DBArtisan

DBArtisan is functional and suitable for any sized organization that needs to monitor its database resources and running queries.

DBeaver

Great tool for developers to use to dive into their databases. Not so great if you are a die-hard Windows user with expectations of a SQL Management studio replacement. This is the less suited tool for people looking to just view and edit data. If you need to generate any scripts or import and export data, this is the tool to use.

Pros

DBArtisan

  • User interface is easy to use, and in some ways better than Toad. The left hand side shows all databases, and you can drill down to instance, storage, schemas, tablespaces, and performance views. The right hand side displays the details of the selected object.
  • This is the best tool if you want to manage multiple RDBMS platforms in a single tool using the same familiar interface. Other third party tools can do it also, but it's not nearly as integrated as this, and may require additional plug-ins installed. DBArtisan excels at this, and can perform cross-platform data migrations easily.
  • It has different DB analysts, which can help diagnose issues with performance, optimize storage, detect fragmentation, and plan for capacity growth. For almost any action you want to take, you can generate the DDL for preview, and/or schedule it to run at a specific time.

  • Export entity-relationship schemes.

Cons

DBArtisan

  • Locks up far too often
  • Licensing structure is expensive

DBeaver

  • Sometimes it's clunky and slow.
  • One time it made changes to prod without me asking it to do anything.

At the moment, from our company we have not had to try the DBeaver support service, so we cannot answer this question. We understand that the paid version will offer a much better service.

Alternatives Considered

DBArtisan

DBArtisan does not have an in-depth performance analyzer for databases.

DBeaver

MySQL workbench from MySQL only supports MySQL databases and it only provides basic functionality. On top of that, the user experience could be quite confusing for first-time users. SSMS from SQL server doesn't support inline editing nicely. The view for inline editing and view data is different, making it uncomfortable to use. All in all, DBeaver is the best tool when you manage a lot of databases with different types.

Return on Investment

DBArtisan

  • It has a positive ROI on our organization. It's better than OEM and SQL Developer. Although the license could be expensive, it is perfect for large organizations, especially with multiple RDBMS platforms.
  • Most features are redundant between DBArtisan and Toad. I would not recommend using both if you already own one of them. Just download the trial for the one you're not using, and see what works best for your organization.
  • DBArtisan is great for DBAs and would be my personal preference. Toad is good for developers and DBAs alike but I feel like sometimes the interface is too busy and too clumsy to use.

DBeaver

  • Saved our development team hours of work handcrafting database deployment scripts by generating DDL scripts for us.
