Whether you are planning to transfer your IT infrastructure to cloud, modernize your on-premise data platform, or migrate your SQL estate – don’t just “lift-and-shift”. Optimize instead.
By planning your modernization or migration smarter, you will avoid future surprises in capacity and costs. Data platform modernization projects offer a golden opportunity for significant optimization benefits in your data platform. It's also crucial to manage the future growth needs of the platform.
SQL Governor solves the challenges often faced in traditional methods of manual capacity planning. SQL Governor’s unique capacity planning ability is based on an international patented method in addition to machine learning. It takes into account workload trends, seasonality, and differences in the performance of source and target servers. If the capacity of the target data platform is planned using SQL Governor, you can achieve significant cost savings. You will also avoid surprises in the data platform’s capacity utilization during its whole intended life cycle.
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.

You have a scattered data platform, and not a clear picture on its overall condition level. The amount of manual work is high – you lack tools and automation, and the DBAs feel their work is insufficient. You have a risk of sanctions due to not having a proper inventory of licenses. A lot of time is consumed on reactive problem solving – i.e. firefighting – and prioritization is hard or even impossible. Does this sound familiar?
Without proper visibility to your data platform assets, you risk facing unwanted surprises that cause damage to your business. You are very likely overspending on licensing, hardware, or maintenance of the platform. If you don't take control over the situation, it will be impossible to plan and develop the platform to the future.
SQL Governor is ideal for taking control of your SQL estate. Use it for diagnostics and health checks to find out where the problems are, and what improvement actions are needed. Use it to plan the capacity of the platform based on facts and future trends. Use it for continuous life cycle management to forecast and proactively manage the platform’s capacity and performance and automate the tedious routine tasks.
As the amount of data, users, and applications grow, so does the size of the data platform. Are you also suffering from too high, and constantly growing, IT costs? Do you fear of getting sanctions from your software vendor, due to an incompliancy situation from infrastructure that is larger than the number of licenses?
