Redgate SQL Data Compare

If you plan to use Redgate Data Compare to automate data change between tables or SCD or similar, this is not the software that is right for you, Data Compare is a software that performs simply (but in an optimal manner) the comparison of data between tables of different databases on different environments or clone or mirror databases even on the same environment or server. Once the data is compared, you can select or deselect each line you want to update and then have the data alignment script prepared for it.

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.

Redgate SQL Data Compare

  • Simple and easy comparison of database data. Differences can be copied or synced from one database to another with a click of a button.
  • You can save "projects" so that you can easily rerun a previous comparison whenever you need to.
  • It has a very simple, easy to learn interface. I've never needed to read any documentation or watch any tutorials in order to figure out how to do something.

Cons

DBArtisan

  • Locks up far too often
  • Licensing structure is expensive
Zhann Goloborodko | TrustRadius Reviewer

Redgate SQL Data Compare

  • Redgate SQL Data Compare is a bit slow for large text data comparison between the text fields of tables when compared to enabling SQL search engine.
  • Sometimes some characters haven't been identified and compared when comparing data between two environments.
  • It needs better customer support for utilizing the tool, and cost factor also matter.

Redgate SQL Data Compare

We have used Symantecs Database Agents for Backup Exec and Veeam's Database Backup products. Symantec does not stack up well as compared to Redgate. Veeam is a considerable contender with their SQL Server Explorer. In some scenarios I would prefer to use VEEAM over Redgate, but Redgate is a very stable product that is extremely useful.

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.

Redgate SQL Data Compare

  • An incredible gain in terms of time
  • Speed in compiling the data update scripts
  • Ease in comparing tables
