Database professionals must handle many different tasks during the work day, ranging from creating queries and scripts to comparing and editing dataset results, just to name a few. Whether you’re a DBA or a developer, you may have some frequently repeated responsibilities and goals, which means there is an opportunity to simplify and automate tasks to be more productive on a daily basis.

A good database tool can help you to do just that. Greg Robidoux’s whitepaper, Key Considerations for Selecting a Database Tool, discusses some of the tasks that database professionals deal with on a regular basis and suggests key capabilities you may want to consider when selecting a database tool. A consistent user interface is particularly important if you’re working with more than one database platforms, so that you don’t have to remember all the different implementations.

When evaluating and selecting a database tool, think about the features you are going to be using the most and whether they are available in the tool you are considering.
