Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enabled us to use an Agile approach to the design and implementation of DW solutions. Valuable Features:* SQL Server Integration Services tools* Data Quality Services tools* Master Data Services tools* SQL Server Reporting Services tools* Data Partitioning (Horizontal Partitioning) tools* ColumnStore Indices* In-Memory OLTP tablesImprovements to My Organization:We design and implement DW solutions with SS 2016 Dev Ed tools. This solution has given us high levels of productivity, which has allowed us to use an Agile approach to the design and implementation of DW solutions for our customers, and this Agile approach has in turn given us a competitive advantage in our market.We have also started exploring the use of Microsoft R Client, MS R Services and MS R Server with SQL Server 2016 Dev Ed, which are part of the hosted Data Science package.We are also looking forward the inclusion of Python support in SQL Server 2017 for said hosted Data Science package.We are very interested in complementing DW solutions with Data Science and Machine Learning solutions, which could be a major plus for our existing DW customers, even though all hosted data science tools are only available in Enterprise Ed (for our customers), which again presents the same limiting factor (budget) already mentioned.Having said that, we see that the potential that the hosted Data Science tools offer to some of our customers is large enough to be explored and considered on a case by case basis, with proper ROI analysis.Room for Improvement:We do not have much to complain about SS 2016 Dev Ed in itself, we do have some complaints regarding licensing for SQL Server 2016 Enterprise Ed. In an emerging market like Argentina, it is very steep for our customers to pay U$S 28,000 or more on licensing for an instance of SS 2016 Enterprise Ed, and this poses a limiting factor to our growth.Use of Solution:We have been using SS 2016 Dev Ed for a few months so far, but have been using the previous version (SS 2014 Dev Ed) for more than two years.Deployment Issues:The deployment tools for DW solutions in both 2014 and 2016 editions of SQL Server are part of the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) package. As SSDT is based on Visual Studio, this toolset has been very stable since its inception, both in terms of performance as well as in terms of functionality, so, deployment in 2016 is done in the same way as in 2014, which translates into no issues during deployment.Stability Issues:There were no stability issues.Scalability Issues:There were no scalability issues, even though the Dev Ed does not offer the same level of performance and scalability that the equivalent Enterprise Ed offers.Pertaining to the hosted Data Science package that we have been exploring, we have found an important increase in scalability when comparing the performance of a given solution running as hosted, and the same solution running on the same server with only client R tools.This scalability advantage presents itself as an important reason to consider these tools as a viable solution to some of our DW customers.Customer Service:As usual, MS offers a very good customer service. The amount of resources (self-study materials, online courses, tutorials) is huge, most of it is free.Paid customer service is also very good.Technical Support:Paid tech support is very good and efficient.Previous Solutions:I have always used DW tools from Microsoft since SQL Server 2000.Initial Setup:If prior to the setup you do the proper training, there are no issues with setup, but the learning curve is wide and tall.You could get started fast and sure if you stick to the many Wizards included with the tools, but the scope of said Wizards is limited.Implementation Team:We did not have deployment/implementation issues.ROI:Since SS 2014 Dev Ed, MS is offering these tools free of charge, ROI mainly is focused around training investment. As I have said, we do the training in-house. ROI is around one year (12 months).Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:No issues with pricing and licensing for SS 2016 Dev Ed, as it is free of charge, as mentioned above, the thorny issue with pricing and licensing is with customers. We do our best to design DW solutions that can cover reqs from our customers within the capabilities of SS 2016 Standard Ed.Other Solutions Considered:The cost-benefit ratio offered by Microsoft's DW solutions is, by a long shot, much more convenient for our customers (small and medium companies) than solutions from other vendors, hands down.Other Advice:Consider the ROI (most training investment). If training is not in-house, only hire training from an official Microsoft Training Center in your region. Look for the best Training Center. Once you are done with the training, you can start taking customers for DW projects.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:I teach MOC courses on the design and implementation of DW solutions with the aforementioned tools.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You can share the results of an integration without having to share the file. The performance could be better. