dbForge Studio for SQL Server is a powerful IDE for SQL Server management and development in my company. SQL developers and DBAs uses the GUI tool to speed up almost any database experience, such as designing databases, writing SQL code, and generating meaningful test data. We use the dbForge Studio for SQL Server to deploy queries across different environments. It's very helpful
  • It's easy to use. DBAs and developers can use the dbForge Studio for SQL Server and no complex tutorial is needed.
  • Queries builder in a visual designer is awesome. Very powerful.
  • Database scripts are easily generated. And it is fast!
  • Should be more compatible with SQL Management Studio. Integration would be good.
  • Sometimes crashes.
It's good for if you need to: Edit and run queries in a new SQL document. Build queries in a visual designer. Run a large script without loading it into memory. Track changes of the production database. Create unit tests using a tSQLt framework. Source control database changes. Create database objects in a visual editor. Generate database scripts.
It's not so good if you need to: Manage user permissions or debug queries.

You need monitor your SQL server with dbForge Studio

I mainly use dbForge Studio for SQL Server for query management and query editing. It is not widely used in the organization. The software allows me to write SQL codes efficiently and it helps me monitor the running SQLs.
  • dbForge Studio has a clear user interface to monitor SQL server performance. It allows me to kill large or possible inefficient SQL quickly so it doesn't impact the server too much.
  • I find the SQL editor to be more friendly to use than the competitors, which seems generic. I can preview tables while writing codes.
  • Does not support NoSQL, not a huge deal breaker but could be useful to my application.
  • Some functions could be made more automated like drag and drop. Not a huge issue though.
dbForge Studio is well suited for any database environment that allows multiple users to run queries simultaneously. It is essential to monitor and track server performance so no one can impact or damage the current and scheduled jobs easily.
