SQLyog is a remarkable piece of software that provides MySQL users a simpler, less obtrusive way interact with the database engine. Administration of MySQL involves the use of configuration files and tools that are not objectively user-friendly. SQLyog solves this problem by providing users with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that even MySQL novices can easily grasp.

Editing, Administration, and Queries Made Easy

Management of your MySQL databases has never been easier. Utilization of SQLyog's simple to use interface allows for the completion of MySQL tasks more efficiently. Data manipulation queries, such as INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE functions can be performed from a spreadsheet-like interface. The software also allows for both raw data and results from a previously executed query to be manipulated.

SQLyog provides unattended backups along with compression and storage of data with an identifying time stamp. Simple operations are completed using many different tools and functions that automatically generate queries in the appropriate SQL syntax. Other features include a tool for the simple importing of data from ODBC databases, a visual query builder, a visual schema designer, and a query formatting tool.

Tapping Into the Massive Potential of MySQL

The MySQL database engine is a powerful and highly versatile tool, but the interface itself is considered to be unintuitive by both beginners and experts alike. The barrier of MySQL's intimidating interface is effectively removed and replaced with something far more user-friendly with the use of SQLyog. The one barrier to entry that should be considered; however, is that the software is sold based on an unnecessarily complicated price structure. The per-user licenses are sold based on differing functionality levels, which may be off-putting to some users.

Pros

  • User-friendly interface
  • Spreadsheet-like results for queries is exceedingly useful
  • Extensive range of features that make MySQL simpler than ever before

Cons

  • Pricing structure can be confusing and intimidating
