About The Product
The evolution of the patchVantage product base is best described by CTO David McNish:
“The idea of using automated tools was born out of necessity. I was working on a large outsourcing project that was responsible for delivering a highly customized ERP system to the French company Rexel. We had a small team of DBAs and around 50 environments.
We didn’t have the bandwidth to do all the patching and cloning required. I developed a script which automated patching and elements of ERP cloning. We saved huge amounts of time but were then expected to deliver more, faster.
The concept lead to a full enterprise product being developed in Oracle & Java ,which handled complex patching and cloning and greatly improved DBA productivity. It allowed small teams to take on big tasks and deliver significant results.”
