Microsoft SQL Server BI Software


 

Microsoft SQL Server Business Intelligence (BI) Edition is a database management and BI software solution designed for companies of all sizes.

This system offers relational database management, which allows users to access enterprise data using structured query language. The Business Intelligence Edition of Microsoft SQL Server allows users to perform analysis on the database. The product also features a BI Semantic model that allows users to extract and analyze data from heterogeneous sources.

Microsoft SQL Server features “in-memory analytics,” which allows users to perform queries and analytics while the data is in the RAM, thereby improving the speed of access.

Its scalable and corporate reporting features help management make more informed decisions. Organizations can improve the data quality by using their organizational knowledge and third-party reference data providers to profile, cleanse and match the data.

The IT department can manage data through a BI Semantic Model, which provides a consistent view across multiple data sources.

Microsoft SQL Server has served me well, handling all kinds of tasks from Data warehousing, automated data pushes, reporting, notifications and ad-hoc analysis. Since we started using SQL Server several years ago, it has allowed us to better serve our customers with consistent data analysis and file pushes. There are also plenty of third party add ins which add immense value to the program.

Likes Least

This program has been around for a long time and most of the complaints I have ever had have been ironed out in recent versions. There is not much to dislike about the program. I will say that there are other vendors with better support than Microsoft but it is not lacking in any way, just not quite the personal touch you get from other vendors. Lastly, it would be nice if Microsoft would incorporate some of the extra features that third party vendors have created. They have slowly incorporated some of them in the past and I am sure it will continue though.

Recommendations

Just make sure you have the proper hardware for your instance and you are good to go. There is not a lot of complication surrounding this install and evaluation is a cinch.
