Curious if anyone knows if there is a product out there that helps business folks manage values in a database without needing any coding knowledge.

I am building an app that will serve as the main client interface. I want business folks to be able to update the database so that the app has up to date info.

Parse's data browser let's you add/update/search/filter your data and it's basically the same complexity as a spreadsheet.

  1. You can add a new row
  2. Update different values to the row. It helps you structure your input. Eg dates have a calendar picker.
  3. Search for a certain phrase across all columns.
  4. Filter a column/ search on one column.
  5. On search results, you can update the values.
  6. You can't push some buttons to destroy the database/ needs to be business focused not programmer focused. Simple/clean UI is a must.

Is there any other products out there that is like that? Just curious to know beyond Parse if there is additional options.

  • For which OS? Is there a price limit? Specific features wanted? – Izzy Jul 5 '16 at 5:52
  • Doesn't really matter. Just be reasonable- no windows 3.1 – Quincy Jul 5 '16 at 12:40
  • For those who don't know what Parse is, could you post a URL? Which programming lannguage are you using? Is this Windows only (or cross platform, or browser-based)? – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jul 6 '16 at 12:19
  • Its just parse.com I'm open to many programming languages, and platforms. Doesn't matter to me if i tell someone to install something or go to a website. – Quincy Jul 6 '16 at 15:48

It mainly depends on your DB's type.

For MySQL, there are a couple of options like MySQL Workbench or Sequel Pro:


For MongoDB, two good options are MongoVUE and RoboMongo (which is fairly new).

And for SQL Server, check out this question.

  • Thanks but updated my question with more specifics – Quincy Jul 5 '16 at 12:38
