What is most valuable?

* Its ability to reference and link to components from any diagram. * The vast number of frameworks supported to get started with modelling.

How has it helped my organization?

It has not improved our organization mainly due to the poor diagramming capabilities within the product, which are outdated and look like Visual Studio 2005. As a result, our architecture team constantly reverts back to Visio diagramming.

What needs improvement?

Improve the following: * Report builder * Diagramming capabilities * Connector routing and layout algorithms * Inconsistent UI elements must be tidied up with the toolbox gaps removed. * Alignment and button sizes need to be made consistent.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Whatever database issues I have faced, I have solved them with the Quest Toad product.

What needs improvement?

Maybe it could be optimized by using less RAM memory. Also, this product may have stability issues.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm a developer and don't know much about pricing. The license is on our company, but I guess it's the most expensive database IDE.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have tried Oracle SQL Developer before, but I prefer to use Toad. It really is faster to build solutions with Toad.
