In our organization, Microsoft SQL Server is being used as a relational database engine to store and manage data for multiple applications of CRM, ERP, and Automation. It is widely used by a large number of teams across different project functions which require a database management solution.

We use SQL server as a back-end for the vast majority of our software applications. This includes backends for web apps, data staging and SSIS/SSRS. As far as DB's go, SQL server is our first choice because it integrates easily with our Microsoft .net and .net core applications. Our SQL DB's are used across the entire organization.

We currently use Microsoft SQL Server as our database application for our applications. We are using the Microsoft SQL Server jobs, Analysis services, cubes, and many other features to help provide front end data solutions to our customers. Our instance of Microsoft SQL Server also allows for multi-database implementation with full backup capabilities. We also pair with the latest management studio to get the best UI experience.

Microsoft SQL Server is being used by my whole organization by analysts and database administrators to maintain banking data including documents, statements, check images location pointers etc. It is able to store large banking information and can be managed easily at one place. Besides our client banks data, our company internal applications database is also stored and managed in it.

We have been using SQL Server through AWS RDS and it is our main tool in terms of data. All collected data from our system goes directly to the SQL Server before going to RedShift. So, we call it internally our live data and it contains everything in real-time.

We use it as our central data warehouse across the entire organization for most of our data needs. We base our MicroStrategy Analytics software off of it, executive reporting off of it, and use it to house several years of transaction and inventory data. It serves as the central source of truth.

Over in IT we use [Microsoft] SQL Server as our primary RDBMS across the entire department. We have a handful of legacy oracle databases which are yet to be retired and are planned to switch over to [Microsoft] SQL Server. [Microsoft] SQL Server is the database behind all of our software application systems essentially and is how we maintain and store all of our application data.

We use MS SQL Server as our main database to store customer data. We have a monolith web application that is using a single MS SQL Server database. MS SQL is one of the best RDBMS in terms of speed and its really easy to use with a lot of pre-built functions that are really convenient for our application.

For the uninitiated it is first important to point out that many programs use a Database at the back-end and the end-user will be totally unaware of that fact. So Microsoft SQL Server is a Database software. You (or the program you use) can enter all the needed information and then retrieve it when needed.

We use Microsoft SQL Server to provide a platform for our field users to input data for multiple purposes. We store contract data, financial data, time entry data, customer survey data among other data. Microsoft SQL Server gives us a single source of truth for a lot of our reporting. This allows us to have confidence that we are recording and reporting out accurate data.

Microsoft SQL Server is our organization's main Database Management System and is the primary back-end server for most of our critical business applications. It's a general requirement that any new application we implement has to operate on SQL Server, if it requires a database back-end. We have a great dependency upon SQL Server and it has not disappointed us.

Microsoft SQL Server houses our databases for our CRM application. The CRM application is the core system that contains all of our company's information to function as a Distributor of safety products. The CRM application has many functions that would not perform properly without the use of the Microsoft SQL server.

This is the database engine we use for our own systems and for our clients. So we use it internaly and externaly, to store all the information we need to have control of.
Also this is the source for different process and reports, outside the database sich as Power BI.
It helps a lot with the database storing, since it is very easy to use and manage.

We use Microsoft SQL Server as the DB option for the commercial back-office modules of our MLFF (Multi-Lane - Free Flow) Tolling solution. All the commercial back-office (from Customer registration to involvement and payment handling) relies on Microsoft SQL Server databases. Other vital components of the entire solution, like Security and Vehicle Management, and the Reporting environment also utilize Microsoft SQL Server.

Our business's in house desktop and web applications run off a SQL Server database. We have used it (and abused it) for 12 or so years now. I don't personally have experience with other databases (a little MySQL) but so far I haven't come across a scenario where SQL Server has been lacking, and that is coming from someone who advocates putting the business logic in SP's (OK, let's not start down that path...).

We are using Microsoft SQL Server Express edition for teaching RDBMS to the students its really a nice tool to use. In personal I have also used the developer edition for application development. The best part of this software is it is robust. You can use it for both [...] website application[s] or [...] web application development. This database tool support[s] Microsoft visual studio so if you are using that IDE for development this is one of the most compatible and reliable [databases] software. Very efficiently handle the CRUD operations.

SQL Server is our only database engine. We use it for every main application and therefore across the entire organization. It solves the business problem of getting the right data to the right users quickly and efficiently.

We have a few [Microsoft SQL Server's] in our environment and they are used for SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, and many other database requirements that we have. Everyone indirectly uses it as it houses all our data which is accessed by some application frontends that our users work with. Being a Microsoft product it is very easy to manage and administer with in our Active Directory environment.

We utilize Microsoft SQL Server as the database for our Epicor Prophet 21 ERP system. It is used by all of our users to process the products that we sell, the potential customers for our Sales staff, and our purchasing department to order from suppliers. We also utilize SQL Reporting to create custom SQL reports for Management and end users. Microsoft SQL Server helps address the ability for management to easily query and access necessary business metrics. Customized SQL Server views and stored procedures are used to automate management tracking and customer contact. Since SQL Server is a widely-used database, numerous third-party tools that we use, like Pipedrive and Google BigQuery, easily interface with our data.

I have worked with Microsoft SQL Server on many projects. The most recent was as the backend of an ERP system. The nature of an ERP system involved the entire organization from the shop which would use it to get the BOM (Bill Of Material) to build the parts to QA to check the parts to Purchasing to buy the raw materials to Sales to sell the parts to Shipping to ship the parts and even HR.

Microsoft SQL Server is used in our organization to store data, run analyses, and produce reports using data from our web-based application. It is mostly being used in the data analytics department and it allows the team to work on projects together and integrate with other software used in the organization.
