dotConnect for Salesforce

Most appropriate when running queries from the client side, as the installation is rather straightforward and reporting is quite transparent, clear, and supportive of decision-making. We have known some extremely seasoned data researchers who had found dotConnect not as sophisticated as they would have liked.

Rider can pretty much be a drop-in replacement for Visual Studio in most scenarios. The development experience is wonderful, and I have rarely had problems with building, running tests, and debugging applications. You might need to keep around Visual Studio to publish or build installers, but the Rider team is constantly adding feature parity and new features, so the future looks even stronger.

Pros

dotConnect for Salesforce

  • Easy to use, client report-friendly
  • Easy integration when accessing multiple SQL servers on the client side
  • Pulls/connects easily from any application

Rider

  • Useful C# refactoring suggestions with indications of which options are available for different versions of the C# language
  • Deep understanding of the Unity game engine, which means that Rider can flag potential problems such as being careful with the use of the null coalescing and null propagation/conditional operators on types that derive from UnityEngine.Object.
  • Good searching and navigation facilities make it easier to understand unfamiliar code.

Cons

dotConnect for Salesforce

  • Can be slow which may be more due to the many FW issues involved when accessing multiple SQL servers
  • While it was easy for us to use, a few of our client-side Database teams wanted something more robust

Rider

  • We feel that C# support could be a bit better.
  • Performance on low-end machines is not the best.

Rider is a great IDE with extensive C# refactoring support and .NET-specific knowledge. This is great for building .NET applications but for our purposes, the Unity specific suggestions are really helpful.
JetBrains Rider is great as an editing and debugging environment. It reliably connects to the Unity editor and allows debugging, which some IDEs are not as reliable at doing.

Customer support provided by JetBrains is quite fast and effective. The issues we have encountered were solved within days, which we find reasonable and a very adequate time frame. Bug fixes are added to releases depending on their severity which makes perfect sense. However, we have not encountered any issue which we would consider to be a major problem.

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.

Rider is hands down smoother and way less glitchy than Visual Studio Enterprise. There are way more refactoring capabilities and spell check so that your code is readable, maintainable, and easy to follow. Since Rider is cross-platform, our developers are no longer constrained to only using Windows. We can now get a familiar development environment across Mac, Windows, or Linux!

Return on Investment

dotConnect for Salesforce

  • Immediately positive due to it's being pretty straightforward to install for every level of database staff
  • Immediately positive due to its extremely client-friendly reporting
  • It can be slow, so we have learned to always check the FW first as a rule-out.

Rider

  • Saved me a ton of time refactoring code, especially when editing web files in our project. The lack of full SAAS and JavaScript support in Visual Studio is a drain on time. Rider makes it super quick to get all the work done.
  • Their performance profilers that are built into Rider saved us hours upon hours of manpower tracking down memory and speed issues with our code. Highly recommended!
