What's Redgate Foundry working on?

Data classification and discovery

As organisations begin to hold more and more data, the task of understanding what information is being held, how sensitive or business critical it is and importantly how it's being used compared to the permission granted when collecting it.

We're investigating the impact that regulation is having on the need to be able to understand and document this data.

We've produced a concept demo to explore the value of adding classification information to your data documentation.

SQL Server Asset Management

It’s never been easier for people in your organization to spin up servers and databases at will, meaning your organization can move faster. But it’s also getting more difficult to make sure those assets turn up on your radar to be able to look after them.

The aim of this research project is to understand the consequences of not knowing what assets make up your SQL Server estate (for you and for your organisation), and to learn more about how we could help contribute towards your strategies for dealing with this problem.

Audit and compliance

Today, the issue of data security is becoming more prevalent. Meeting regulations, both existing and new consumes time in IT departments.

We’re researching the way that these requirements impact on your development and data management practises. Our aim is to understand how Redgate technology could improve the way your organisation prepares for, and carries out audit activities.

The outcome of our research (read more about that here) is that we've begun developing SQL Census to trace and report on user access.

Data masking and generation

We're currently working on technology to improve the management of sensitive data, and synthesize more realistic data.

Help us create something that meets your data masking requirements.

Data Platform Studio

Easily migrate data from an on-premise SQL Server into Azure SQL Data Warehouse. Data Platform Studio makes your first data migration into Azure SQL Data Warehouse simple. We make intelligent choices that guarantee your data is migrated successfully first time.

That's less time worrying about migrating data and more time to evaluate Azure SQL Data Warehouse.

About Foundry

Foundry is Redgate's product research and development division. Based in Cambridge, UK, we're responsible for delivering the newest products and technology for professionals using the Microsoft Data Platform.

How does Foundry work?

Projects in Foundry begin life in different ways. Sometime they're things we've been thinking about for a while, sometimes it's a request we've heard from our customers and sometimes it's just some great new technology we want to try out.

Each project progresses through Foundry's four-stage product development process. At each stage the Foundry team is exploring the scope and potential for Redgate to develop a product.

🕵️

1. Research

In this phase we're usually trying to wrap our heads around concepts that are new to us.

💭

2. Concept

Once we've understood the scenario, we build some interactive concepts that explore potential Redgate solutions to the problems we've uncovered.

⌨️

3. Prototype

Once we're confident we've got a valid solution and a good reason to invest development effort, we create a working prototype.

🚀

4. Beta

When the prototype is sufficiently developed, we open up access to the product in a Beta phase. At the end of a successful Beta phase, the product graduates into Redgate's offering.
