    It is appropriate in all scenarios. It is perfect to connect with the database. Actually, nothing to dislike in functionality and performance. It is stand-alone and doesn't need any additional application to be installed.
    Abdul Wahab Khan | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft SQL Server

    Microsoft SQL Server is a great RDBMS and meets all of our requirements. If you need a stable DB platform to support your line of a business application you'll be well served. Licensing costs are far cheaper, more portable and a lot more user friendly than Oracle. Product support and security patches from Microsoft are strong.

    Pros

    • Strong Data Encryption algorithm for Data security and integrity.
    • Local data caching, connection pooling, query optimization for every operation leads to high performance in the system.
    • With our fully Unicode driver, you can retrieve and work with any data from multi-lingual SQLite databases correctly, and not depend on its charset
    Suhas Kashyap RR | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft SQL Server

    • Easy to configure and use with Visual Studio and Dot Net
    • Easy integration with MSBI to perform data analysis
    • Data Security
    • Easy to understand and use
    • Very easy to export database and tables in the form of SQL query or a script

    Cons

    Devart ODBC Driver

    • It would be good if the connection details are stored on the cloud based on the user login so that even if the software is corrupted, it can be pulled in automatically from the cloud upon reinstallation.
    • It would great if video demos were available for the key features of the tool. That would make it a lot simpler for the user when using it the first time.
    • User friendliness can be improved.
    Charanya Rajagopalan | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft SQL Server

    • The import/export process can be tricky to follow with lots of steps and could be better for importing flat files
    • Obtaining help from Microsoft is cumbersome and often other internet sources are better and quicker
    • The documentation is not great and again it's generally better to obtain help elsewhere if needed

    We understand that the Microsoft SQL Server will continue to advance, offering the same robust and reliable platform while adding new features that enable us, as a software center, to create a superior product. That provides excellent performance while reducing the hardware requirements and the total cost of ownership of our solution.

    SQL Server mostly 'just works' or generates error messages to help you sort out the trouble. You can usually count on the product to get the job done and keep an eye on your potential mistakes. Interaction with other Microsoft products makes operating as a Windows user pretty straight forward. Digging through the multitude of dialogs and wizards can be a pain, but the answer is usually there somewhere.

    We managed to handle most of our problems by looking into Microsoft's official documentation that has everything explained and almost every function has an example that illustrates in detail how a particular functionality works. Just like PowerShell has the ability to show you an example of how some cmdlet works, that is the case also here, and in my opinion, it is a very good practice and I like it.

    Other than SQL taking quite a bit of time to actually install there are no problems with installation. Even on hardware that has good performance SQL can still take close to an hour to install a typical server with management and reporting services.

    Microsoft SQL Server

    [Microsoft] SQL Server has a much better community and professional support and is overall just a more reliable system with Microsoft behind it. I've used MySQL in the past and SQL Server has just become more comfortable for me and is my go to RDBMS.

    Return on Investment

    Devart ODBC Driver

    • Using this high-performance driver with data encryption is achieved for bulk data which helps the business grow larger
    • Multiple or parallel data insertion and retrieval of bulk data is achieved with high performance which is very reliable for any customer.
    Suhas Kashyap RR | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft SQL Server

    • Increased accuracy - We went from multiple users having different versions of an Excel spreadsheet to a single source of truth for our reporting.
    • Increased Efficiency - We can now generate reports at any time from a single source rather than multiple users spending their time collating data and generating reports.
    • Improved Security - Enterprise level security on a dedicated server rather than financial files on multiple laptop hard drives.
