Overall Satisfaction with DBeaver

DBeaver is used by me to work with SQL Server databases.
  • Identify types of DB connections by color code: development, testing and production.
  • Predictive typing, it is incredibly accurate and saves me a lot of time.
  • Jump between different simultaneous DB connections.
  • Navigate through the schema object tree.
  • Provide all the tools I need in one window.
  • Some icons are kinda small and difficult to understand what they do
  • The spanish translation could be better
  • I think there are many functions that could be useful for me but I don't know what they do
  • Reduced substantially the time required by database maintenance operations
  • Reduced the error rate when modifying database objects
  • Improved the speed of query creation for data analysis purposes
SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) developers should take a look at DBeaver to see how a real management studio application should be. In DBeaver you can tell that the developers really think about the way DBAs and database developers use database management tools. With SSMS, Microsoft tries to continue evolving an old and cumbersome application that does not seem to improve with each new version.

Do you think DBeaver delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with DBeaver's feature set?


Did DBeaver live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of DBeaver go as expected?


Would you buy DBeaver again?


It is the perfect sidekick for every day's database work with SQL Server (I guess with other databases as well). Whether you need to browse data, import/export, alter database objects, compare objects, view automatically generated database diagramas, and so on. I regret every day I spent using SSMS without knowing this tool existed.
