Efficient and reliable tool for data management

Overall, our experience with dbForge Studio for MySQL has been exceptional. It has not only allowed us to work seamlessly but also driven our daily operations without any hitches. Specifically, the full-featured and high performance of the software has enabled us to work consistently, allowing us to make high-quality contributions to our workflow.

PROS

On the whole, dbForge Studio for MySQL is a full-featured database management tool that provides everything we need to efficiently manage our data and the entire database. Its user-friendly interface and intuitive design facilitate efficient database management, streamlined data analysis, and reporting. The option to generate queries visually and automate repetitive tasks has had a positive impact on our workflow and increased efficiency. Additionally, the application seamlessly handles backup, restoration, and data import-export tasks, which are indispensable for us.

CONS

While dbForge Studio for MySQL provides extensive functionality, the tool doesn't have native support for macOS.

Reasons for switching to dbForge Studio for MySQL

Although Navicat (for MySQL) served us well for some time, we found that dbForge Studio for MySQL offered a more comprehensive set of features. The seamless integration with other Devart products and the responsive customer support were also decisive factors in our decision to make the switch.

Excellent Product

We are currently managing databases for engineering the hardware that we sell as a company. This is a mission critical app responsible for significant revenue. Our overall experience with dbForge Studio for MySQL has been excellent! We are very pleased with it and plan to continue using it. The support for MySQL 8.0 was an important feature missing from our previous tool as it was no longer being updated when 8.0 was released.

PROS

We had been using Toad for MySQL for several years. However, it was discontinued and replaced by Toad Edge, which lacked many of the features of Toad for MySQL and became a paid tool instead of freeware. Upon discovering dbForge Studio for MySQL, we found it had all the capabilities we were looking for and closely matched Toad for MySQL in features. We found it very easy to make the switch between the tools and have no regrets with our decision to purchase dbForge Studio for MySQL.

CONS

I have no major issues with this software. It works as designed for me and is very stable. There were 2 features in Toad for MySQL I do miss:1) The background color of edit sessions could be set to match the color of the icon used only it was a lighter pastel. Thus, light red for production, light yellow/orange for staging, light green for development and light blue for sandbox. This made it so you always knew which environment your were working in without having to look up to check it. Several times I have executed queries in production when I thought I was in development. Fortunately, no serious issues. 2) Vertical tabs - I work on a lot of queries at one time and can have 20 or more tabs open at one time. Scrolling across the top, or using the dropdown is cumbersome. Locating the tabs to the left (or right) of the edit window allows for scrolling the tabs with the mouse wheel.

Reason for choosing dbForge Studio for MySQL

This was the only tool that met the requirements and feature sets we were looking for.

Reasons for switching to dbForge Studio for MySQL

Toad for MySQL did not support MySQL 8.0. The replacement for it was Toad Edge, and it was deemed lacking in comparison to dbForge Studio for MySQL. Our testing and review of several other tools proved that dbForge Studio for MySQL was the most capable tool of all we tested.

Good Product that gets the job done

This product is great, it's not as intuitive as the old MySQL GUI from years past, but it works and accomplishes everything I need.

PROS

Does everything I need for a gui interface to MariaDB.

CONS

Sometimes I have to relearn how to run queries, get the results, check errors etc.

Reasons for switching to dbForge Studio for MySQL

It was free but no longer supported the new MariaDB.

All communication problems finally solved

Our Company is making color masterbatches for the Synthetic Fibres Industry. We cannot operate with the standard BoM system because we have several recipes for the same color.We have a complex system using an official financial ERP software, Excel for recipe's calculation and pricing and a PHP front-end based on a MySQL database. We needed to get automatic and error-free communication among these systems. Add to this that we are based in Italy, and the localisation makes the usage of. csv files a nightmare.After trying unsuccessfully other software, finally DbForge for MySQL brilliantly resolved all our problems. After months of research and testing we can confidently attest that none of the competitors offers the same capabilities and tools at a similar convenient price.Lastly, communication with Devart people is easy and fast: they are very collaborative and helpful.

PROS

-The straightforward and flawless two ways communication with Excel: we can finally stop worrying about decimal separators and misrepresentation of zero and blank cells,-The quick and easy way to automate via command line the export/import from one database to another,-The ability to handle huge files providing very useful tools (SQL Editor, Quey Builder, Script, Pivot)

CONS

The online help could be improved showing more practical examples.
