Overall Satisfaction with Oracle SQL Developer

My department and organization uses Oracle SQL Developer to use and manage Oracle Database 12c a better way. My team uses Oracle SQL developer, as it is a graphical tool which honestly makes it quite easier to not only use and manage Oracle Databases, but also train new junior DBAs to do the same. It's easy to learn and understand.
  • It's free
  • Very useful to organize different Oracle Databases or connections
  • Easy to use, user friendly, and quite intuitive
  • Not useful if you are not using Oracle Database
  • Quite slow even when using Oracle Database, many other faster products like this out there
  • No export feature, like a CSV or Excel format
  • ROI of SQL Developer is quite positive as it is very easy to use for database processing.
Have not considered using an alternative for this exact use, as we only use Oracle Databases for other Oracle products, for which it makes total sense to use other Oracle products, as they connect very well with one another.
Oracle SQL Developer is best suited while using Oracle Databases, may it be any versions or any Oracle Databases. But if you try using it with any other databases such as MariaDB or MySQL, it does not work very well, in fact it is quite useless. But I have to say, it is quite easy to use, and install.
