You can compare data between BigQuery and any other database platform supported by Database Compare Suite.

Introducing the updated user guide
We are happy to announce the launch of the totally re-imagined user guide for Database Compare Suite. You are welcome to enjoy a well-crafted interface, an improved user experience, and a convenient search function. This means that now you can find the required information in search results rather than navigating through endless menu pages.
Additionally, we have updated all pages covering database connection specifics with examples of connection strings. You can easily craft the connection string for your database using these templates.
Command-line interface improvements
Many customers use the command-line interface of Database Compare Suite to integrate various data operations into DevOps pipelines. As we are constantly improving the quality of our product, we have enhanced the command-line interface options in the latest release.
Particularly, we added the support of SSL connections in CLI. We also added the support of SQL Server Always Encrypted columns. Finally, you may specify that the driver can trust the server certificate when establishing a secure database connection.
User interface improvements
Based on recent customer feedback, we have made a couple of improvements to our user interface.
We simplified the sorting key selection operation by adding a button that allows for adding all available column pairs into the list of sorting columns.
Also, we updated the matching operation with the ability to review the loader log.
