The SQL Server Problem

There are hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of SQL databases running right now. But, just because they’re a popular relational database solution doesn’t make managing SQL database projects any easier.

SQL Server Expert/Specialist

The expectation: Tech leaders should know how to personally execute the right solution, at the right budget, at the right time. But, we know the job doesn’t work that way and often requires an SQL Server specialist who can help expand your own expertise to help meet expectations.

Maybe you’re going through one of these experiences right now:

  • Migrating your conventional SQL Server or database to a scalable cloud solution like Microsoft Azure
  • Using SQL to centralize and integrate your business intelligence (BI) data
  • Running your company out of Excel spreadsheets and ready to upgrade to an SQL Server solution
  • Having difficulty migrating your data to–or from–a SQL Server or database

Or, maybe you have already decided you need to find a partner to support in SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) or other business intelligence services such as SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) or SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)

No matter your specific situation, our team will help you realize your goals.

FAQs (SQL Server Consulting, Development & Integration)

Can I upgrade SQL Server to Azure?

Yes, Azure now has SQL services which is a server-less instance of SQL that is amazing. No limitations of the server box, but it is scalable, and you don’t need an actual server. However, you can create a VM on Azure, or any cloud computing locally, or in Amazon Web Services (AWS) that is a Microsoft SQL data.

Can I move my Excel data to SQL?

Yes, if you like spreadsheets to run you business, you can store that data in a standardized way in SQL, and then share it with applications, analytics and unlock the power of your data!

How do you migrate data accurately?

We have many data migration tools that can migrate data, test the migration, and even enhance and upgrade your datasets while migrating them to create better information and analytics.

Is my data secure?

SQL data is encrypted, locked down only to database admins (and even many of them can’t see your data)! SQL is a 1,000 times (not an official statistic) more secure than: Emailing your information to who knows who (WikiLeaks?); saving it in an Excel file that isn’t even password protected; saving it to an Microsoft Access Database that isn’t secure, or putting it in an application or website hosted on a shared server (who knows where?)… SQL Server is as Secure as it gets and can be encrypted up to the highest levels technically possible.

Do you work on Azure?

As you can tell, the answer is yes! We recommend clients move all Microsoft technology and custom applications to Azure servers and re-architect their other applications to use Azure web services. We can help you do that as your trusted Azure partner.

Have any other questions? We’d be happy to answer them!
