dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

This is completely dependent on job function. If you need to just view/edit data, then this tool is hands down the most intuitive and easy to use for that purpose. Our support team will greatly benefit from the ease of use for sorting, filtering, and viewing data. However, for a development role it would be better to select a different tool unless, of course, that developer was trying to find data issues or see what the data looks like after operations have run.

Spyder is suitable for a company that either does not have a considerable budget or does not want to spend on the tools that cost a crazy amount of money. In the meantime, have a group of real data scientists/data engineers to perform the data science analytic work.

Pros

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • Intellisense is rock solid.
  • Sorting, filtering, and grouping are super easy by just using the grid columns. No having to write queries!
  • UI is super intuitive.
  • There is a master-child detail designer where you drop tables into the designer, link up their relationships (whether there are foreign keys or not), and then you can view the linked data.

  • Familiar.
  • Line execution.

Cons

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • No table/database designers (yet). They have said it's coming.
  • No way to create scripts to create the database/tables that other tools have. This makes it difficult for developers to use to generate DDL scripts.
  • Data export does an individual insert per row of data, which is a little inefficient. Other tools will do a single insert for a configurable amount of rows per insert statement.

Spyder

  • Old interface
  • Not easy to change ENV
  • Only work with python

If your question is related to Python, you can find most answers almost everywhere by only searching Google. However, if the support you need is only related to Spyder, you might find it is a little bit hard to navigate down since the user base for Spyder is not too large.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

While DBeaver ended up being the goto for our development team, everyone else is going to be using dbForge Studio. The UI was hands down much easier to get used to, and the sorting/filtering options make it super easy for anyone to view the data the way they needed it. You don't need SQL query knowledge to use this product. DBeaver DOES have a master detail type data view buried into some right click menus, however, you can't just link up a bunch of tables and see/scroll through master records and have all the child tables update. It's useful, but not as useful as dbForge Studio.Valentina was just way too hard for people to navigate and use on a daily basis.

For PyCharm, if you choose the professional edition, you will have to pay an annual fee for it. Even your company is allowing those expenses. You might find it is still not worth it to pay for that since you can get a free community version for free or the Spyder for free.

Return on Investment

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • Saved a TON of time when looking at massive amounts of parent/child data by allowing us to just use the master-detail browser.
  • Very little training time needed for employees that are already used to using SQL Management Studio. This is a proper Windows UI application.
  • Very cost effective to purchase the standard edition for every employee that needs it, but the free edition does most of what they need too!

  • Easy to use.
  • Quick switch from R.
  • Hard to manage env.
