MindTouch's Deki “Kilen Woods”

MindTouch bills its Deki (formerly Deki Wiki) as an open-source enterprise collaboration and integration platform that helps information workers, IT professionals and developers collaborate and connect disparate enterprise systems and data sources. With Deki, businesses can connect and mash up the application and data silos that exist across an enterprise—including legacy systems, CRM and ERP applications, databases and Web 2.0 applications. Adapters are available for widely used IT and developer systems, such as SugarCRM, Salesforce, LinkedIn, MySQL, VisiFire, WordPress and more.

Software Workshop's ExtSQL

Enriching the vast MySQL ecosystem is the new ExtSQL, short for Extended usage statistics for SQL. The product is designed to provide DBAs with a simple tool for monitoring database activity by individual user, database, host or even connection. Software Workshop asserts that present SQL monitoring tools allow only gross monitoring at the server level. ExtSQL provides extra detail, including historical data, and makes it available from the command line. The ExtSQL server is designed to be a drop-in replacement for an existing mysqld or postmaster executable.
