What's Redgate Foundry working on?

Inventory management

Knowing what work needs to be done (and how to do it) is easier said than done when you can't find all the things you need to work on.

As capability and capacity become cheaper, it gets easier for your organisation to spin up servers and databases that you may need to look after. The aim of this research project is to understand all the ways of dealing with this problem.

We're calling it "inventory management" (for now).


11.Apr.2017 🕵️ Research started

We're starting this research with an online webinar. A chance to talk through this area of interest, gather your thoughts and contemplate solutions.

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.

Audit and compliance

21.Mar.2017 💭 Concept demos available

Covering monitoring, auditing and reporting we've created concept demonstrations to explore 8 areas.

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.

27.Mar.2017 ⌨️ Prototype available

We’ve progressed SQL Data Mask into the next phase of prototype development. If you've got an Azure account you'll be able to log in and try it today.

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.

Data Platform Studio

03.Jun.2016 🚀 Beta launched!

Anyone with an Azure account can now use DPS to upload an on-premise SQL Server database to Azure SQL Data Warehouse.

Give it a try and let us know what you think...

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.
