A Smarter Way To Manage Your JD Edwards/Oracle Platform

August 15, 2012

FORT WAYNE, Ind., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Here’s some good news for companies running the JD Edwards software package with an Oracle database: now there is a single, automated software solution that can detect problems in your platform and tell you how to fix them before they cause a crash…and you get burned.

This new concept in software solutions is called the NightOwl(TM) JDE Oracle Health Check, and it was developed by DBConnect.

“For 15 years, DBConnect has focused on being the best in the world at managing JDE/Oracle environments,” said Roger Carter, company founder and president. “We have developed time-tested best practices for setting up and optimizing these database environments to help avoid business disruptions and deliver enhanced performance, all for a minimal investment.”

Specifically, the NightOwl(TM) Health Check automatically compares JDE/Oracle databases to this set of proven best practices in the following areas:

  • security and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance
  • performance
  • backup and recovery
  • database architecture and topology
  • JDE-specific areas, such as missing JDE indexes or excessive failed jobs

Then, the program generates a prioritized report, telling you exactly where best to invest your time, money and energy to fix or prevent problems in the database.

“The NightOwl(TM) Health Check is all about the proactive detection of weaknesses in the way the database interoperates with JDE,” said Carter. “This product empowers customers to intervene before there is a policy or regulatory violation, negative performance issues or even a hard fault, rather than reacting after a problem has already occurred. There is nothing else available like the NightOwl(TM) Health Check.”

The NightOwl(TM) Health Check is offered free of charge to existing DBConnect customers, free on a trial basis to new customers, or it may be licensed. It is one component of DBConnect’s NightOwl(TM) suite of products that helps companies manage key areas of their JDE environment.

DBConnect is the only service provider in the world solely dedicated to Oracle database management for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software system. Based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, DBConnect has provided project-based implementation support and outsourced JDE DBA services for small corporations and multinational, multi-billion dollar global companies since 1997.
