eServer Magazine, iSeries Edition Honors 2005 Spotlight Honor Roll Recipients

Orlando, Fla.—Sept. 17—eServer Magazine, iSeries edition recognized five companies that received the 2005 Spotlight Honor Roll status. To be awarded the IBM eServer Magazine, iSeries edition Honor Roll recognition, a product must achieve a score of 3.75 or higher when reviewed by Technical Editor Don Rima in the magazine’s Spotlight column.

After Rima obtains a trial version of the software and puts it through its paces, he assigns a numeric value based on a 4.0 scale. During the last 12 months, only five solutions achieved a total score of 3.75 or higher to obtain Honor Roll status. The five solutions, along with an excerpt of Rima’s review are below:

StarQuery from Symtrax, December 2004

Rima’s Comments:
“Think of StarQuery as Query on steroids. Add to it the capability to interface SQL into your selection logic and you’ll understand the potential power you’re dealing with.”
Score: 3.850

Route One, January 2005
formerly owned by OS Solutions, which was since purchased by Vision Solutions

Rima’s Comments:
“I was impressed at how easily this interfaced with my existing e-mail configuration. It took longer for the e-mail to leave my desktop and go to a target account than it did to set up the project to create the e-mail content.”
Score: 3.865

BOSaNOVA LTC-1000 Thin Client from BOSaNOVA, March 2005

Rima’s Comments:
“I liked what I saw and played with. The LTC-1000 is a fairly non-obtrusive little box that just hangs out beside my monitor and does its thing, connecting me to my servers and the outside world.”
Score: 3.751

TeamQuest Performance Software for OS/400 (TeamQuest Model and TeamQuest View) from TeamQuest, Inc., July 2005

Rima’s Comments:
“Frankly, I think if there’s a data point available in the performance-tuning package, it’s in this package. And you have in close to raw data or in many cases, it’s in a consolidated form where the grunt work has been handled for you.”
Score: 3.775

PowerLock Authority Broker from PowerTech Group, September 2005

Rima’s Comments:
“This (software is) … menu or command driven with a limited number of options to learn and keep track of. Frankly, you’ll probably set it up and then leave it alone, unless you’re adding users on a regular basis.”
Score: 3.775
