Overall Satisfaction with Toad for Oracle

We are currently using Toad for Oracle to monitor the various Oracle databases and their connections between each other. We also utilize the editor part to run SQL queries on our databases and to modify entries via script as needed. It allows us to see a visual layout of what entries we're working with instead of using command prompt / SQL plus.
  • Allows for modifying table data
  • Performs powerful, complex commands by clicking a single button
  • Offers tools for running complex scripts on tables and exporting for reports
  • There is a steep learning curve to use the software
  • Slightly expensive
  • Can cause significant damage to your databases if you are untrained
  • Hours saved by ease of access to various company databases
  • Hours saved by minimizing risk of corruption by accidental modifications/truncating of data
  • Increased efficiency and better response time for tickets
Toad for Oracle outperforms other programs like SQL Plus in almost every category. The only downside is the price, which makes it less appealing for smaller businesses. Their customer service is fantastic and they offer a very extensive knowledge base for most common issues that arise during installation and operation of the software.
If you have very large, complex databases, then Toad for Oracle is the software you need for monitoring and manipulating the data. However, if you have only one or two small databases with very little data, you might be better off saving the money and using a free SQL script compiler instead.
