Relational databases continue to be the dominant database platform deployed by the majority of organizations using Aqua Data Studio, with 98% confirming they use databases such as Oracle, SQL Server and Sybase. In significantly smaller numbers, relational cloud-based platforms (23%), NoSQL/big data platforms (22%) and document databases (17%) round out the top four.

More than 50% of respondents cite the top challenges they looked to solve by adding AquaFold to their organization as collecting data from queries and putting it in useful formats for evaluation and analysis. Others included managing a complex database environment with multiple database platforms (52%); comparing and synchronizing data and schema objects between databases (39%); and simplifying and automating admin tasks to focus on other work (30%).

Since using Aqua Data Studio, 98% of respondents had visible improvements in creating, editing and executing queries, while 95% experienced improvements in analyzing data from query results.
