Quest Software takes top spots in every single category for the 2019 DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards, winning first in four categories. Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) provides insight covering data, information management, big data and data science via print and digital to IT and business stakeholders.

Why is winning DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards important?

This award is especially significant because the winning information management solutions are chosen by the people who use them. DBTA Readers’ Choice Awards has been held for several years running, with Quest Software historically taking first place. Out of the 10 categories in this year’s competition, Quest Software database management tools placed 1st in four categories, 2nd in five categories and 3rd in one category.

DBTA readers recently named Quest® tools #1 in:

  • Best Database Performance Solution: Foglight® for Cross-Platform Database
  • Best Data Replication Solution: SharePlex®
  • Best Database Development Solution: Toad® for Oracle Developer Edition
  • Best Streaming Solution: SharePlex

“A huge thank you to our customers for voting and ranking Quest Software as a top provider in every category. Our products help customers save time, reduce risk and allow their work day to be less challenging,” said Venkat Rajaji, Quest product management senior director.

Rajaji attributes the company’s success to having a responsive sales and support team that not only listens to customers, but puts into action what they hear, “We’re able to excel in the information management space because of the daily conversations our sales and support teams have with our customers. It’s listening to our customers identify their specific needs—in an ever-evolving, extremely demanding IT environment—that keeps our solutions at the forefront. Quest puts customer conversations first and those talks drive innovation, enabling Quest to quickly tackle technology trends that our customers face every day in open source, cloud, DevOps and GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation] compliance settings. We’re constantly asking, how can we improve and solve customer problems in an environment with rapid IT growth?”

“I’m extremely thankful for our customers! Their votes show their confidence and whole-hearted recommendation to use our solutions,” Rajaji concluded.
