I-love-Toad-sm.png-550x0

  • Attempting to manage dozens, even hundreds, of Oracle databases can be very overwhelming at times. The TOAD gui gives me instant, organized feedback on all of my databases and allows me to customize what I want to see and how I want to see it. Navigation is quick and it is fairly easy to find the options I need when I need them. I would have to use one telnet window for each database I wish to have at my fingertips and that is a cumbersome way to do business and leads to confusion and potential mistakes.
  • Toad allows greater flexibility in searching for tables, views and code. It also allows for greater flexibility in viewing the database schema as well as making updates.
  • It makes writing queries and troubleshooting code so much easier!
  • Ease of use. The interface is AWESOME!!!!
  • Everything I do, from administration of users and processes, to developing scripts and reports, is easier and faster with the support of TOAD.
  • It gives me all this functionality in one tool.
  • I regularly use autoreplace – sfr=select * fromI use Ctrl Enter to run a sql
  • Best tool to manage Oracle database.I feel sorry for my previous co-worker who had to use sql until I introduced Toad into the company.
  • It has an awesome amount of tools that can do pretty much anything that is needed.
  • It lets me focus on all my databases in one place so I have less distraction. Comparisons between databases are a snap. Generating scripts from objects in dev database so they can be added to test database is a joy. Scooping out code in functions and packages to give to developers doesn't get any easier.
  • It saves me a lot of time doing stuff manually, although this has also some disadvantages, like now knowing how to do things manually without Toad anymore. 😉
  • It is an invaluable tool for development.
  • It makes development easier. I can't remember anything so having the CTRL-SPACEBAR (code snippets) and the Knowledge Xpert makes coding very easy. The Schema browser with all the different features is great also.
  • I would go crazy trying to get by on a unix vi" editor and sql*plus"
  • Toad is great! Great because it is the complete tool for accessing and managing oracle instances. The perfect fit of a tool for a DBMS.
  • I use the tool about 80% of my working day!
  • I'm in there about 90% of the day. If I didn't have Toad I'd be in that free Oracle provided utility which I really did try (to save money) but it was not good. Originally I needed Toad for the debugging support but of course now I use Quest Code Tester so I don't debug…right?
  • It helps me do my job faster and easier. The tools I need are all in one place and quickly accessible.
  • It allows me access to everything I need to see / do with one click including DBA tasks. Very user friendly and supports complicated development tasks.
  • Toad makes me so much more productive…and it makes me look really smart 😉
  • Toad can work like a cowboy, very flexible tools that I ever found in any other database developer tools…… Hurray
  • It saves both time and my manicure! When I came into this position, I was given a copy of Toad and and an instruction sheet for running 88 scripts every month and then manually putting the results into a set of 8 Excel workbooks for distribution. I immediately went to work to further automate the monthly process and found TDA to be precisely what I needed.I set up the automation scripts and now all I do is hit one single button and my nails look great! Thanks, TOAD!
  • No other tool lets me work at the level of my thought-process rather than at the level of SQL, PL/SQL
  • It's the only tool we used for development, research, performance tuning in our organization
  • How would I ever do my job! I spend probably 5 hours/day average working in Toad. My job has never been so easy. I still find new and helpful features to do my job better.
  • Toad is an amazing application. I cannot live without Toad. World without Toad is could be a world in Hell. Would take hours to complete what toad can do in a minute.
  • Toad is my tool to maintain tablespaces, maintain the db objects including links, verify dbhelath check, search db objects, compile db objects, compare schemas, retrieve the scripts for different schemas, run the sql scripts etc. It is my daily job to maintain oracle databases and uses Toad as my tool.
  • There are tools that Toad provides that are either not available elsewhere or aren't done as well.
  • My job is so much easier with it. Yes I could use vi, yes I could use sqlplus but why? Windows 3.1 might still boot up on a pc but does that mean it's a worthwhile technology?
  • I've lost the ability to use native sql sessions. I've become a lazy, shiftless contest entering nerd. Toad is the heroin of Oracle development.
