Blue Turtle simplifies database complexities for Business Connexion

Blue Turtle Technologies (Blue Turtle) has been awarded the TOAD DBA (Database Administration) suite business by Business Connexion.

Hendrik Rheeder, Senior Manager: Database Management Services, Business Connexion, says: “Business Connexion’s requirement for a DBA toolset that could be used over multiple databases and customers, while simultaneously ensuring accurate reporting and information, was part of the criteria and a key deliverable. Blue Turtle’s Quest TOAD DBA toolset offering coupled with their ability to provide flexible pricing options suited our requirements perfectly.”

Martyn Healy, Marketing Director, Blue Turtle, adds: “Business Connexion identified the need for a database tool that could consolidate all the functionalities across disparate databases. The DBA tool had to have the ability to integrate, increase productivity and enable one to work proactively. The Quest TOAD DBA toolset met all their criteria as it automates maintenance, ensures optimal performance, and mitigates the risk of change.”

“Furthermore, we were able to utilise our resources more effectively by using junior DBA resources instead of senior DBA resources for the daily reporting side, thus maximising senior DBA resources time for strategic critical business. We have until recently predominantly used Quest Spotlight for diagnostics and pinpointing issues on the different DBMSes (database management systems). We have seen that a primary benefit and feature of the Quest TOAD DBA toolset is the quicker problem resolution,” comments Rheeder.

John Jenkins, Chief Executive: Services Division at Business Connexion, adds: “The commercial model allows us to offer SaaS (software as a service) to our customer base. We found the team extremely enthusiastic about the products, and the willingness from a supplier’s perspective to change existing costing models to accommodate Business Connexion was very encouraging. Blue Turtle is a key strategic software partner of our organisation, with several software implementations that are critical to our business.”

The solution is deployed and installed on individual workstations. Business Connexion will in turn use this solution for a number of their customers to assist with output initiatives.

Healy concludes: “The toolset is an empowering tool that reduces the time to resolution, thus adding to the bottom line. It is a diagnostic and problem resolution tool.”

Blue Turtle has been a Quest Software partner since 2003, with sound IP and strong customer base. Their Quest solutions include Windows migration, data application, monitoring and virtualisation.
