Challenges faced

The products developed by Retail Acuity demand excellent work of all databases. The most tedious task was comparing the database data and schema. The company tried some other products, but none could resolve the problem. The developers still had to do a lot of manual work, and SQL development took too much time and effort.

After trying several tools, the developers turned to dbForge Studio for SQL Server. Its integral approach with all meaningful features in one solution and overall productivity suited excellently the company’s needs.

It analyzes and reports discrepancies and synchronizes the data between servers, even if the databases have different structures. The possibility to automate syncing tasks speeds up the routines impressively.

Schema Comparison

The feature compares, detects differences, and synchronizes database schemas of any complexity. It allows the developers to detect any errors at an early stage and track and identify any issues on production databases. The tool also produces deployment scripts for various SQL Server editions.
