I used Dataedo to document a project in which we had used some over-seas development. Not only it was helpful in creating documentation, but it proved essential when it came time to bug fix and troubleshoot. The fact it enabled us to update and provide consistent documentation paid for itself. Thanks to Dataedo I spent more time figuring out the connection string to the instance than I did running the report. It was a great experience. I'm continuing to use it with no expectation of stopping anytime soon.
Dataedo helped us document a third-party database that did not follow DB best practices. It didn't have any foreign keys, and Dataedo helped us track relationships and made data easier to find. The tool is helping us be more consistent with our integration, and it's helping developers with less experience find the data that they are looking for. It is regularly used by all our developers for all our own and third-party databases. I would recommend the tool to anyone with a similar issue to solve.
We use Dataedo to describe database objects, share documentation and track database modifications. We had no problems with using the tool. It is easy to use. We use the tool regularly and would recommend it to others. We will continue to work with Dataedo in all our future projects.
I am finding Dataedo to be a great product! Having used many database documentation tools over the years, I am glad to have found a product that is so powerful and easy to use. The ability to customize documentation according to individual requirements, while highlighting areas for improvement, helps to deliver true customer value. I believe that this tool could help many companies solve their database documentation problems.
