On a forum like this you should post at the TOP of the article that this is not a free product so people don't waste their time reading about a cool product they will never be able to actually use.

Hi Krowley, sorry if I mislead you. It was not my intention. However I do like to point out that we offer a fully functional trial version, including free tech support, for 3 months and that our subscription plans starts at $195 which I believe is very competitive for an enterprise wide solution.

Cheers

Yes this would be a good enterprise solution. But our business is a non-profit that runs budgets close to the wire so there is no money for cool solutions like this.

Maybe my expectation that SQL Server Central is not a place where non redgate products will be advertized in the articles is un-reasonable.

My other thought when I saw this was that it could be a great solution to a specific problem I want to solve that involves people coming in, using an ipad console to fill out a simple form on a website, and when they submit the form it automatically prints out a copy at a printer that is located next to the ipad. Our web server is not on the same network as our printers so we can't install the printers on that computer, but your software could have solved this problem for me in theory.

We built the same thing here but only for automated email alerts. We call it NagBot.

In all honesty, it is a good product but it is also not that difficult to create it, I mean not difficult in the sense that to me, this product can be produced by an experienced developer within 1 month for most (if not all) of the functions. My personal opinion is that when the product needs 2+ person work years to develop, it has a selling value. Otherwise, big companies (usually with strong IT staff in house) will not buy into your product.

I would suggest the following product features in future:

1. Integrated with social media, esp. twitter / facebook.
2. Integrated with Exchange (and other SMTP servers) where people can send an email as an on-demand request to get what is needed.
3. Provide PowerShell administration interface

Good luck,
Jeff

Hi Jeff, thanks for your input. It is greatly appreciated.

We do have a Twitter Out and Twitter In (stream) feature that works in a similar fashion as the Email Out and Email In. We have considered integrating to Facebook as well and I agree that it can be a very useful addition.

I'm not sure if I understand your Exchange remark. What do you mean by " on-demand request"?

Cheers,
/Michael

I will write a blog in near future to illustrate my dreamed "On-demand database administration framework", which I am still conceiving and doing some proof-of-concept work.
