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. The system offers relational database management, which allows users to access enterprise data using structured query language. The solution allows users to perform complex 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. The software has scalable and corporate reporting features that help management to make decisions that are more informed. Organizations can improve the data quality by using the organizational knowledge and third-party reference data providers to profile, clean, and match the data.

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

Despite the above critique, the troubleshooting and development issues become less and less frequent and all of the positives mentioned above become more noticeable than any cons. Also, although the software can be pricey, it is unnecessary to have a large number of licenses for most businesses as long as a handful of professionals have the skills to role it out and manage it, you can get away with limiting the costs.

Pros

For the 90% of businesses that use Excel at the very least, SQL offers seemless integration for compliling, staging, and connecting multiple data sources in an easily accessible format with little or (in the case of dash boarding and automated refreshes) no training.

Cons

Building a database from scratch is tedious, and sql server is granular enough that minor mistakes can cause big problems and can be hard to fix once an instance has 100s of variables, multiple sources, or connections.

Ok, maybe I am a little biased because I develop on the Microsoft stack. But I have developed a lot of applications using other databases as well including: Oracle, MySQL, and Access. I was really surprised about how much Oracle was lacking as it seems to be one of the top Databases these days. I really don't see Oracle really being that far off from MySQL and MySQL is free! SQL Server is by far the best... most feature rich database in the world. I would take a free SQL Server Express instance over any Oracle database any day of the week

Pros

DTS feature is a powerful and flexible tool. Although Microsoft created it to facilitate data warehousing, the product's usefulness doesn't stop there. DTS simplifies importing and exporting data between any two Object Linking and Embedding Database (OLE DB)-compatible databases. DTS also generates Visual Basic Script (VBScript) files that you can run from the Windows Scripting Host (WSH) or other component object model (COM) environments.

Cons

The lack of Cascading DRI is probably SQL Server's biggest shortcoming in comparison with competing databases in the NT market. Even Access provides support for Cascading DRI. You can use triggers to compensate for this shortcoming, but you don't need to go this route with other databases, so you shouldn't need to do it with SQL Server 7.0. Considering SQL Server 7.0's other features, the fact that this one didn't make the cut is a shame.

I use Microsoft SQL Server daily and generally enjoy the product.

Pros

Microsoft's SQL server is extremely affordable and is relatively easy to use. You can quickly manage data, permissions as well as provide consumers access to the data through SSAS and SSRS.

Cons

Other BI solutions provide more intuitive features and better ETL/ELT solutions. SSIS & SSRS can be clunky, but they get the job done with extremely low overhead relative to Microsoft's competitors. If permissions are mismanaged, they can get messy very quickly.

Likes Best

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.

Hosts our case management software

Pros

We use the MS SQL server to host our case management software. It makes searching through thousands of files and millions of pieces of information remarkably simple. There is no question it has increased our efficiency.

Cons

It's definitely not the easiest type of server to set up and it's easy to run into errors is everything is not set up exactly the way it has to be.

As an Analyst it was good to use an industry standard and reliable tool that was relatively easy to use. Code completion in the Server Management Studio works really well, unlike some of the tools for open source equivalent tools. Full functionality vs other DBs like MySQL, so I was able to complete complex tasks at the database rather than reporting layer which sped analysis time up considerably.

Pros

Industry standard, full featured SQL Database.
Reliable code completion in the SQL Server Manager.
Large Community online able to answer questions.
Ability to Pivot data on the fly.

Cons

Generally considered to be a little expensive.
Proprietary standard.
Open Source could provide alternative solution.

You get everything with SQL Server. A fully functioning database, ETL tool, report server, and multidimensional analysis server. All included in one low price. Features are being added quite frequently, and the software assurance license makes sure you have the best features for the next couple years.

Cons

It can seem a bit fragmented at times. But that is only because there is so much available to you. The documentation out there does require someone with the base knowledge of SQL and programming in general. Biggest problem for me is the separation of PowerBI away from SSRS. That really should be included all together. It is a shame they separate it.

Easy for beginners to install a fairly usable database server, and good connectivity to the Microsoft suite of programming languages and tools.

Cons

Generally backwards functionality of fundamentals, especially with regards to vital components being slung as jobs into SQL Agent - not where they belong at all. Admins and developers coming from other mature relational databases will feel the limitations.

Transaction logs being stored in one large file become cumbersome on large systems in their "full recovery" model; with the only option for txn log archiving to be "tlog backups" run on a regular schedule meaning throttling to demand is almost impossible.

Actual data files are no better; often resulting a a cach22 situation of file bloat vs fragmentation.

Add to this more backwards functionality such as "Replication" (logical replication) agents being SQLagent scheduled jobs that start and intend run indefinitely - until they fail on a condition that would have easily been handled by a dedicated process/thread.

General convenience when writing SQL is also lacking, functions available

Our entire product line (IIS-based web applications) relies on SQL Server. Without it, our business wouldn't function at all.

Pros

As a Systems Administrator, MS SQL Server is one of the easiest DBMS you can use from a management perspective. SQL Server Management Studio is a very robust client, and it allows you to configure everything from either the GUI or SQL scripts. No digging into config files, calling apps from command line, etc. User management in SQL server is easy and straight-forward while being EXTREMELY granular. Plus, it easily connects to Active Directory if you so desire.

The software is very reliable. MySQL can have issues during backups, but not SQL Server. Once you get it set up and configured properly (again, not hard to do), you can leave it running for months without encountering problems.

While SQL Server is by no means cheap, compared to the other enterprise-level DBMS like Oracle, it's quite reasonable. MySQL is free, but it's quite limited when you do a feature-by-feature comparison with SQL Server.

If you're on the fence, install an Express instance (up to 10GB databases with some limitations). You won't be disappointed.

Cons

Like a lot of other Microsoft software, the installer is pretty bloated with prerequisites, components, etc. But that's a fairly small nitpick.

I will also say that RAM management in SQL Server isn't perfect. SQL will, as long as it is regularly used, consume all of the RAM you have allocated it. By default, that setting is 2 petabytes of RAM, so it will slow your system to an absolute crawl, consuming everything it can to the detriment of the OS itself. This means you need to manually allocated a reasonable amount of RAM to SQL knowing full-well that it will likely consume this RAM at all times. That's fine for dedicated database servers, but it's not ideal for people running SQL on laptops.

Aside from that, I have very few complaints about SQL Server.

Comprehensive functionality - you get database engine, analysis services, integration services and reporting services. All pieces play very nicely with one another. You can easily set up SQL server on premises or in Azure. Very large user community with tons of documentation, tutorials and walkthroughs.

Cons

Enterprise edition is very pricey. Anything that you choose to set up in Azure tends to be pricey as well. Overall decent value for the money as long as you stay away from the Azure world. Storage in Azure (even premium storage) is less powerful than even middle-of-the-road SANs.
