What is most valuable?

Even when a masking-on-demand feature was provided, we decided to write our own to meet the actual business needs. Currently embedded in an Oracle instance, it allows us to reach all kinds of RDBMS.

What needs improvement?

Areas of improvement: * Installation is too cumbersome. * GUI * Very clunky Windows 3.1 look and feel. Additional features: Unless I missed something, the direct connectivity to DB2i rather than going through a federated server.
