Admin tool: Toad for Oracle
Nominated by: Debbie Spencer

As a relatively new DBA, I use Toad for Oracle for a host of admin tasks. Toad lets me build/execute/debug SQL and PL/SQL queries, open multiple databases/schemas, compare schemas, FTP and create/modify database objects. As a newbie, it has simplified importing and exporting data and updating statistics. It also offers integration with Knowledge Xpert for built-in Oracle database expertise from recognized database experts. I recommend it to anyone looking to simplify their day-to-day Oracle administrative DBA task.
