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.

Ease-of-use

Pros

A very stable environment with clustering, replication, and everything you would expect from an enterprise level product.
Includes a huge number of tools for working with data including import, export, SSIS, SSMS, TSQL and more.
You can build your own custom modules that will integrate directly into the server.
Recent versions allow for installation on Linux.
There are user groups.

Cons

Not the most expensive, but still expensive, especially with free alternatives.
Some of the Microsoft nomenclature around TSQL can be annoying, such as square brackets.
Some features seem unnecessary and ponderous, like XML.

MS SQL Server Perfect Database Management Solution

I would definitely recommend that you read the Windows administration book before you start exploring SQL server.

Pros

SQL server is a great database management product. This is a very fast and stable and at the same time cross-platform solution running on both Linux and Windows operating systems, the security of which is implemented at the highest level. It is also gratifying that SQL server works equally well on both physical and virtual servers, both on the ground and in the cloud. Since this product is produced by Microsoft, it integrates well with other products of this company, such as Power BI. This app can provide you with high availability and a wide selection of options available of your choice, though everything will depend on the edition. And most importantly, many features can be tested completely free using Developer Edition.

Cons

Although SQL server is easy to manage through the graphical user interface, but to understand how it works, to fix some problems you need to read a thick book, and even more than one and read ton of documentation. Does not have good monitoring tools out of the box. For some companies will not be a cheap solution.

My company is primarily a Microsoft shop, so why not MS BI. Our Govt. has an MOU with MS so we get all the tools and we are trained in most things MS so we are comfortable and satisfied with this product. Even our PeopleSoft solutions run on SQL Server.

Pros

1. Easy to use even by non-technical users
2. If you know what you are doing you can extend functionality and flexibility for almost anything you want
3. The above leads me to my next pro : stable IDE and flexible integration with SSAS

Cons

1. A common language to develop and make changes would be nice
2. Its expected that you are an excel expert - but then again who isn't
3. It uses a lot of hardware power - but we have the horses

Pros

Enhancements to Intellisense have been remarkable. Also love that reporting services have been shifted to using Adobe. So clean and simple.

Cons

Only minor improvements. Maybe an automatic "Refresh Local Cache" after adding a table or column. Also, when using built in functions, the system doesn't see the FROM statement automatically.

Overall Microsoft SQL Server BI would have a solution for most requirements of a typical BI solution. The look & feel, as well as how the tool interacts with its users can be improved.

Pros

Microsoft SQL Server BI offers a full set of tools and functionalities for different phases of a BI solution. Since it is a very popular and widely being used, there are a lot of resources available.

Moreover, Microsoft provides tools and services that serves both the upper stream and lower stream of BI services, making the adoption of Microsoft SQL Server BI seamless on existing Microsoft infrastructures.

Cons

A lot of tools are not smart enough and requires intense manual work. For example, SSMS can't recognize and auto-pop newly-created tables/views without restarting; SSIS is not able to refresh the metadata on its own when there is underlying table changes; SSRS offers very limited format control for Excel/PDF export.

Overall its easy, fast and efficient

Pros

The auto fill feature is helpful and works well for digging through a lot of tables.
It works well for managing databases, controlling security for access to the SQL databases, setting up simple scheduled management tasks such as database backups (dumps), and it lets you generate and test queries.

Cons

Often it crashes and needs to be restarted.
Computationally intensive processes can take a long time relative to distributed systems.
Certain aspects such as managing security permissions and accessing logs are not fully intuitive and the location of these items are not accessible from the top level, requiring the user to dig deeper and find them

Pros

With Microsoft SQL, you can run a query for any situation that your data may illustrate. For example, in a healthcare setting, you can run a query on a population of a very specific set of patients and correlate additional datapoints. It's very powerful, and I haven't seen a database program that could quickly run these types of reports.

Cons

The GUI/Management Console isn't intuitive at all. It's basically learning a programming language to get at the reports that you need. It would be nice if it had its own interface, but many times applications are developed with SQL and will have their own GUI to work with their database. If you're working directly in SQL, you'll have to learn its language.

MSSQL is a well-developed relational database. It is a good choice for the big companies needs to work with licenced products.

Pros

It is stable and secure. Big brother to Access. MSSQL is reliable when you have the necessary information to build long term projects.

Cons

Someone who used both MySQL and MSSQL I can easily say that MySQL is a better choice to begin using relational databases because it has a lot of forums, documentation and visual aids online to help you get started. MSSQL is not free and has specific configurations that needs an expert.

It is also a bit slow when it comes to complex queries. Hard to use in operating systems other than Windows which also requires license.

We are working with telecom product, In which we are working with millions of data. We are using sql server as database. It will provide complex analysis on current data. You can manage your data easily using SQL. It will also provide performance tuning advisory so u can improve performance of your database. You can retrieve data using structured query language.It provide us good performance with large amount of data.

Cons

Its cost is much higher and maintenance is also costlier than other option but you can avoid it in case of quality, support and functionality.

That is a relational DBMS that allows programming in hybrid environments, either locally or in the Microsoft cloud. It allows you to transfer databases in a very simple and intuitive way between your local environment and the cloud. It is one of the most secure databases in the world, because it allows transparent data encryption, audits, extensible key management and encrypted backups to protect data in critical workloads, and its storage system allows a query performance much higher than usual. All the processes of analysis, consultation, cleaning, data formatting and access are carried out at a speed that surprises you. It allows to carry out backups and recoveries: they can be configured in advance, which makes their execution carried out in a simple way. It provides extreme compression of tables and indexes and High availability: the downtime caused by updates and revisions disappears or is minimized, in order to guarantee an almost permanent availability. These availability and maintenance status of the databases can be checked easily with a very visual panel. It provides a Task Scheduler which allows you to plan tasks in advance, and they will be executed automatically. It has good documentation. And management of data types and users, which strengthens

When developing a project where a large amount of information must be recorded, it is excellent to use a SQL relational database.
it allows us to store information in the best way so that the data is not cloned and does not find repetitions of these.
Microsoft SQL Server gives us a large number of commands and tools to develop, manipulate, retrieve, create and define data, and can be configured to use multiple instances.
includes a friendly graphical environment that allows the use of commands. it allows us to work in client-server mode and supports storage procedures and transactions.
can be used to develop complex projects that contain three or more layers without any problem

Cons

This software can consume many resources on computers, such as RAM. causing our equipment to freeze. in relation to quality and price, it has a lot of competition compared to other SQL relational database administrators

General database tool

Pros

This is a handy tool when a database is required - it is useful for asset management taking a step up from Access due to more functions

Cons

It can be slow at times but in general it is an adequate tool for the creation and use of a database

Great for database warehouses and relational databases.

Pros

SQL is very user friendly, easy to use and install. The interface is intuitive. Lots of great windows and analytic function with T-SQL. It is very versatile. I like the fact that it has community version that includes all useful features.

Cons

License is very expensive. Not enough for big data purposes. I find it slow when connecting to the cloud.
