Optimized Performance

Solve problems in your data platform faster. Proactively prevent performance problems from happening.
The problems in a data platform’s performance can be crucial to business. You can lose revenue due to discontinuity of service. You can lose customers due to services being slow or unavailable. You can lose operative data. Your employees can be increasingly unsatisfied or unproductive. So how to secure your platform’s optimal performance?

As an estimate, 70% of performance problems are related to bad code, and 30% are related to poor or suboptimal capacity planning and infrastructure problems. SQL Governor helps finding out the issues in both areas.

SQL Governor can help you find out where the problems are and start solving them faster. In acute situations, it can be used for finding the root causes of the problems and optimizing the platform’s performance. It offers extensive features for the proactive performance monitoring and optimization along with predictive alerting.
