Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System

Microsoft Visual Studio is heavily used by our organization. We perform data maintenance on millions of data lists, and Visual Studio makes it very easy to do that. Data files of various formats can be imported into Visual FoxPro. SQL is then used for queries on the data set.
  • Easy to use. I began my career as a data analyst without any prior knowledge of Visual Studio, and with very little training, I am a completely independent worker.
  • In the business of database management, it is important to have a software that can handle millions of records effectively.
  • My company uses Microsoft Visual FoxPro for database management for clients. It would be helpful if FoxPro fully supported SQL. It currently accepts some SQL commands, but it is not fully compliant.
  • This software has had a great ROI on our company because it has saved us from purchasing more expensive software. Also, it is a one-time purchase, without having to constantly buy updates and newer versions
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Team System
Microsoft Visual Studio was selected mostly because of the price. It is a very inexpensive software, and it is very easy to use. Other software is far more expensive, and they want to take the functionality away from the user. We do not blindly work with data, so we need to be able to see what is happening, and what each function does. Automation is good to a point, but there has to be human intervention for quality control.
Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, Microsoft Access
This software is well suited for database management. It allows the analyst to easily add to and modify the list, no matter what size.
