Founded over a decade ago in 2008, Vendita has grown leaps and bounds to become a big name within the IT industry. This is owed to its roots in software asset management, particularly Oracle Compliance and license management. For the better part of their history, they have been at the forefront of helping both public and private organizations of different sizes with licensing and compliance issues. During this time, they have been in partnership with big tech giants such as Oracle and IBM, which has helped them even more, when it comes to delivering for their clients.
From the working relationship with different partners, the team at Vendita was able to recognize repetitive patterns of the same problems within the tech world. This provided an opportunity to make an impact that would reduce pain points and increase the productivity of database administrators and organizations as a whole. And with that, a further effort was put into the development of their own proprietary software.
Thus, MAS (Master Automated Solution) was born. MAS is a proprietary database automation software that allows organizations to increase productivity while maintaining or even reducing costs and achieving standardization across all popular databases in on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. It allows you to manage your IT environment under a single intuitive interface, which simplifies the company’s database management needs and maximizes the value of your business processes, servers, and IT workforce.
Solutions Provided By MAS
As mentioned earlier, the inspiration behind the development of MAS was to provide a solution to some of the repetitive problems within the IT industry. After countless trials and tests, the developers were finally able to come up with a software that can provide concrete solutions to these repetitive problems. Below are some of the ways in which MAS can help your business.
One of the major problems most companies and organizations face is compliance to license agreements. More often than not, you find that a company is over licensed and under licensed at the same time. As absurd as it may sound, it is true. Most companies find themselves having taken different licenses to cover the same software function while they may be using another software without the required licenses. And the worst part is, these companies don’t even know it, so they are at risk of penalties for non-compliance while also spending a lot of money on licenses they don’t require.
MAS can help fix this problem. The software is designed to improve monitoring, streamline database processes, and add automation capabilities as well as compliance tools. All these functions help organizations save time and money, empower staff, close knowledge gaps, and increase overall productivity across the board. MAS makes it possible for organizations to self-audit, which enables them to understand better what isn’t licensed in their Oracle environment and what is. This way, they will be well prepared in case there is an actual audit by the people from Oracle.
The importance of data backup in a business cannot be stressed enough. Data is one of the most valuable assets that a company has, so losing it could result in huge losses in terms of revenue, and there’s even a good chance the company may be done for good. It is for these exact reasons that a company should do everything they can to preserve the data they have at their disposal. A well-integrated backup system can come in handy during such occasions. MAS provides precisely that. It allows users to perform backup duties on various database platforms through one single in-built interface. It doesn’t matter if you are doing Import/Export, Dump/Import, or custom RMAN processes; all of it can be scheduled through MAS.
Monitoring multiple databases at the same time is almost impossible. This makes the workload for database administrators that much heavier, and more often than not, companies will be required to employ at least three or more people, depending on the size of the organization, for that same activity. This adds costs to the companies and negatively affects the bottom line. That shouldn’t be the case because, with MAS, you are able to monitor multiple databases simultaneously with views for tables, objects, and storage. In addition to that, you can easily view trends and anomalies in business and data behavior, as well as automated email notifications for when a process starts, finishes, or fails.
The Master Automated Solution allows database administrators to monitor CPU usage and I/O levels and thus be able to see possible points of failure in production support. They can also easily view active sessions to locate top SQL statements, which allows the user to remediate inefficient code or kill the session.
How MAS Can Help Your Workforce
As we stated earlier, MAS is designed to reduce the workload for IT departments and free them up to concentrate on other revenue-generating activities. Below are the different ways in which MAS helps the workforce.
