Whether your business needs to keep track of inventory, customer information, employee information or vendor pricing information, your company likely uses some sort of database infrastructure. The best databases are able to quickly find and return the information you’re looking for. SQL (Structured Query Language) is the standard way to access database information. Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. Most accounting, ERP and HR applications utilize SQL Server as their backend database. In today’s technology world, it is rare that a company does not have an application that utilizes SQL in some fashion.
When it comes to small and medium-sized businesses, Microsoft SQL is one of the most popular and readily available database management systems in the world. With thoughtful implementation and proper database management, SQL Server can provide your organization with an invaluable resource for daily operations and intelligent business decision making. Since SQL Server is rarely purchased as a “stand alone” product, you may not know your organization is using it. Or, you may believe that since it was purchased and implemented as part of your software package, there is nothing else that needs to be done with the SQL database. Lack of management or incorrect administration of the database could lead to crashing of your application or loss of data. If your software application requires an upgrade of your version of SQL, you want someone who has the expertise and experience performing that upgrade.
