What is most valuable?

Ability to drill down queries, and wait times using the Query Advice Dashboard.

How has it helped my organization?

What other advice do I have?

I am really happy with it. There's continuous improvement and updates that are taking place. They do a lot of betas. They seem to listen to their user community. It does what it says it's going to do. It does it really easily. To me, that's… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were looking for something that was going to be usable not just to our database administrators, but to the enterprise as a whole. We didn't want something that was really complex to use, that was going to be awkward for people. The DPA… more »
