As data proliferates in modern organizations, and as more people work with data in their day-to-day operations, it has become crucial to facilitate access to data assets. SQL is the programming language used by the most popular database servers worldwide, and SQL editors are the interfaces that provide access to the data. Thus, democratizing access to data is synonym with making SQL accessible to a wide range of people.
This explains the recent explosion in the past few years of SQL editors. This new trend is not going to stop, and we'd rather bring visibility and structure soon.
At CastorDoc, we believe the first step to structure the SQL editors tools market, is more transparency. For that reason, we put up a list of all the SQL IDEs we heard of. More context on this analysis and the state of the SQL clients ecosystem here.
