ApexSQL Diff tools... time-saving, life-saving software.... I love it :)

Microsoft Great Plains is a database that has over 1,000 tables and 11,000 stored procedures and a large amount of other objects contained in SQL. I have looked at many different products to show the differences between the different versions of GP and ApexSQL, in my opinion was the fastest. Since their new changes to ApexSQL Diff they've even surpassed their own record in how long it takes to compare the databases. I validate this because I didn't do an accurate timing 2 years ago but I'm pretty sure the comparison has gone from 10-15 minutes down to less than a few minutes. It's amazing how fast it really works!

We are a startup HIS company that provides a hosted solution for hospital Clinical Diagnostic Information. The requirements are such that we needed a comprehensive Structure and Data Diff/Update tool for our sometimes complex updates. ApexSQL Diff and ApexSQL Data Diff have been nothing short of miraculous in performing diffs and providing upgrade scripts. Even a difficult update with table, column and key name changes showed a lot of intelligent programming went into these tools. Highly recommended

I have to say, the purchase of ApexSQL Diff and ApexSQL Data Diff has to be among the best (if not *the* absolute best) investments my company ever made for our database needs. Our flagship product runs on each client's site against a series of databases - 4 to be exact; so when we add new functionality to the product we invariably have a fair amount of updates to one or more of these databases. We generally deploy our updates in small batches as soon as new features get out of QA so we never really needed to come up with an elaborate deployment scheme. We would simply generate a few SQL scripts to create or alter SQL objects and populate data as needed. All that changed recently. A major new update to our product was completed, comprising nearly two years’ worth of effort. Extensive changes were made to each of the four databases, with one of them more than doubling in size (amount of SQL objects). The changes were, of course, varied: new tables, stored procedures, entity relationships, rules, etc... as well as scores of updates to existing objects. Included among the changes were pre-populated lookup tables containing thousands of rows of data. Now we were faced with the challenge of how to deploy this beast. Could we write deployment scripts to update our existing clients? Of course. But how long would that take? Hours? Days? Sure, Enterprise Manager could generate the DDL to create our new objects, but it doesn't take dependencies into account; the manual intervention required to ensure our deployment scripts would create SQL objects in the proper sequence would only add to the overall time required. We were under an extremely tight deadline to deploy our changes so I tried the combination of ApexSQL Diff and ApexSQL Data Diff to apply our changes. Using a test server first, I used ApexSQL Diff to sync against my development server and was amazed to find that within MINUTES I had a completely synced database. No searching for all of the objects I needed to synchronize, no update script to write, and no dependency order issues to worry about - ApexSQL Diff took care of everything for me! Best of all, it also provided me with an update script that I could save and archive in source control. Using ApexSQL Data Diff next, I was able to sync as much or as little of my data differences as I needed. I couldn't have asked for better results! Your tools literally paid for themselves the very first time I used them! I whole-heartedly recommend ApexSQL Diff and ApexSQL Data Diff to anyone with any serious SQL Server synchronization needs
Thank you for the fine product your company delivers (ApexSQL Diff). I have caused several companies to purchase this during my career as a DBA as I find it to be the best at reconciling database structure, hands down. I have successfully activated the software and as usual am extremely happy with the upgrade

Thank you for all the help! After working with ApexSQL Diff for so many years it is extremely encouraging to see your involvement in the direction of the products! I still remember when I first started using proc-blaster (many moons and employers ago)! The product line has come a long way since those days and I am encouraged by the direction the applications have gone. :) With each release you have made my life easier :)

I am with my third company using your ApexSQL tools.
Brian, over the years it I have always appreciated that you see and respond personally to the Email & Forum traffic
ApexSQL Diff still rocks and splitting out ApexSQL Data Diff was definitely a step in the right direction

Thanks! Great customer service! I really appreciate your help and quick response. I had never used ApexSQL Diff before and in 5 minutes I had my scripts ready to upgrade my other database with both new objects and data. ApexSQL Diff was very intuitive to use and worked like a charm. I can't believe how much time I wasted previously generating upgrade scripts by hand

I just wanted to thank you both for all of your help--- particularly with such short notice! I am looking forward to using your new products. The ApexSQL Edit/Diff are some of the best tools in my arsenal. I assure you that your hard work and sweat are much appreciated!
First I would like to thank you for creating the most comprehensive and fully featured SQL objects comparison tool I have ever used. I went through almost all its features. I like it SO MUCH because one of the benefits of using this tool is that it provides me not only high efficiency but also tremendous reliability to the large database migration processes. I believe that the HIGH level of quality and efficiency of doing database migrations with its help would NEVER be achieved by any other means we used to utilize

So far, ApexSQL Diff is the only SQL diff program that actually works with SQL2005 CTE's in stored procedure

ApexSQL Diff paid for itself in the first hour of using it. I synced 12 different databases to a common rev and man am I happy
ApexSQL Diff is a great product. Keep on the good work
I downloaded your excellent software to compare data bases and schemas and it worked great. The UI is very easy to use.
