I used SQLDoc3 before, but now I am using Dataedo, and it is a great tool for me. Most of the time, we design the database schema directly via database tool, and we needed a mature software to help us generate the database schema document for it as well. Dataedo is easy to understand, and we are using it on regular daily basis. We would for sure recommend this software.
Through Dataedo, we can define user relationships between tables in each module of our ERP. It helped us track the progress of documentation. The server repository feature can centrally share the data dictionary among the team in real time. It is definitely a user-friendly tool and easy to understand. We use Dataedo regularly every time there is a change in table structure or an introduction of new modules. We would recommend the tool to anyone with similar requirements.
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.
Dataedo has many features other tools are lacking - ability to document relations that are not set in the DB, rich text descriptions, tracking progress at a glance, grouping objects into topics and keeping track of decommissioned/renamed columns. I would definitely recommend Dataedo to others. It is a great tool and they are very responsive which counts for a lot.
