Adding third-party tools can be an effective method of enhancing software, since they may provide additional features lacking in the original software. MySQL is no exception to this general rule, as many applications work on this database platform. Many of the benefits involve the ability of a graphical user interface to handle schema and data synchronization tasks. That allows database administrators to apply schema changes when migrating them from a test to a production environment. Third-party software with backup capability can also help protect what your databases contain.
