(PRWEB) August 25, 2005 -- sqlSentry, a leading developer of management solutions for Microsoft SQL Server, today announced that it has been honored twice in Penton Media’s SQL Server Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards.

sqlSentry was the winner in the Best Job Automation and Scheduling Tool category as well as the Best Alerting/Notification Software category. sqlSentry, a scheduling and notification management system for SQL Server, increases database administrator (DBA) productivity via an innovative visual user interface reflecting all schedule activity across the enterprise. It allows the busy DBA to significantly reduce the time spent on daily operational tasks and concentrate on the strategic management of their SQL Server environment.

“We are thrilled to receive these honors because they come from the DBAs and developers who work with SQL Server all day, every day. We listened to their requests for more insight, power and control over their SQL Server enterprise, then designed and developed sqlSentry to meet their needs,” said Ken Teeter, Vice-President Sales and Marketing at sqlSentry. “These Readers’ Choice awards are proof that we have met our goal of delivering the knowledge and productivity that busy DBAs need to ensure the optimal performance of their SQL Servers.”

“Recognition from customers in the industry is an honor and is the ultimate ‘seal of approval’ for the products that won,” said Michele Crockett, Associate Publisher, SQL Server Magazine. “The SQL Server Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards were started as a way for readers to choose and recommend the best technology products in the industry. The awards program gives readers the opportunity to voice their opinions and for leading technology companies to receive the recognition they deserve.”

Readers were asked to vote on their product preferences in 8 broad technology categories. The ballot included the following categories: Business intelligence products, development tools, disaster prevention/recovery, hardware, security, storage, training and certification, and SQL Server management.

“Few people know more about the best values in SQL Server-related products and services than SQL Server Magazine readers—the people who actually use the products and buy them on behalf of their organizations,” said Dawn Cyr, senior associate editor, SQL Server Magazine, and coordinator of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards program. “By voting for their favorite products and services, our readers have recognized excellence in the SQL Server market.”
