      Great tool for developers to use to dive into their databases. Not so great if you are a die-hard Windows user with expectations of a SQL Management studio replacement. This is the less suited tool for people looking to just view and edit data. If you need to generate any scripts or import and ex...

        The ability to monitor, in real time, some new database servers we purchased is key to making them as effective as possible. We also needed visibility into inefficiencies surrounding our existing servers. Having a system with email alerts, AD integration, at-a-glance holistic dashboard views, and...

          My client organization is a big enterprise with thousands of Oracle Database instances. We bought unlimited organization level license of Toad for Oracle. This was done because almost everyone who works directly with Oracle Database used Toad, be it DBA, Developer, or Testers. We have been extrem...

            We use ER Studio Data Architect to manage physical model naming standards (especially in sensitive and sometimes ambiguous shorthand naming conventions within hospital settings) as well as all data models within the organization. Its ability to import ETL mappings and manage data lineage is a pow...

              We use OEM to monitor our database footprint, alerting us to issues such as downtime and compliance levels. At a glance we can the status of any of our databases, uptime, performance, last backups, patch level and other non functional details such as business group, location, application point of...

                        It is easy with SolarWinds DPA to see the database block chains and drill into what is the root blocker process. DPA is less detail oriented when it comes to the infrastructure side of data stores. When infrastructure provisions the SQL server I would like to be able to see for example if the par...

With the help of SAP replication terminology it is really very easy to replicate the real time data from/to different regions.
