Pragmatic Works Software Acquisition Expands BI and DevOps Offerings

SentryOne announced the acquisition of Pragmatic Works Software (PWS) last week, and now offers database performance management solutions that span the database lifecycle, from development through production, including a comprehensive set of SSIS integration tools and newer offerings for GDPR/compliance. As SentryOne founder and CTO Greg Gonzalez writes in his blog post, bringing PWS into the SentryOne fold creates "an unusually compelling combination." 


SentryOne and PWS customers won't see any disruptions. And later this year, SentryOne will unveil new packaging and branding of the PWS solutions as they're integrated into the SentryOne lineup.
