Who should use DBMan?

Here is a straitforward test to see if DBMan is right for you.

  • If you are a data analyst, DBMan is right for you.
  • If you are a business analyst, DBMan is right for you.
  • If you are a system tester, DBMan is right for you.
  • If you are a database developer, DBMan is right for you.
  • If you need to do simple DBA tasks, DBMan is right for you.
  • If you work with multiple database vendor types, DBMan is right for you.

Here are the cases where DBMan is NOT right for you:

  •  If you are a DBA and need a tool to administer or monitor database activity, DBMan is not right for you.
  • If you are a developer and need to do advanced coding or use debugging features using proprietary languages like Transact SQL and PL/SQL, DBMan is not right for you.

In sum, DBMan is not a DBA all in all tool and neither is it the best developer tool.  Go pay the big bucks and get a tool to do that for ya.  But if you just need to do basic database stuff, then DBMan is the best bang for the buck!
