Quest Software to enrich Microsoft Exchange infrastructures
Quest Software is turning on the Foglight for Microsoft. Quest's Foglight is designed to brighten MS Exchange version 3.0 and InLook version 1.4 by making them easier to manage and by improving overall service of global messaging infrastructures.
Quest says the new versions of Foglight for Exchange and InLook bring more functionality, scalability, manageability and speed of deployment for monitoring and administering Microsoft Exchange 2000 and Windows NT/2000 environments.
The new versions are a little out of "touch," but that could be a good thing. They feature a "touchless" architecture, which eliminates server-based agents and processes. That makes installation and configuration easier.
Foglight for Exchange and InLook are available. There's more information at

ASNA Visual RPG/Caviar to offer RPG access to SQL Server
ASNA says 2001 will be a great year. That's when the company plans to deliver integrated support for Microsoft's SQL Server.
That support will come in the form of the ASNA Visual RPG/Caviar. It's not something partygoers put on a cracker; it's something that will provide RPG programmers access to SQL Server through native RPG file IO using familiar RPG operation codes such as CHAIN and SETLL.
SQL-challenged? No problem. ASNA says AVR programmers will not need to learn SQL to get effective access to SQL Server. The skills they use today for AS/400 file IO will work exactly the same way.
AVR programmers will be able to write one set of Web, wireless and Windows applications that work concurrently with both the AS/400 and SQL Server.
