Navicat Premium

Navicat Premium is a very well-rounded tool with a reasonable licensing fee given its feature set. It is primarily suited for technical resources who must work with a variety of different database systems, but who may not be database or command line tool wizards. However, its query building and job batch scheduling feature support end-users as they build competency, and it continues to hold its value even as users outgrow their training wheels.Navicat is probably not so appropriate for DBAs and others for whom database development and management is already a career path; these folks have their preferred toolsets, both vendor-supplied and homegrown, and they might consider the additional licensing cost to outweigh the value they'd personally get out of Navicat.

It is best suited for batch jobs processing databases and maintains on-premise infrastructure. It will only be less appropriate if the organization or company is completely running databases on a managed cloud platform as there are available tools for monitoring systems health. However, it is also useful for cost optimization for cloud database users. It is also beneficial to operations to easily pinpoint the performance related issue and prevent ping pong with developers.

Pros

Navicat Premium

  • Access via standard html
  • Alert notification
Maurice Samuels | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Top N SQL queries.
  • Outstanding UI for rapid examination and drill down to detail data.
  • Intuitive UI design - better than any other product in its category.
  • Enabled us to immediately shift DB related performance matters first to developers so that our DBA's can focus on more important matters.

Cons

Navicat Premium

  • Navicat Premium's documentation can be hit-or-miss, as there are several versions available, and it's not always clear which documentation is current for the version at hand.
  • Navicat Premium's query building interface is not as easy to use or feature-rich as standard IDE and text editor tools, and I've had some issues in the most recent release build with queries auto-running in the middle of making edits, causing a lack of responsiveness in the inbuilt editor -- however, Navicat offers users the ability to edit queries via an external editor, which mitigates these issues to some degree.
  • In the data browser view, paged data navigation sometimes behaves unexpectedly or fails to work whatsoever, requiring a session restart to correct.
  • The process of saving a data export file is cumbersome, requiring navigation through several windows, and I believe it could be significantly streamlined to improve user experience.

  • Can't think of any feature or ops related issues. Prior complaints have all been addressed in newer updates.
  • Only main complaint is cost -- we would adopt for other servers if the incremental cost wasn't so high for a few additional instances (we have 3 servers we would like to use DPA with, but can't justify the x3 pricing per instance).

Very robust online community and well as excellent support staff. Easy to follow video tutorials. Detailed sample configurations are provided with guided walk-throughs via remote classroom instruction. Very fast response from support staff. No internal hires were necessary for support as vendor support staff fully met all technical expertise. 24/7 incident reporting and tracking is great.

Alternatives Considered

Navicat Premium

While Sequel Pro is a great shareware tool, it's limited to MySQL databases; while our department does use MySQL databases, we also use Oracle databases, so Navicat Premium's multi-product support is an absolute requirement.Navicat Premium also provides data browser support, including filtering, to empower less technically-minded users to query and manipulate databases, an option not available in Sequel Pro. And the job scheduling and batching features of Navicat Premium further distinguish it above the admirable, if limited, Sequel Pro.

Idera looks like they are headed to a similar end product. However, their product is not as mature. Solarwinds Database Performance Monitor is an acquisition of an already mature product upon which they added value by integrating it with their extensive software base and their amazing community. I haven't found any other products that do wait based sql analysis.

Return on Investment

Navicat Premium

  • Similar features to OEM provided very easy to use, out-of-the-box functionality.
  • No large infrastructure changes were needed to deploy and install.
Maurice Samuels | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • DPA is licensed per instance analyzed so, for us, only the higher priority database servers are monitored.
  • DPA is not dependent on Orion, but integrates with it. This means if you don't need all of the cool features of Orion and want to just pay to monitor the database instances then you can install it all by itself.
