About Red Gate Software
Red Gate sets the standard for total ease of use with its upgraded SQL Bundle
New User Interfaces make it even easier to compare and synchronize databases
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., April 11, 2006 – Red Gate Software, maker of ingeniously simple database tools, announced today that it has upgraded its complete set of database comparison and packaging tools to make them even easier to use. The improved products in SQL Bundle version 5 include enhancements to both user interfaces and underlying engines, further delivering on Red Gate's promise to provide simple, reliable tools that help developers and database administrators (DBAs) carry out their everyday tasks.
Red Gate's SQL bundle, which includes SQL Compare®, SQL Data Compare™ and DTS Package Compare™, is already known as the most reliable and comprehensive set of tools on the market, and the industry's only offering with full support for SQL Server 2005. In preparation for version 5, Red Gate rigorously studied how hundreds of users interact with the tools to speed their work and reduce errors. The result is the fully redesigned SQL bundle that includes enhancements to user interfaces, project management capabilities, data views and automation features allowing users to work with SQL 2005 even more quickly and with fewer errors than before.
"We continue to make the best SQL 2005 tools even better," said Simon Galbraith, Marketing Director at Red Gate. "While others are still struggling to provide 100 percent support for SQL Server 2005, we have changed the game with a whole new GUI based on how people actually work for extremely simple comparison and synchronization of even very complex databases."
Of particular note in the Red Gate bundle are enhancements made to SQL Compare, the industry-standard tool for comparing and synchronizing SQL Server database schemas. It's used by over 150,000 DBAs, developers and testers worldwide. New features in SQL Bundle version 5 include enhanced management of projects, an interactive help bar, improved side-by-side comparison of creation SQL, the ability to see object dependencies and the ability to remap database users and owners. All of this makes it easier for users to automate database comparisons, synchronize databases and eliminate manual scripting errors, saving countless hours of tedious work. With SQL Compare version 5, users can now:
- Push changes from development to staging, test and live environments
- Ensure version control for databases
- Simplify the database development processes
- Create a single script for migrating database changes and keep an audit trail of changes
- Save the scripts generated by SQL Compare to keep a record of all changes made to a database
"Red Gate has become a staple in helping me reduce my workload its SQL tools have always been reliable, feature rich and easy to use," said Radovan Dobric, Director, Aktiva-Info d.o.o. "I didn't think Red Gate could improve on SQL Bundle version 4's ease of use and navigability, but it did with version 5. I simply can't imagine using anything else."
