Coming Out on Top - Toad and SharePlex Take DBTA Readers' Choice Awards


Thanks for making Toad and SharePlex #1 again! In the 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards sponsored by Database Trends and Applications Magazine, Toad Development Suite was named Best Database Development Solution, Toad DBA Suite was named Best Database Administration Solution and SharePlex was named Best Streaming Data Solution.

More than 30,000 data professionals read DBTA, and that distinguished following recognized Dell products as winners in three categories and finalists in nine more of the 29 total categories. Having real-world users award us winner or finalist in almost half of all categories is quite an honor, and we’re gratified that you think so highly of our work.

Organizations are becoming increasingly data-driven and look upon data as a competitive advantage. It’s no surprise that so many pros rely on Toad to help them meet their SLAs by being more productive, improving performance and ensuring high-quality applications can be delivered faster in their RDBMS and NoSQL environments.

SharePlex got the nod from DBTA for extending the value of existing systems by integrating with modern systems, making data available to users in real-time and enabling active reporting and fast decision making.
