Microsoft Parallel Data Warehouse Review

Good querying capabilities and it is quite easy to scale


What is our primary use case?

The primary use cases for this solution are for recording and transactions.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for me is querying.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better visualization features.

A stateless update functionality for the forms may help. Without this, you have to perform updates manually using the drop-down menu.

The user interface should be more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the SQL Data Warehouse for fifteen years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is based on the set up from the outsourcing team. There are a lot of things to consider, including the connection.

It is constantly being used with transactions occurring every minute.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is quite easy to scale this solution. The whole company of approximately 2,500 people uses it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution, we used Oracle. We switched because my daily requirements are on Microsoft SQL. 

How was the initial setup?

I find this setup of this solution to be simple, but that is based on fifteen years of working with it.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

2016
