Essential for my iOS/Mac development workflow

What do you like best?

Offers a nice and tight native feeling user interface. Most tasks can be accomplished in a straightforward manner, quickly and efficiently. Great integration of copy and paste for quickly moving data to other apps, e.g. Excel or Sublime Text. I really like the editing and filtering options in the grid view, they are really powerful in comparison to most GUI clients.

What do you dislike?

Upgrade pricing is too high. There are way too many different flavours and confusing purchasing options. There is gap between appstore and webstore, with disadvantages for the appstore user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A really good option on the Mac for working with Core Data databases (SQLite) and line of business databases (e.g. Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL). Think what options and databases you really work with an get the edition that matches your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Opens, manages and edits all types of databases (SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL) on my Mac in a common UI. This speeds up development and makes cross-database tasks a breeze.

Interface for Rocket Engineering

What do you like best?

Yes it is, maintaining databases using CLI is pretty much like some rocket engineering. On our small business having someone else for database administration adds up more expenses. While all of our programmers can manage database using GUI.

Navicat helped our small business a lot. Navicat supports all databases we use with our web and cellphone apps. Not only it has GUI but also gives us accessibility to generate beautiful SQL quires.

What do you dislike?

It's an amazing software, wish the price was little low.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You get what you pay for, this software maybe a bit expensive but it worth the price as GUI database management.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Navicat for database management. Their wonderful product boosted our development.

What Non-Native Database Management Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Navicat: I'd Be Lost Without It

What do you like best?

Having multiple connections opened at once and being able to work in each of those easily. The server monitor is amazing if you use replication. But the best part of navicat is being able to clone a whole database, part of a database or just individual rows by dragging and dropping.

What do you dislike?

The query log could be more user friendly instead of using the operating systems default log application. It would also be nice to have the ability to manager master/slave databases right within Navicat. I will hopefully one day not have to use phpmyadmin anymore and will just be able to do everything that I need to do using Navicat.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you work with massive databases and/or multiple databases you need to get this

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can clone entire databases very quickly and easily. It will also let me search every field in every table. Debugging any database server problems, like locked queries, are very handy especially when you can see every server's process that you have set up. With phpmyadmin you will have to go to every individual server to view this.

A good product but not great

What do you like best?

Navicat has a lot of great features -- I like its ease of setup when connecting to multiple DBs, the ability to use query-builder when you want to visually build queries, and the ease of "beautification" of ugly SQL.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a bit clunky -- to query you need to be in a DB and then hit "new". Viewing table data also requires a new window which is cumbersome if you want to flip between table views. I prefer a simpler reload in same pane, much like you get with Sequel Pro (which I should note is only available on a mac).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I am working on data problems I tend to go to Navicat if I want to put tables together in query builder or clean up some machine SQL I am debugging. I like it for ease of table info viewing and creating foreign keys. For most other things I prefer other SQL tools.

Versátil, elegante e funcional

What do you like best?

Poder utilizar o mesmo software para gerenciar diferentes SGBDs. Além da elegância do software dou muito valor a sua parte funcional e performance, nestes pontos o Navicat em geral é muito positivo! Adoro o software.

What do you dislike?

Essa é uma pergunta difícil, não vejo nenhum ponto negativo no software, talvez minha única observação seja em relação ao preço, que no Brasil acaba sendo muito caro por conta do dólar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pode adquirir o Navicat Premium sem medo algum, o software é ótimo, está evoluindo a cada dia. Recomendo fortemente este produto baseado na minha própria experiência de uso.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gerenciamento de múltiplos SGBDs simultaneamente. O maior benefício foi a agilidade que ganhei ao trabalhar com este software.

A great tool for people needing a way to automatically sync databases.

What do you like best?

Being able to automatically update a SQL database on a regular schedule. It has to ability to e-mail you results to confirm that the update of a database was successful. It also make editing a SQL database very easy. Set up was pretty painless.

What do you dislike?

The method to set up automatic updating and e-mailing of results could be a little more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would definitely recommend this for easy SQL database editing or syncing between databases. It was a lifesaver for syncing a Pervasive database with an e-commerce SQL database.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to use Navicat to link an old out of date database with an online SQL database. The purpose was to link an inventory system with an ecommerce store. Without the automation abilities of Navicat, this wouldn't have been possible.
