RE: Senware AutoDBA

FWIW, someone from Senware presented a paper at IOUG 2002 titled 'Performance management from the ground up' (or somthing like that) which was a load of &*$% to say the least. Most of the audience (many on this list) walked out in disgust after the first 10 minutes.... (Does someone remember the 'green peas' story?) If their product is even twice as good as their rep, it would not be worth considering.

I am not blaming their desperate tactics however. Anything to sell a product in this economy :( Just came off a marketing call on the office phone for services I don't need!
