Likelihood to Recommend

MySQL

It is extremely well-suited for use cases across a broad range of applications such as e-commerce and business applications, and most small to larger organizations will find it well-suited for their data storage needs for a particular application. However, it is not designed for data warehousing and would not do well for analytics data for which a No-SQL option would serve better, and it is not ideal for geographical data management.

Quick Base

Quick Base is great for companies struggling to run their business off of spreadsheets. It's also perfect for companies who operate in niche industries or have complex requirements that can't be met by an off the shelf solutions.Most use cases are for business who intend to use the app internally to improve business processes. Creating applications that are intended to be used primarily by customers wouldn't be the best fit.

Pros

MySQL

  • MySQL is first off free to use, so that makes it a win right there.
  • MySQL is constantly updated and security holes are patched quickly and often.
  • MySQL is highly customizable and allows you access to all areas of the database to use it the way you want, plus there is lots of documentation online and other users sharing their customization experiences to help you along the way.
Andrew Shannon | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quick Base

  • Quick Base is easy to change, allowing us to adapt to our clients' changing needs. It's even so easy that sometimes project managers can make the changes themselves, rather than relying on a person dedicated to software development.
  • We don't have to worry about hosting and security. We can simply use it and share it with collaborators without going through all the red tape of exposing an internal server to outside parties.
  • The features of Quick Base allow us to do almost everything we need natively, so there's rarely a need to build custom solutions or hire third-party developers.

Cons

MySQL

  • Complex queries usually require many resources to obtain results. Other software does not present this situation.
  • MySQL has stopped its evolutionary process since its change of ownership, so the changes it presents have become irrelevant to the operation of the service.
  • Oracle has avoided releasing the code for the detection and correction of errors so the essence of open source has been disappearing
Carlos Alberto Pedron Espinett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quick Base

  • It's a database but we would like to use the tool for analytics due the type of information we have in it.
  • They're working on a true mobile app now but that has been something we have wanted.
  • System reports could used some better formatting.

With Salesforce being such a presence in business operations, we've had to "fend off" being asked to replace our QB apps with in-house/out of the box apps from Salesforce. With the cost of Quick Base and having to justify keeping it instead of Salesforce, it's been a challenge we've been fighting.

I give MySQL a 9/10 overall because I really like it but I feel like there are a lot of tech people who would hate it if I gave it a 10/10. I've never had any problems with it or reached any of its limitations but I know a few people who have so I can't give it a 10/10 based on those complaints.

Quick Base has done everything we have asked it to do and then some. Our original goal was to have one system for CRM that encompassed both the sales process and the customer management. We have gone w-a-y beyond that with analytics, project management, system bug logging, and historical effort reporting.

I gave it a 10, but it should be a 9.99. They do a nice job of keeping the application running. The application can drag a bit when you have thousands of users accessing the application concurrently. We experienced this with large scale implementations.

The support staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. I only had to get part way through my explanations before they had a solution. They will walk you through a fix or actually connect in and fix the problem for you--or would if you can allow it. I've done it both ways with them. They are always forthcoming with 'how to do this if it happens again' information. I love working with MySQL support.

I've recently had a support case opened within the week. Within 30 minutes I had a reply and was looking into resolve the issue. That day my issue was resolved and my connection between 2 apps were back on line!

The reason I'm not satisfied fully was not Quick Base's fault, but an internal problem. We were under funded, under staffed and users were allowed to avoid the system if they wanted. The amazing success that anyone used it should be looked at as Quick Base's strength

Alternatives Considered

MySQL

We actually use Sisense alongside MySQL as they integrate very well with one another. One of MySQL's flaws is its slow speeds on larger datasets which is why we began using Sisense. This way, we can organize several feeds into one source without having to do repetitious work on different sources.

Quick Base

Quick Base is a live database that is updated as users input data into it - SharePoint was previously used and we needed to push data into our SharePoint folder in order to update the data. It presented the challenge of multiple users being able to access and modify different records at the same time.

Return on Investment

MySQL

  • MySQL has been a vital cost reducing technology for smaller databases that do not require commercial support.
  • We have successfully sold the enterprise edition to customers who wanted to beef up the capabilities of MySQL compared to the community edition without rewriting an application to use a fully commercial database such as DB2, Oracle or SQL Server
  • MySQL has been extremely cost effective where we have deployed it. When compared to Oracle or MySQL, the savings has been substantial.
Christopher Weiss | TrustRadius Reviewer

Quick Base

  • Elimination of multiple points for data entry is the first impact that we have realized. This time saver is measurable and quite impactfull, it provides opportunity for people to spend their time on more valuable tasks.
  • Business process is something we are continually striving to streamline and improve and quite possibly eliminate is valuable to the business.
  • Some things are not as easily measurable because of the additional functionality which we did not have prior to QuickBase.
