We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is easy to track the reports, this is what is most valuable for me.""The most valuable feature is SQL Search."

More Redgate SQL Toolbelt Pros →

"I find Toad easy to use and I love the Workspace feature, which allows me to set up projects so that I can open SQL files applicable to what I am working on at any particular time.""A quite simple feature that I have not encountered elsewhere is the "Make Code" feature. I can easily export a complex SQL statement to a programming language. This is a great timesaver as I do not have to type in all of the escape/concatenation characters just to create a SQL statement in C# or C++.""Toad has a lot of features that are very useful, fast, and well developed."

Cons
"The biggest problem with the Redgate SQL Toolbelt is just how heavy it is; it seems to take a lot of resources.""I would like to see the bandwidth increase allowing me to easily analyze more data."

More Redgate SQL Toolbelt Cons →

"Once in a while, I may encounter a memory exception and have to abort the application. On a few occasions, the file that stores the saved connections for the New Connection window will become corrupt and I will lose all of my saved connections. I am not sure if that is a Windows or TOAD issue, but it has happened to all of my developers at some point or another.""There should also be a better "cancel query" option as sometimes one cancels a query, but then it still might run for a long time, and then one has to crash Toad in order to cancel the query.""I would like to see an improvement in the performance because opening the browser and the editor should be faster."
