Advanced Query Tool one tool . many databases . high power . low price

AQT provides a simple and easy-to-use interface to your many different databases.

With a feature-rich query environment and a wide range of DBA and developer tools, it is the ideal database product irrespective of whether you are a data analyst, DBA or developer.

AQT is FAST. It uses a low-level ODBC interface which runs reliably against the smallest database to the largest enterprise system.

Why choose AQT?

Works with ALL your databases

No other product has AQT's degree of multi-database support. Configured individually for over 20 different database types, AQT is a specialized product for every database. One tool, one price, for all your databases. In addition, AQT has excellent cross-database features. Load data from Oracle into DB2 z/OS! Compare tables between Sybase and MySQL!

"Pulls from ANY database, incredible product! I run SQL against AS400/DB2, proprietary PI OsiSoft, MS SQL Server, and Sybase. A lifesaver on my data warehousing projects."

Get your work done faster

AQT provides a simple, clean and easy-to-use interface. It is fast and responsive. Its wide range of features helps you get your job done quickly and efficiently.

"First of all, congratulations on building a most excellent tool. As an advanced business analyst user, I do not have access to nor have a need for the various expensive DBA tools that are widely used today. This tool is extremely sophisticated, flexible, and intuitive to use, making for a minimal learning curve."

Large Range of Tools

AQT is packed full of features. AQT will make your life easier no matter whether you are developing reports, managing your database farm, writing stored procedures, loading test data or migrating data between systems. Why have multiple tools, when one can do it all?

"Let me say that I've been in database administration for over 20 years and AQT is by far the best bang for the buck database administration tool I've ever come across, by a wide margin. My colleagues and I bang away at ours 40+ hours a week. It's a must have, and a pleasure to use, which is a rare combination."

A proven and stable product

In use since 1999 and with tens of thousands of licenses sold in over 70 countries, AQT is a solidly proven product. Our customers vary from individuals with a handful of tables to large enterprises with hundreds of thousands of tables. AQT works.

"I also want to tell you what an excellent tool AQT is, and how it simplifies my life (and work) and my colleague's lives too. Also, a word about the level of commitment you have put toward listening to the needs of the users about new features and bugs. I have rarely seen this with other BIG software I use.... For what it's worth, and what I know, other similar software don't even come close to AQT's stability, performance and features."

Low price

Costing $180 for the Standard Edition and $360 for the Extended Edition, AQT is a fraction of the price of other products with similar features. One price covers all databases. With free email support and low-cost version upgrades, your financial controller will love AQT as much as you do!

"By the way, I just want to say that AQT is the best tool of it's kind I've ever used. We had a salesman here the other day touting the "new" Toad for DB2 z/OS, at TEN TIMES the price of AQT - and AQT had it beat it in almost every way possible. And that doesn't even take into consideration your response to issues that would take months to get addressed through your typical large software company. THANK YOU!"
