Overall Satisfaction with Toad Data Point

My team (IT Reporting & Analytics) is the only group within our organization that uses Toad Data Point.

We use this product to analyze and track issues within our analytics environment. When needed we use it to develop and manage functions/procedures and packages to enhance the analytics functionality of our environment

  • We use Toad Data Point to analyze data structure and the quality of data within our analytics environment.
  • It allows us to review, create, and modify programs within the Oracle database
  • I find the explain plans that can be generating difficult to use, and should provide better suggestions as to how to improve performance
I like Toad Data Point being more designed to work with non Oracle databases
We usually use Toad data Point with an Oracle database. However, it gives us the flexibility to access other data sources as needed
We haven't purchases extra and do not have the sharing functionality

We receive calls from our functional areas complaining about inaccurate data. Toad makes it easy to track the data's progress from our ERP to the Analytics environment. This allows us to determine quickly were the problem lies and the ability to correct mistakes.

Toad Data point is not well suited for less technical users.

  • If you are familiar with using SQL and PL/SQL this system is easy to use. Otherwise it can be confusing. The feature to select an object and find out all information regarding it is the one I use the most
  • I find the explain plans difficult to use and understand, especially if you are not experienced with them.
