This section will give you a brief overview of the features available in SQL Data Lens

SQL Data Lens works different databases but is specifically optimized for unique InterSystems Caché and IRIS features. It combines many tools with a smart sql editor to provide easy access to your databases.

SQL Data Lens is a development tool designed for InterSystems Caché and IRIS. SQL Data Lens is intended for software developers and analysts. The tool supports primarily the management of Caché and IRIS Server connections and the execution of SQL queries. The different connections can be organized in groups.

Software developers who are familiar with InterSystems technologies should easily find their way through the use of InterSystems specific terms. The interface concept is inspired by the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, so users with a Microsoft background should be also feel at home.

SQL Data Lens can also connect to databases like MS SQL Server, MS Access, CSV Files and much more to fit your needs in a heterogeneous database environment.

Organize your servers and connections

The Navigator is a tree structure to browse and manage database objects. You can easily organize and group your Intersystems IRIS and Caché Servers. But you can also integrate connections to other databases, e.g. MS SQL Server, SQLite, HSQLDB, MS Access.

From the Navigator you reach all database objects and structures such as tables, views, globals, classes, indexes, constraints, procedures, functions and many more.
