Sequel Pro

It's a great tool when building the software, the ability to add SQL and No-SQL databases. Very convenient to write the queries and generate the filtered data we require. Gives the ability to export, import databases of various formats and generate reports from them.It might not be suitable if you want the data to be seen in a visualized manner

SAP SQL Anywhere

SAP SQL Anywhere is better than not using a database, let's be clear there! However, I wouldn't pick it as my first or even second or third choice. I'd recommend looking at other options. Largely, it appears less powerful both in terms of its robustness and general performance and in its implementation of SQL. The standard Sybase utilities provided are lacking in basic features, and the interactive SQL utility is quite horrendous. However, the great thing is it is an ODBC-compliant SQL-compliant relational database.

Pros

Sequel Pro

  • Table filters are simple and easy to use
  • I love the ability to install plugins: Export tables to Laravel migrations is one of our most used plugins
  • Super easy to connect to local Docker containers, Vagrant and remote DBs through SSH

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • Good performance with relatively large data sets - its cost-based query optimizer is particularly robust
  • ANSI SQL compliant
  • Supports T-SQL
  • Scales well between the desktop (single user) and client/server installations supporting 50-1000 users

Cons

Sequel Pro

  • It crashes CONSTANTLY. If you have more than one connection tab open and close one of them, it crashes. If you just have it open in the background, it randomly crashes. If you're using it, it randomly crashes. When you try to send a crash report, the CRASH REPORTER CRASHES.
  • Can be a bit slow.
  • No way that I'm aware of to query multiple databases in the same query.

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • I think it should be more user friendly for non-technical users.
  • More functional functionalities should be added to the object explore when working with a table to transform data/manipulate data.

It's open-source and very convenient to work with. I can easily import any database I want using a data dump and runt the queries on them to derive the data insights on the data. I might want to use Excel to visualize that, that might be one of the disadvantages.

Alternatives Considered

Sequel Pro

Sequel Pro's major competitor is Oracle's MySQL Workbench, a multi-platform MySQL server management software. While MySQL Workbench is more robust and feature complete, it doesn't beat Sequel Pro in terms of simplicity while providing all the power a pro would need.

SAP SQL Anywhere

I worked with Oracle for years during my career. I wouldn't select SQL Anywhere to implement a global ATM system with tens of thousands of concurrent connections, but SQL Anywhere is much easier to use and deploy and works very well in workgroup settings. Query performance often exceeds some Oracle versions without having to rely on database tuning.

Return on Investment

Sequel Pro

  • The user interface is great. Since all of our computers are macOS based, we can all use it and share knowledge with our colleagues
  • It enables me to make things in such a faster way that it enables us to spend our time with coding and providing more solutions to our clients
  • The workflow is much improved with the import and export feature, so we don't waste time with that kind of work.
Carlos Eduardo de Souza | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP SQL Anywhere

  • Skilled/experienced resources are less prominent than Microsoft SQL Server or even Oracle, or MySQL, so finding solutions and assistance, if needed, takes more time than it would with other platforms
  • You will need to find a good SQL query tool by yourself because the Sybase Central / Interactive SQL utilities are lacking in many basic features, and just generally have a bad user interface
