"Best database for the Mac."

May 25, 2011  |  By dfbishop

 |  Version: FileMaker Pro 11.0.3.312

Pros

Full featured, web integration, ease of programability, flexibility in layout and robust data protection.

Cons

Past updates have made some earlier versions incompatible or required much reprogramming. Hopefully, this will not be the case in the future.

Summary

Outstanding product

February 21, 2011  |  By clandise

 |  Version: FileMaker Pro 11.0.3.312

Pros

Many features

Cons

Be prepared to rewrite old scripts because they don't seamlessly update

Summary

For the small business user. Bento is too stripped down, Filemaker is too complicated

"Easy to use powerful database system"

February 11, 2011  |  By Martin Turner--2008

 |  Version: FileMaker Pro 11.0.3.312

Pros

Ridiculously easy to use and format, ideal for 'fast and dirty' database programming, and can also be scaled up for robust bigger systems, or issued as runtime through Filemaker advanced

Cons

Slow! On most databases on modern computers you won't notice this. However, the code is not compact or optimised for an enterprise level solution. Migration to MySQL etc is data-only.

Summary

Most databases these days are Excel spreadsheets -- a highly risky strategy for any data of more than passing importance. Filemaker is vastly more powerful and functional, and only marginally less 'obvious'. It has a very high degree of control over forms and relations, as well as strong calculations and a serviceable scripting system. Filemaker has worked hard to create enterprise versions of it, using Filemaker Server. Although this is a robust solution, the speed doesn't match high-end enterprise solutions, although the costs are a lot lower. Vastly preferable to Access for many applications, and makes construction of a database as part of a project solution a fairly easy step, which can itself save months of work and specification. However, you have to take your own steps to ensure data robustness, as the 'anything can relate to anything' ease of use can easily produce results which are unexpected (ie, illogical).
