What is most valuable?

The feature that is handy in Toad is that I think it is best for working with Oracle. Currently, I'm using DBeaver, SQL Server, SQL Developer, and Postgres. We are using… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It just gives us another tool to use when working with clients to solve issues.

What needs improvement?

There is not a lot to be improved in Toad. I am not using the newest version because the older version works almost all the time. It is a limitation already defined… more»

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

Toad is a product which comes in several versions. When we know your base architecture and the needs of your company, we either buy the license or use the trial version… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used and still use many solutions as consultants. Some products solve different problems.

What other advice do I have?

Toad is fast and very convenient. You just need to choose what you want to create, configure all the items and objects, then just generate the scripts, test and you can… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated many products and continue to evaluate them. Toad is a popular one and well-known by Oracle users.

What is most valuable?

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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Only done a trial.

What needs improvement?

The price of this solution should be reduced. I like SQL Server Management Studio a lot so it has been hard to justify the cost for TOAD. However, if it is anything like… more»

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

The software is expensive but it is very good. I am currently using the trial version and I will probably purchase the professional edition. The professional edition is… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I did not use another database management solution prior to Toad, although Microsoft Access does give you the ability to do things like link tables.

What other advice do I have?

I have not used the SQL Server version a great deal, but I can say that when I used it with Oracle and comparing it to the Oracle Management Studio, Toad was by far the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No - I just loved the Oracle version when I worked with MARS.

What is most valuable?

I like a lot of the features in this solution including the Session Browser, Tablespace, SGA browser, good editor, it is to dificult to enumerate all features.

How has it helped my organization?

Toad has a lot of features that are very useful, fast, and well developed. It is a very easy and helpful tool for me and my work. It is the main program that I use, every day.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement in the performance because opening the browser and the editor should be faster. The limit of 100,000 lines when parsing trace files is not always enough, and I would… more»

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

In my opinion, this solution is a little expensive, but I understand that good programs cost more money. I find it acceptable, although my bosses may think differently. There are no costs in addition… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used other tools, but Toad is the best of them.

What other advice do I have?

This is a program that I like very much and I recommend for others. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

What is most valuable?

SQLBuilder really helps to play with the data and develop SQL queries to extract data from huge databases as per the requirement.

How has it helped my organization?

With Toad, all the users have the same database on the server rather than local individual databases which creates a lot of duplication. It also enables great security over who can see the data.

What needs improvement?

A platform to code in Python would be really helpful as Python is becoming very well integrated with other platforms.

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

Cost is very minimal for the license as compared to the value it generates for the organization.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Microsoft Access was used before jumping to Toad which created a lot of issues as there was no common database and everyone used their own local database.

What other advice do I have?

Managing such huge volumes of data has become very efficient.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the database architecture, the good functionality, and the user interface.

What needs improvement?

Many users don't know how to add licensing to Toad, or where it is shown, so they could make that easier.

What other advice do I have?

I don't work with Toad, I support Toad because I work in a distributor company. I deal mostly with the on-premises version of the solution. I would recommend Toad but I think it would be a better solution if it had one platform or if it was an all-in-one tool. I would rate this solution nine out of ten. I'd rate it higher, but right now, for example, if I want to work with the database I must load… more»
