Overall Satisfaction with DemandTools

We use DemandTools across our entire organization. We have used it to migrate and merge Salesforce orgs into one org, cleaning data, merging accounts and contacts that are duplicated. We also use it for quick analysis of objects and fields to determine usage and review data hygiene efforts. For those with an engineering or data science background, this tool is a perfect mix of extraction, analysis and ability to write back to records.
  • Ability to save scenarios that I can then train others to use to help maintain our data.
  • Error and change logs that let you review errors and issues.
  • Ability to connect across lookup fields to better analyze and tie together data.
  • Scrolling in the field menus could be improved to utilize the mouse wheel.
  • Some built in help for using formulas in Mass Impact.
  • No ability to work across objects in mass Impact, changes can only be written to fields of the chosen object.
  • It allows a small team or even one person to do a majority of data integrity tasks. It is very automated and structured.
  • The speed of analysis is fantastic, many questions I am asked about our data can be answered in a few minutes.
  • We are in the early stages of our Data Hygiene program, but DemandTools is allowing us to automate cleaning and upkeep processes, which allows us to tackle more issues.
I have looked at SOQLX and Workbench for some of our basic queries and updates. I am normally a Mac user and only use a PC for Demand Tools. I use the other tools as they work on the Mac.
Data deduplication is a great place to use DemandTools. It has logic to select the master record/field and gives a great user interface to manage the deduplication. There is no plotting or visualization of the data, it is a tool for looking at data in tabular formats with grouping.
