Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft SQL Server

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.

Since [Microsoft] SQL Server is a widely-accepted and popular database format, it is well-suited for smaller and larger environments, thanks to the different SQL Server versions available. SQL Server installation and configuration is fairly straightforward, and can be installed on different hardware, depending on needs. It may be less appropriate where simple database usage is required.
