Pros and Cons

  • Navicat Premium is a great tool for managing multiple different database connections, as it supports a wide variety of database systems, including MariaDB, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, and SQLite databases. Credentials and network information are easily configured and stored for multiple connections.
  • Navicat Premium allows users to define and store queries for reuse, and it supports advanced job scheduling options, allowing the construction and invocation of singular and batched jobs. I use these features to run periodic schema audits on data warehouse tables to ensure our department's data dictionary remains accurate.
  • Navicat Premium provides a robust data browser view that allows users who are not SQL experts to quickly and easily filter datasets, and directly add, update, and delete table rows.
  • 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.
