InShape for Oracle

We all know that the secret to staying healthy and fit depends on regular, routine exercise and good maintenance habits. The same is true for our database. But how can we ensure that our database stays in shape?

One of the most challenging tasks for an Oracle database administrator is to solve performance issues which impact business critical processes. InShape was designed from the ground up with performance tuning in mind, it divides complex database information into logically grouped categories.

Throughout the work week end-users interact with the database to conduct their urgent business activities. They insert new data and run complex transactions using a variety of applications that combine and integrate data from different sources. Sales teams enter new customer and pricing data; Business Analysts report on operational data stores, data marts or data warehouses to make decisions that achieve better business outcomes; managers keep track of their key performance indicators. InShape can profile these application specific queries for in depth troubleshooting.
