Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft SQL Server

It is used as a data warehousing and business intelligence platform across the whole organization.
  • Troubleshooting is easy because of several forums available on the internet. We can Google error messages and find solutions easily.
  • It has a complete set of tools for data warehousing and business intelligence, so integration and automation are easy.
  • Easy access to training and skilled workforce availability.
  • There are some in-memory tools in the market that I have used to replace analysis services. Those in-memory tools have reduced the aggregation time to a few minutes as compared to a couple of hours on analysis services.
  • Mobile apps for SSMS and SQL agent would be a good addition to the toolbelt.
  • A built-in SQL source code control tool that can be used to track code changes and schema changes from SSMS would be very useful. It should easily show who made the changes, what changes were made and when, and provide an option to roll back to any of the previous versions if needed.
  • Has a very positive ROI and meets most business objectives.
  • Performance improvement in analysis services.
  • Built-in SQL code change tracking, formatting, search features will make it even more awesome.
SQL Server is much easier to use and troubleshoot than Oracle Database.
It is easy to get help via forums from Microsoft MVPs and the user community.
