Database Education Services

Database Education Services have as a primary goal to assist and teach the application and software development teams how to leverage the tools included with their databases. This enables your team to help with their application and code tuning capabilities. This portion of the service is critical to agile development teams by allowing them to self-service on performance reporting when making code and tuning changes. This service includes ongoing education and demonstration for the following:

  • Reporting tools - SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)
    • SSRS is a server-based report generation software system from Microsoft. 
It provides a unique interface into Microsoft Visual Studio so that developers as well as SQL administrators can connect to SQL databases and use SSRS tools to format SQL reports in many complex ways. SSRS also provides 
a 'Report Builder' tool for less technical IT workers to format SQL reports 
of lesser complexity.
  • Integration tools - SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS)
    • SSIS is a platform for data integration and workflow applications. It features a fast and flexible data warehousing tool used 
for data extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL). The tool may also be used to automate maintenance of SQL Server databases and updates to multidimensional cube data.
  • Tuning Advisor for query and stored procedures
  • SolarWinds Orion AppInsight for Microsoft SQL Server
