SQL Server Previous Solutions

Senior Developer at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
Yes, in the past I have worked with different versions of SQL server and have switched due to upgrades to utilise the latest version. I have also used Oracle, Tableau, SAP, and Jaspersoft. The main reason I went for SQL Server is because it felt easier and more adaptive. Also, most of the products we use within the organisation are Microsoft-based, so that provided an extra advantage over the rest. View full review »

I did not use a previous solution. I have heard of other companies using Microsoft Access or Excel for similar problems. However, after hearing the headaches they have, I would not recommend those for large scale projects. View full review »

Postgre has a weird syntax and it is slower than MS SQL. The command line interpeter makes it complex to learn. View full review »
