More Features, More Productive Developers with dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle
June 02, 2011
Devart Team is proud to announce the release of
dbForge Schema Compare for Oracle 2.0.
While the first version of the product was being launched, we were already working
on its next release, because it was quite clear that dbForge Schema Compare 1.0
is just a good starting point. We did not even manage to implement all the functionality
that was on our roadmap, to say nothing of our users' suggestions and wishes.
Our main purpose was and still is to give Oracle developers and DBAs a tool that
would maximize their productivity, reduce application lifecycle costs, and decrease
application downtime caused by upgrades.
So, the version 2.0 is out now, and all its capabilities combined with your potential
will make you an honourable Oracle specialist!
