How has it helped my organization?

TOAD makes it easy to code and compile stored procedures. It is easy to find and edit code, and offers the ability to debug and test. It is a great tool that saves a lot of time. The real advantage is that it has a lot of components all in... more»

What needs improvement?

The one thing about it is that there are almost too many features and options; some we don’t even use. It can be overwhelming at first, but once the initial learning curve is over, it is not bad. For example, we don’t use the automation... more»

What do you think of Toad?

Valuable Features This product is fast to learn and a user-friendly tool. It's most valuable to me because of its great shortcuts. It really helps on development time. You can even define some quick assist codes and prefixes. Also, you can use this tool for comparing files, debugging, FTP file transfer, etc. • Improvements to My Organization Whatever database issues I have faced, I have solved them with the Quest Toad product. • Room for Improvement Maybe it could be optimized by using less RAM memory. Also, this product may have stability issues. • Use of Solution I have been using different versions of Toad since 2010. I've been using this version since March 2017. • Stability Issues Yes, I have still been facing some issues. Currently, with Windows 10, it...

What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

What do you think of Toad?

Valuable Features Running queries, because that's kinda important. • Improvements to My Organization It hasn't. • Room for Improvement The IDE is slow and, now, very buggy, Autocomplete being especially bad. • Use of Solution Years. • Stability Issues Lots. • Scalability Issues Probably, but that's a big question. • Customer Service and Technical Support Poor. • Previous Solutions Yes. I switched because SQL Developer was still in its infancy. • Initial Setup Complex. Despite requiring a key which only allows specific features, the installer still asks you to select all the features (from a big list), instead of hiding what you cannot have. • Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing It's way overpriced, even if it wasn't the buggy product it has...
