Aginity

Aginity is well suited for writing ad-hoc queries and data analysis, having all of the features that data analysts come to expect in a database querying tool. Aginity is also great for basic operation and management allowing an engineer or DBA to store multiple databases and credentials, see how tables are distributed or sorted, and see table sizes and row counts. However, for more advanced database management another tool or the RedShift console is still required

Google Charts

Google Charts is well suited when you have a lot of data coming from an Excel, CSV file or even a database table and you need to render it inside a website. You can provide a well-looking interactive preview of all your data. Google Charts also works great on mobile and tablet environments. Another great scenario is to use Charts to show network usage statistics inside a web application.

Pros

  • Query auto-completion
  • Database exploration including schemas, tables, columns, distribution keys, sort keys, etc.
  • Common scenario query samples, and easy access to table DDL
  • Table size operational report
  • Free community edition

  • The GeoChart component is great if you need to render a map with data. You can customize it with different colors, regions, formats and everything in SVG format.
  • Google Charts has a very detailed documentation full of examples. The docs are also always updated with the latest version of the API and you don't have to google for extra information on other development websites.
  • The ability to connect Google Charts to an external database using any language or technology thanks to the JavaScript API.

Cons

  • It would be helpful if the table size report could make it more obvious which tables need to be vacuumed. You can figure it out with the report, but can't just glance down a list.
  • Error message windows often auto close before you can read them leaving me hovering my finger over the print screen trying to capture them.
  • The auto-complete feature is a bit finicky. Many common scenarios which happen while writing a query by hand such as an unclosed parenthesis can cause the auto-complete not to trigger.

  • The look and feel of the rendered charts should be updated, they are still using flat colors and they do not seem to follow the latest trends in web design.
  • It is hard to implement for non-technical users.

Google Charts was used in 80% of our work. It was a piece of our core product.

Alternatives Considered

Like all of the other various SQL querying tools that I have used, the Aginity Workbench for RedShift has a free community version. Although unlike many of the other tools that I have used, Aginity feels like a tool that I would be willing to pay for. It is feature rich and stable.

Google Charts offers a wide range of possibilities, and it is precisely on this issue that it stands out above other libraries such as JavaScript and jQuery. The API being unified provides us a great advantage in ease of use and standardization of code. There are some reports where JavaScript or jQuery libraries are better, but the cases are not enough to discredit Google Charts as a mature tool in managing graphical reports.

Google Charts, being a Google product lets you enjoy your access policies and collaboration through its authentication process. It is very similar to Google Maps or other APIs belonging to Google in that aspect.

Return on Investment

  • Since the tool is free it doesn't take much to get a positive ROI.
  • Since RedShift is a PostgreSQL derivative, tools designed for that DB can be used to access RedShift. However, it is much nicer to have a tool that is RedShift aware and understands the slight differences.
  • Query auto-completion makes writing queries much quicker and less error prone.
  • The database management features are a nice plus that many comparable tools for RedShift and other databases don't provide.
Jordan Squire profile photo
  • Not having to develop our own in-house library.
  • Fast installation and implementation on existing websites.
