dbForge Studio for Oracle

Overall Satisfaction with dbForge Studio for MySQL

dbForge Studio for Oracle is used mostly by our DBAs for administrative tasks, writing queries, etc. It was much more stable than any of the other potential solutions that we tested. It also allows us to synchronize data and schema for test cases, or to merging customized environments back into our core product for additional customization. Our Human Resources department was also looking into using this to manage their data as well.
  • It allows for easy synchronization between Oracle databases and schemas.
  • Installation and configuration was a breeze, so it provided a quick return on investment.
  • It runs quite well on standard hardware.
  • There can be problems when attempting to run it over Linux.
  • There were some formatting issues when Windows 10 came out, but they were addressed.
  • The full version was a little bit more expensive than we were hoping.
  • It has allowed us to save time and money by enabling our developers to write more efficiently.
  • Again, the ability to synchronize databases and schemas is invaluable.
  • The speed at which our developers were able to use the product to produce results was outstanding.
We found dbForge Studio for Oracle to be more stable and easy to use than both Toad for Oracle and RStudio, among others. There is still room for improvement, such as the MySQL debugger. In the past, we used MySQL Workbench, but the flexibility and robust tool set of dbForge Studio for Oracle won us over and there was no going back.
It is a great tool for synchronizing databases and schemas, especially when you need to take customized software for a particular client and bring it back in-house for additional enhancement requests. It is well-suited for environments where the easy-to-use GUI can provide almost instantaneous results with little or no training. It it highly scalable and can be used in one department or enterprise-wide.
