Having a strong background on Oracle Databases, Microsoft SQL Server is pretty simple to use. There are fewer options and some behaviour (like writers blocking readers) require an adaptation, but overall Microsoft SQL Server is an excellent product that has been adding features in the last 15 years, making it a database engine easy to use but powerful at the same time.

SQL Server is very user-friendly and easy to use. The wizard and setup are straight forward. Development codes are free and can be outsourced. The IT community are very helpful when it comes with codes. In this SQL server stands out because a lot of people and company are using it.

Because MS SQL Server is easy RDMS and secures at the same time. Also, MS SQL Server is a Distributed Transactional Tool. The Support is always On, Documentation and Learning are always active. Around the world, Microsoft has a lot of partnerships that can help if it is necessary to have an expert. Microsoft always has upgrades.

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.

Once you have gained adequate experience to manage autonomously SQL Server sql server usability it is excellent, the fact remains that the SQL Server platform has a variety of very wide use, are so many variables to consider in a sql oriented system. Usability (mean maintainability) becomes more complicated if it is larger the amount of data to manage (with large I mean some TBs for each databases)

I give it an 8 because it can be hard to start using without knowing some sort of SQL already. Having an understanding of relational databases and SQL queries would be a huge bonus for someone just starting out. But other than that it is great and there are always multiple methods to get to a result. Some people use a GUI and some just write SQL code to accomplish the same feat.

Microsoft SQL Server is a sold and robust platform. We find it easy to administer, develop, deploy, and manage solutions on this platform. We have used this technology for over 20 years and have entrusted our organization to run on this platform on a worldwide scale. It has been one of the best business decisions we've made.
