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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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