improves Application Performance with Ignite Database Monitoring Software

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

Confio Software helped Willamette Dental Group, the largest multi-specialty group dental practice in the Pacific Northwest, improve its software application performance with Ignite for SQL Server, Confio's signature database performance monitoring solution. Using Ignite, Willamette Dental Group was able to more quickly resolve trouble tickets, accurately pinpoint database bottlenecks that were hindering performance of its legacy and vendor applications, and improve the efficiency of its business.

Ignite's agentless architecture monitors database performance without installing any software on the production systems. As a result of this unique architecture, Willamette Dental Group can effectively use Ignite for SQL Server without any memory implications.

“We had performance issues in both our legacy applications and those recently implemented by a vendor,” said Edward Sandoval, senior network engineer for Willamette Dental Group. “With Ignite, our team can monitor the database, identify slow-running queries and use that information for optimizing the applications.”

Ignite for SQL Server, Oracle, VMware, DB2 and Sybase is the one monitoring solution that identifies, analyzes, and resolves all of the performance problems affecting applications and users. Unlike other software, Ignite doesn't just show health metrics, it applies wait-time analysis to correlate the most important performance data to build a complete picture of the database performance for the DBA, developer, and DBA manager.

Additionally, Ignite gathers real time session data, server resource levels, and query information. It analyzes historical trends of response time over different dimensions – such as wait event, program or partition. Then Ignite correlates the data to lead the DBA through the most important problems and solutions.

“Willamette Dental Group is a great example of how Ignite can be an easy to use, yet powerful tool to help companies with their overall IT environments,” said Tony Kraayenbrink, Confio's account manager. “With Ignite in place, Willamette can solve issues and get back to working on its strategic initiatives, which are developing technology resources that help the company provide excellent insurance coverage to its customers.”
