Our Company

At Advanced DataTools, our mission is to help our customers achieve their goals, and we are proud to be celebrating over 25 years of providing the best database design, consulting, and training services available.

The company was founded in 1993 by Lester Knutsen, who serves as President and Principal Consultant. In 1995, Advanced DataTools became a woman-owned business when Linda Knutsen joined the company as Chairman and CEO.

Why We are Database Performance Experts

After years of working with large-scale DoD databases, Advanced DataTools staff have a deep knowledge of the nature of data, database structures, and database security, and of how to store data in order to ensure rapid and flexible retrieval, manipulation, and reporting.

We combine this expertise with a constant eye on the computer industry to identify, test, and evaluate database tools and business-enhancing software, as well as hardware platforms and utilities in order to be able to consistently recommend the best suite of products to ensure the delivery of a high-performance solution.

In addition to delivering superior database and data warehouse applications, Advanced DataTools provides support for all aspects of an application's life cycle, from planning and development to performance tuning, maintenance, and training. Our “Performance Tune-Up” service can improve the speed and functionality of your existing database. Our customized, on-site training can give your staff the specific skills they need to better manage and tune your systems. We also offer public training in Hyperion Performance Suite (Brio), Informix, QIQ, and other database topics to further the professional development of the database community.
