Today Dell Software announced that it continues to focus on enabling customers to manage all types of data across all platforms with updates to its Toad family of database solutions. The new updates are aimed to allow users to automate agile development practices, improve data preparation for analytics and reporting, and gain flexibility in selecting database platforms.

The database market is growing increasing complex and IT resources need options to handle this new complexity. Not only is there more data than ever before, there are more data sources, forcing IT to take on more tasks and learn new technologies. Dell’s Toad family of database solutions is platform-agnostic working with both traditional and non-traditional data sources. Toad solutions are the market leader in independent database management solution with over 2 million users worldwide. Toad software is a critical component of Dell Software’s end-to-end information management offering.

Toad solutions take common administration, development and data preparation challenges and automate them which increases performance, availability and user productivity. The latest enhancements to the Toad family enable data professionals to better manage Oracle, SAP, IBM, and Hadoop databases, and prepare data from across these and dozens of other platforms for the purpose of analytics.

Toad for Oracle updates and enhancements include:

  • Helps development and DBA teams work more collaboratively through integration with Toad Intelligence Central, which allows users to more easily share Toad files and attributes such as scripts, connections, automation actions and code analysis rule sets.
  • Management teams now have access to new web-based reporting for code analysis, enabling them to view historical and readiness code reports without the need for an additional license.
  • A redesign of the main SQL development area, and a revamped Team Coding area to improve support and management with third-part version control systems

Toad Data Point updates and enhancements include:

  • Features an upgraded transformation and cleanse engine, which now includes data profiling capabilities, new transformation rules, and a more robust engine for processing larger data sets, allowing users to manipulate and change data more easily. The new release also enhances and simplifies the process of aggregating data, pivoting data, and visually understanding data joins.
  • In addition, Toad Intelligence Central is now also integrated with Dell Software’s Boomi integration and Statistica advanced analytics solutions, enabling users to seamlessly integrate, share, prepare and analyze multiple disparate data sets from sources both on- and off-premises. Toad Intelligence Central not only integrates with Dell’s other data management solutions, but with tools from third-party visualization vendors such as Qlik, Tableau, and Microsoft.

Toad is also expanding its platform support to include SAP HANA, as well as improved capabilities for IBM DB2 and Hadoop. This expanded platform support helps users when transitioning to new database management systems. Instead of learning new interfaces, users can stick with the familiar Toad interface and tool set.

Availability and pricing

The updated Toad software is available now and starts at $595 per user.
