dbForge Studio for Oracle

Whenever a user or DBA wants to compare schematics between two environments, dbForge is extremely helpful. This is useful during version or framework upgrades, a database upgrade, patch implementations, service package implementations, or any time to environments would be different.The time it would take to write and execute queries, and then compare is exponentially longer than it takes with dbForge, where this is done and you have an application that allows you to quickly identify incongruities.

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

It's good for if you need to: Edit and run queries in a new SQL document. Build queries in a visual designer. Run a large script without loading it into memory. Track changes of the production database. Create unit tests using a tSQLt framework. Source control database changes. Create database objects in a visual editor. Generate database scripts.It's not so good if you need to: Manage user permissions or debug queries.

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

  • dbForge Studio has a clear user interface to monitor SQL server performance. It allows me to kill large or possible inefficient SQL quickly so it doesn't impact the server too much.
  • I find the SQL editor to be more friendly to use than the competitors, which seems generic. I can preview tables while writing codes.

Cons

dbForge Studio for Oracle

  • The ability to parameterize searches more would be advantageous. For example, being able to specify to only look for certain columns, certain data type changes, etc.
  • The output reports from dbForge are very plain and could contain more detail, and perhaps be structured more like a pivot table form Excel

dbForge Studio for SQL Server

  • Should be more compatible with SQL Management Studio. Integration would be good.
  • Sometimes crashes.

Support Rating

dbForge Studio for Oracle

dbForge Studio for Oracle 8.0
Based on 1 answer
Although experience here is limited, as only one question has been asked and answered promptly, the registration and licensing process was very smooth and professional. There are forums online that discuss dbForge issues, as well as a Facts and Questions section on dbForge's website, so product support does seem to exist if needed.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Studio for Oracle

We found dbForge Studio for Oracle to be more stable and easy to use than both Toad for Oracle and RStudio, among others. There is still room for improvement, such as the MySQL debugger. In the past, we used MySQL Workbench, but the flexibility and robust tool set of dbForge Studio for Oracle won us over and there was no going back.

I did not make the decision to choose dbForge Studio for SQL Server. I personally like dbForge Studio because of my familiarity with the SQL server and the UI.
