We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We can customize any workflow and we also like the business domain modeling that can be done."
"The best product for working with Oracle databases for support, checking and loading data."
"The most valuable feature is the navigation within the UI, where you can right-click on an object in an SQL query and go right to it, versus going through all of the menus to find what you are looking for."
"Toad has a lot of features that are very useful, fast, and well developed."
"I find Toad easy to use and I love the Workspace feature, which allows me to set up projects so that I can open SQL files applicable to what I am working on at any particular time."
"A quite simple feature that I have not encountered elsewhere is the "Make Code" feature. I can easily export a complex SQL statement to a programming language. This is a great timesaver as I do not have to type in all of the escape/concatenation characters just to create a SQL statement in C# or C++."
"I would like to see it become mobile-friendly."
"There may be an issue with processing limitations but this cannot be confirmed as a problem with the product or with the newest releases."
"The way the dialog boxes appear can be improved."
"I would like to see an improvement in the performance because opening the browser and the editor should be faster."
"There should also be a better "cancel query" option as sometimes one cancels a query, but then it still might run for a long time, and then one has to crash Toad in order to cancel the query."
"Once in a while, I may encounter a memory exception and have to abort the application. On a few occasions, the file that stores the saved connections for the New Connection window will become corrupt and I will lose all of my saved connections. I am not sure if that is a Windows or TOAD issue, but it has happened to all of my developers at some point or another."
"It's a very expensive solution."
"There are paid and free-for-use versions of the product."
"The professional edition is about $1,000 AUD ($700 USD) and the developer version is about twice that much."
"In my opinion, this solution is a little expensive, but I understand that good programs cost more money."
"My advice is to try to use the three-year maintenance agreement if possible."
