dbForge SQL Complete

If you're not in a database management app every day, dbForge SQL Complete might be overkill for you. I know some of my team members are just as happy with Azure Data Studio and a few extensions. I walk through a lot of production support issues, so being able to clearly tell which environment I'm working in, at a glance (QA, dev, staging, prod backup, etc), is a huge help for me. I also pick through generated SQL from an ORM, and dbForge SQL Complete makes it easy to comb through that.

dotConnect for Salesforce

Scenarios best suited for dotConnect for Salesforce:
  • Mid or small-size companies with a very small team of staff can now easily manage their clients and their data.
  • The ease of deployment and consistency makes way for a more robust and reliable platform for the companies and their clients.
  • The use of cloud apps makes integration for companies easier to maintain, upgrade or install.
  • With the integration of SQL engine, hiring & training (if required) of new employees are easier.
Scenarios where dotConnect for Salesforce is less appropriate or not suited:
  • Companies working on another platform apart from Microsoft would have no option or find it hard to run and deploy dotConnect for Salesforce.

Pros

dbForge SQL Complete

  • Intellisense - it's not just what columns are on what tables, but foreign key navigation as well, which makes writing JOIN statements a breeze.
  • Formatting - I think most developers doing any kind of database querying like to see cleanly formatted statements, and dbForge SQL Complete formats well out of the box but also allows you to customize the formatting options to a really detailed degree.
  • Tab colors - this sounds like a small thing, but when I'm opening multiple database server connections, being able to tell at a glance which open tabs are for which connection is great. You can manage this to a degree in SSMS without dbForge SQL Complete, but it's a nice touch.

Cons

dbForge SQL Complete

No answers on this topic

dotConnect for Salesforce

  • It can be slow but at the same time can be managed by considering other external factors like system compatibility, network & firewall issues.
  • Requires dependencies on certain tools and that may bring some unexpected compatibility errors.
  • Entity framework feature seems to be a bit lagging behind MS-SQL.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge SQL Complete

Redgate has some great tools for database work, but ultimately what fit best for my needs and use case scenarios was dbForge SQL Complete. I felt like I had to have multiple Redgate tools installed to achieve the same thing as having dbForge SQL Complete installed. They're not directly analog tools, so that makes sense, but for what I do, the better tool was SQL Complete.

dotConnect for Salesforce

We had been using an outsourced company for such projects until we decided to hire our own team and do all of this DB work in-house. So this was our first year of experience with this product. So far, we're very pleased, as are our clients.
