Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft SQL Server

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.
  • 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
  • Database backup and recovery functionality need improvement. Sometimes I have observed that when you try to restore a backup to a previous date/state, it does not work as expected, and restore fails.
  • Cost gets higher on integrating with Azure SQL
  • Generate Scripts feature to quickly generate database script for the required tables and records.
  • Simple process to deploy Microsoft SQL Server Database to Azure SQL Database.
  • Vulnerability Scan option to check the health and security of the database.
  • Easy to install and deploy on multiple servers.
  • Fast and automated data migration from SQL Server to Azure SQL.
