Quest Software launches solutions for operations, protection and governance
Quest Software has launched a new Data Empowerment Platform, comprised of best-of-breed solutions for Data Operations, Data Protection and Data Governance.
The Quest Data Empowerment Platform is designed to help global enterprises bridge the gaps between their data infrastructure, security, and governance initiatives to empower CDOs, CIOs, CTOs, CISOs and other data-centric executives to mitigate risk and unleash more value, the company states.
It includes best-of-breed solutions in three distinct but interdependent pillars. They include the following and can be deployed anywhere to harness data from any source.
The Data Operations pillar enables organisations to create and maximise value from their data assets and the supporting infrastructure with data intelligence.
It includes solutions such as Toad, ApexSQL, Foglight, Spotlight Cloud, erwin Data Modeler, Toad Data Point, and SharePlex for: database development and management, data modelling, data systems performance monitoring and optimisation, SQL optimisation, and data preparation.
The Data Protection pillar helps organisations ensure data availability, meet data privacy requirements, and secure devices that transmit data or secure network-connected devices.
This encompasses KACE, QoreStor, NetVault, Rapid Recovery, LiteSpeed, and ApexSQL solutions as well as Toad Sensitive Data Protection products for: data security and endpoint management, data availability, data compliance, data compression, and data backup/recovery/restoration.
The Data Governance pillar supports organisations in establishing a sound yet flexible framework for awareness of and access to available data assets, guidance on their use, and guardrails to ensure data policies and best practices are followed.
Solutions within this include the erwin Data Intelligence and erwin Evolve products for: data cataloging, data literacy, enterprise architecture, and business process modelling and analysis.
Quest Software president and general manager of Information and Systems Management Heath Thompson says, "Few enterprises are truly data driven because of the silos that exist between IT and the rest of the business, hindering the ability to find, understand and use relevant data assets to drive digital transformation, cloud migration and other strategic initiatives.
"Our vision is to empower enterprise stakeholders, both inside and outside IT, with the data intelligence they need to mitigate risk and unleash more data potential and value.
"That knowledge comes from connecting and collaborating around data operations, data protection and data governance for greater data availability, literacy and accountability."
Thompson says, "Over the next several months, we will showcase the power of the Quest Data Empowerment Platform in new product innovation and deeper integrations between our Data Operations, Data Protection and Data Governance solutions.
"We are excited about this new strategic direction and believe it will deliver strong value for our global customers as they further their data-centric transformation projects."