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature is the easy installation. The user just needs to know how to read.Improvements to My Organization:The SQL Server is helping us with the most feared corporate problem: Excel spreadsheets. The individual user can perform an integration and share the same results with others without the necessity to "share" the file. This reduces the data traffic on my company network.Room for Improvement:Table partition and memory management. The performance could be better.Use of Solution:I have used it for more than 10 years.Stability Issues:The SQL Server has a big issue when some systems use Java as a primary software interface. This database loses the ability to manage memory, consequently locking the processes and losing performance in the execution of some robust queries.Scalability Issues:Unfortunately, this database doesn't have a good concept of partition table. If you need to create monthly (Jan to Dec) partitions in one table, this action create 12 different files for the same table. In others database this process are more transparent and are capable to create partitions inside the same Database.Technical Support:The technical support team for SQL Server is very friendly if we compare with others commercial database products. Not only with Microsoft but, this database have more technical information published on the internet, books and self-taught users to help.Previous Solutions:I am still using other commercial solutions, but the price of this database is much less expensive than others. It is about four times less expensive.Initial Setup:The initial setup is one of the good things about MSSQL. It is very easy to do and to start the development that you need to use after the installation.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:In my point of view, the MSSQL are the most inexpensive database commercial solution. If do you need to build a consistent ERP for example, with a medium to hard capability and don't have much budget to spend it, this is your solution.Other Solutions Considered:Of course I evaluated other options! I never choose the first option and I always try to look around to find competitive vendor options. I already know and have expertise with IBM/DB2 and Oracle solutions. For this new architecture, MSSQL was the best option at the moment for being a pilot project.Other Advice:I suggest that you are first familiar with the bundle functions and plan some of the functions before starting the project. Find more information about the routines and how easy or hard it might be to start the development when you are thinking about cascade and constraints.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The database engine is one of the most valuable components of the platform. Valuable Features:The database engine within SQL Server 2014 is one of the most valuable components of the platform to me.The engine provides a solid and efficient database backend for any relational database requirement, performance is strong and there are options such as table, index partitioning and columnstore indexes that enhance the scalability of the platform.In addition to the database engine, I would also highlight the built-in integration services platform (SSIS) for ETL purposes as well as the Reporting and Analysis Services functionality (SSRS and SSAS respectively).One of the key features that I would use regularly to support the delivery of a Data Warehouse solution would be the Master Data Services (MDS). This is an extendable Master Data Management platform that works very well out-of-the- box.Improvements to My Organization:As an IT Services organization, our companies have used this product in dozens of customer deliveries for solutions such as ERP applications, Data and Analytics solutions, and more. We also use the product internally as the backend for some of our most important operational systems.Room for Improvement:The user interface to the web frontend of MDS could be more intuitive and the Analysis Services platform has not evolved much in recent times, these are the two things that come to mind.Use of Solution:This specific version (2014), I have used for approximately three years. However, I use other versions of the software on a regular basis, such as 2012 and 2016.Stability Issues:There were no issues with stability.Scalability Issues:There were no issues with scalability.Technical Support:Microsoft has a solid support structure for the SQL Server platform and I’ve always been provided with a good service.Previous Solutions:We used a combination of RDBMS platforms and we still do in addition to this solution.Initial Setup:The installation and configuration was very straightforward. The full setup typically takes less than one day.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:The Enterprise license includes features that enrich the product experience as well as performance and scalability options. Choose this over the standard license where possible.Other Solutions Considered:We reviewed many RDBMS platforms for suitability depending on the requirements of the customers. We would also use the likes of Oracle 12c and Amazon RDS.Other Advice:Install a trial version as soon as you can and give it a try.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:My company (Version 1) is a Microsoft Gold Partner. We are also an Oracle Platinum Partner as well as Amazon, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the database behind the tool, the server does what we need it for to get to our goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The High Availability feature provides us with failover if a node becomes unavailable, but it lacks realtime data refresh in SSRS. Valuable Features:It's a solution that's always on.Improvements to My Organization:It has High Availability, therefore provides failover if a node becomes unavailable.Room for Improvement:* Few in SSIS* Realtime data refresh in SSRS* More datasources in Power BIDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
