Overall Satisfaction with DbVisualizer

I use DbVisualizer to query RDBMS and non-relational data. For us, it solves the problems of determining a structure in an org that doesn't have a dedicated DBA role. It further helps our DBA-lacking org with evaluating query performance and updating live data.
  • Visualizing existing table relations
  • Query performance reporting
  • Multiple database support
  • Support other non-RDBMS structures--Dynamo, memcached, redis
  • An option when clicking in the tree to always open a new window
  • Import/address parquet tables
  • No impact other than my own productivity.
DbVisualizer is a more complete and more functional universal tool than IntelliJ's built-in SQL client. It supports more storage systems than SquirrelSQL or MySQL Workbench. I've also had a license for DbVisualizer since 2006, so there's a bit of inertia on my end.

Do you think DbVisualizer delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with DbVisualizer's feature set?


Did DbVisualizer live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of DbVisualizer go as expected?


Would you buy DbVisualizer again?


DbVisualizer is really useful where there's a JDBC connection to an existing data store and that data store supports a SQL interface. It's less useful, although functional, at many non-relational stores. I'd recommend it for small departments where the engineers need to poke around on an existing database. I'm not sure I'd recommend it at an organizational level since the use cases for DbVisualizer tend to be very team and data specific.
