Toad Intelligence Central

Become data-driven with data preparation and data provisioning across data analyst teams. Today’s always-on economy is generating data at ever-increasing rates. You know it’s essential to be data-driven and use that data to react and innovate quickly so you can outpace your competition. What if you could simplify data preparation and data provisioning? What if you could more easily perform database analysis and share data insights with data analysts across teams? What if you could do all this and realize a time savings of up to 40%?

Used in conjunction with Toad® Data Point, Toad Intelligence Central is a cost-effective, server–based application that transfers power back to your business. Improve collaboration among Toad users through secure, governed access to SQL scripts, project artifacts, provisioned data and automation workflows. Easily abstract structured and unstructured data sources through advanced data connectivity to create refreshable datasets for use by any Toad user.

  • Connected users defines the maximum number of users who may be connected to Toad Intelligence
    Central at the same time.
  • Active users defines the number of connected users who may be executing queries or publishing
    objects at the same time.
  • Logical processors defines the number of sockets multiplied by the number of cores.
  • Program data/Toad Intelligence Central stores user information, data source connection information and mappings, snapshots and datasets. The location of this folder is defined when Toad Intelligence Central is installed. The default location for the folder is \ProgramData\Dell\Toad Intelligence Central\.

Tip: For higher numbers of active users, disk performance (on ProgramData\Dell\Toad Intelligence Central\) will improve significantly if the data is striped across multiple spindles to enable concurrent I/O operations. This is especially true when Toad Intelligence Central snapshots or data sets are heavily used.
