    PERFORMANCE TUNING: PEOPLE, PROCESSES AND TECHNOLOGY | Jeremy Kadlec

    All too often, organizations attempt to resolve DBMS performance
    issues with a quick fix or magic bullet to keep the business moving
    ahead of the competition. Jeremy Kadlec shows that there is more to
    tuning than just the technology.

    Can you predict performance problems?

    You can manage your Oracle database with native tools, but only Quest
    Central(R) for Oracle can predict and prevent problems before
    performance suffers. Find bottlenecks fast with extensive diagnosis
    and performance analysis. Then fix them with automated SQL
    optimization. Only Quest Central gives you complete performance
    analysis.
