Quest Software Inc. reported that itself in conglomerate with its Toad for Oracle offering assisted in enabling Florida Keys Community College maintain its SunGard Banner ERP system. The system delivers a variety of services from student registration and scheduling to financial aid. Toad’s cloud database capabilities were highlighted earlier this week as well.
The school has used Toad to improve the productivity of its small IT staff, which juggles management and maintenance of the Banner system along with all other IT-related tasks. The IT staff can respond to audit requests in minutes rather than hours, and the Quest solution allows the college to provide exactly the kinds of transparent data auditors want to see.
“With Toad, our productivity has increased dramatically,“ said Bryan Gilchrist, director of IT, Florida Keys Community College. “Without Toad, I would have to be dedicated to just managing the database, so I“™d need a dedicated programmer and a dedicated report writer. Toad saves us $120,000 in just those two positions and there is no other product I have that delivers that kind of ROI.“
