Education Dynamics Selects Confio Software for Database Performance Management


Boulder, Colo., August 28, 2013Education Dynamics, Inc. has implemented Confio Ignite to help improve SQL Server performance across the organization. With Ignite, Education Dynamics has been able to easily isolate overall performance degradation and reduce turnaround time on performance-related database issues.
As an industry-leading provider of network, communications and technology solutions for schools and teachers, as well a provider of specialty Student Information Systems technology solutions for schools, Education Dynamics relies on its databases to be a critical backbone of the entire organization. Poor performance can affect employees’ abilities to do their jobs and can lead to poor overall customer experiences. Therefore, Education Dynamics’ database administrators require the most flexible and useful support tools to ensure their databases deliver as promised.
  “With Ignite mapping our performance trends, I was able to see newly developing issues and explore the waits associated with it,” said Shawn Therrien, database administrator for Education Dynamics. “The day after we deployed Ignite we were able to pinpoint a massive bottleneck which was a new query that I hadn’t seen ranked before, derived from an improperly filtered code change. Ignite pointed out the issues and showed exactly what SQL text was taking so much time.”
Ignite is a database performance monitoring solution that improve service and reduces the cost of operating Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 and Sybase databases in physical or VMware environments. Ignite also enhances integration between teams, creating a more fluid DevOps environment in enterprise organizations.
“I’ve become far more proactive in adjusting performance before complaints come in,” continued Therrien. In addition to troubleshooting performance issues, Education Dynamics has plans to use Ignite as a development tool as well, so performance management can be part of the development process.
“Education Dynamics has tailored its solutions so that teachers can focus on students, not on the technology,” said Rich Adams, Confio’s account manager. “We’re gratified that Ignite is part of their overall technology environment and that we can help Education Dynamics be as successful as possible.”