  • Toad es el mejor amigo del desarrollador
  • Is the best way to administrate a Oracle Database, it simplify every daily task from DBA. Thanks for inventing the TOAD.
  • Every other PL/SQL IDE is terrible
  • No other SQL tool comes close to the power and ease of use that TOAD offers.
  • It makes my job so much easier. I can get my work done so much faster than others that don't utilize TOAD.
  • it gives me one central monitor for my databases, responds to user query requests, test code snippets, manage data, export, import… need I go on? It's my database Swiss Army knife
  • Its best tool to access Oracle , Oracle has no front end tool to manage Database , its TOAD which is the life saver always
  • Makes my job much easier and save me a WHOLE LOT of typing!
  • It is so helpful in my daily working and data base administration
  • Every day is easier with TOAD
  • Having to memorize all the SQL needed on a daily basis would turn my brain into mush
  • Toad is inspiring me to use Oracle and deal with the data and do everything quickly
  • Makes tuning WONDERFUL under pressure
  • It simplifies my life by making things visual and easier to understand. Nothing like having a query area that sticks around, is savable, allows for table views and table triggers to be viewed all at once.
  • It's one of the first tools I open during the day and the last thing I close before leaving for the night.
  • I switch between different db schemas while editing sql to use in php while (sometimes) taking customer phone calls; I can query a table, upload data, save queries for use in the PHP later, create a table, save a table script for to recreate it in Production….LIFE SAVER for me
  • I started learning oracle by using Toad. Toad thought me lots of tricks.
  • It's the most awesome tool to query a database!
  • Toad is the only SQL development utility that has consistently surprised me with its performance, reliability, and overall quality.
  • It helps me get my work done faster.
  • It gets me through my day.
  • It has simplified writing PL/SQL code so simple. That is beyond compare. I just cannot think of writing, executing doing development work without TOAD.
  • It makes MySQL a breeze to edit and monitor.
  • I love the customizable screens – the flexibility is awsome.
  • It helps me troubleshoot with its error messages describing type of error and generally which line it pertains to.
  • it allows me to check data easy and not to spent hours finding a misterius record and get sleep in searching….
  • it's very helpfully, easy useable tool for database administration and development
  • It allows me to view and manipulate my data in many formats and automate processes I couldn't before.
  • It lets me do what I need to do without having to worry so much about syntax or writing the correct query.
  • It does everything for me.   If I forget the syntax of a specific statement, I just make Toad do it and look at the script. It keeps everything organized
  • I was recently given the task of removing all system-named constraints in a 1000 table database, and replacing them with meaningfully named constraints. The recent addition to Toad of suggested names for constraints, together with remembered user-defined filters, has cut down a task that was probably going to be 3 months work, down to a few days. Worth the cost of the software on its own.
  • Probably the most brilliant tool I have ever used for Oracle development.
  • Problem: An obscure error with a stored procedure that I had spent 8 hours trying to find. After installing the debugger into Toad I single stepped through each line of code and found the problem in less than1 minute! SQL Modeler makes it too easy. How can I continue to charge as much as I do as a contractor now that anyone can do it!!!!
  • Let me express my profound gratitude at your work. This product is why I changed my perception of Oracle development. I was presented with the great Notepad and SQL Plus combo and asked to come up with application. I have used Toad only for a day and half, I can hardly believe the quantum leap in my productivity it has provided. I can not thank you enough! Keep up the great work!
  • The functionality, efficiency, flexibility, slick design and overall quality of Toad make it the product I use the most every day…The cost justification memo you send to your manager to purchase Toad will be the easiest one you ever write.
  • I'm onsite with a different client every other week or so. I take every opportunity to preach about Toad and to make sure the client has it installed before I leave.
  • I've used every tool on the market and nothing beats Toad. This is an indispensable tool; any developer will love it.
  • The ability to multiplex many user's requests for enhancements, fixes etc; and then responding OVERNIGHT by both email AND product revision is unprecedented! Something has to be said for the small enterprise and its ability to eliminate layers of communication between the customer and the solutions provider. Keep up the good work!
  • I am getting sort of addicted to Toad. Let’s see what management can do about my addiction.
