CLion

It's a great fit if you’re looking for a user-friendly C++ IDE; comfortable with using Vim; looking for a fast, intuitive UI; or teaching your students C/C++. It wouldn’t be a good fit if you’re more comfortable with command-line based IDEs or planning to code in multiple languages, as it only supports C and C++.

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

This software is perfect for general management of SQL Server databases and includes a powerful and intuitive GUI for SQL development--it is much more user-friendly than SQL Management Studio, expanding upon this product with many missing features. The query builder/designer is superb and database scripts are very easy to generate.

CLion

  • Simplifies collaboration of coders in case of extensive source code base.

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

  • Does not support NoSQL, not a huge deal breaker but could be useful to my application.
  • Some functions could be made more automated like drag and drop. Not a huge issue though.

CLion does everything I ask it to do. For me, Unreal Engine 4 compatibility was essential and Epic Game and JetBrains delivered a solid alternative to spending a huge amount of money on the "standard" IDE for game development on Windows. The user interface is sharp and modern without all of the silly frills many software suites now employ. It integrates well with source control systems we use and also works well, as expected, with other JetBrains development tools and assistants.

I was not forced to get in direct contact with CLion support. However, it is quite clear that they are doing a really decent job when it comes to providing assistance to their customers. Updates, including bug fixes, are being roll-outed in a reasonable manner, and bigger upgrades always include some interesting features.

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

Prior to dbForge Studio for SQL Server, I have only ever used SQL Server Management Studio to manage SQL Server databases. dbForge software, in my experience, is much easier to use, more intuitive, and hence more productive, speeding up most database-related tasks such as designing databases themselves and writing complex SQL code.
