The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

Microsoft SQL Server

With Microsoft SQL Server I can quickly develop a data storage solution for a .NET web application. The built in Visual Studio tool makes choosing Microsoft SQL Server an easy choice for getting up and running quickly. However it does require a large footprint, and would not be well suited for small applications where a NOSQL or static database solution would be more efficient.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation

  • In terms of resource utilization, there is room for improvement for SQL Server, so that it can cost less CPU usage.
  • There are lot of third party services like SQL Search and SQL Code Guard. Why is there a need for these if SQL itself can implement these necessary functionalities inbuilt?

We have entrusted our organization on the Microsoft SQL Server platform due to its robustness and solid architecture. We have had very little downtime throughout the years and have found the platform to improve greatly with each new version. It's tight integration with the Visual Studio environment makes development much easier. Administration and maintenance is easy as well, utilizing its out-of-the-box toolset for ensuring that the database platform is running smooth and performing well.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.

SQL Server is a better choice for quick time to market solutions and for easier maintenance. Oracle Database setup and programming to support solutions has a harder learning curve and it requires more time and effort to hit the ground running.An organization having invested heavily in the Microsoft Business Intelligence tool tends to prefer SQL Server for quick win solutions. Go with SQL Server for quick and easy wins. But do proper due diligence for enterprise solutions.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • Microsoft SQL server is priced less as compared to other enterprise database choices. This makes the initial investment more cost effective and in turn reflects better ROI.
  • Microsoft is easy to use and administer. Resources are readily available to support SQL Server. Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio makes life simpler when it comes to basic database administration tasks. As resource cost to maintain SQL Server is much less, it helps in gaining more positive ROI.
  • ROI can easily turn into negative side if solution evolves into a complex enterprise one, requiring better performance and bigger size of data. SQL Server cannot handle enterprise data as well as Oracle. Detailed architectural planning is needed before choosing SQL Server for an enterprise solution as the cost to move from SQL later could be more.
