Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 - with comprehensive self-service BI solutions

With SQL Server 2018 and its successor release SQL 2008 R2, companies and individual users will have a powerful database solution to make all relevant data available anywhere and anytime - for local applications as well as for websites. Due to its high scalability, SQL Server 2008 also meets the requirements of large organizations and companies for extensive application possibilities. The integrated data warehouse and business intelligence functions also enable comprehensive data integration - for differentiated analyses as well as prediction models and reports. Developers have several options for using these versions of SQL Server with PHP, ASP, and Windows.

Microsoft's functional BI solution is based on the 3 pillars Data-Warehouses (DWH), Data-Mining and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), which are supplemented by various analysis specifications and practical visualizations. In SQL Server 2008 R2, the business intelligence functions are further enhanced by OLAP-optimized Power Pivot, Report Builder and other performance tools.

Cross-platform data processing is supported by the seamless integration of Visual Studio and ASP.NET. This gives you everything you need to gain a decisive competitive advantage over your competitors.

Typical SQL Server 2008 services include

  • reporting services
  • Analysis Services
  • integration services
  • SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) and
  • Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) with Object Linking and Embedding (OLEDB)

The 2008 version of SQL Server also offers a number of improvements in terms of security: Strong, transparent data encryption features such as Transparent Data Encryption protect data from loss or theft, while shielding both data tables and log files from unauthorized access. These features are complemented by a new monitoring system with strong user authentication, where user data can be stored in SQL Server or Active Directory.

Administrators will also appreciate many new functions and features in SQL Server 2008. In particular, SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS): Provides an integrated environment for developing, configuring and managing the individual SQL Server components. SSMS is supported by Visual Studio, so that the available graphical tools also provide a particularly clear presentation.

At Wiresoft you will find SQL Server 2008 as well as the successor version SQL Server 2008 R2 in different editions - among them certainly the SQL Server solution best suited for your requirements. Already the 2008 version covers many Business Intelligence applications of smaller companies. And with a 2008 R2 Edition, larger companies also have a particularly powerful server product at hand, which can be flexibly adapted due to its scalability of functions.

SQL Server 2008 R2 - even more Business Intelligence for your company

Compared to its predecessor, the SQL version 2008 R2 primarily brings improvements in BI functions in order to support SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010 even better. The most important goal is still the provision of comprehensive self-service BI solutions in companies to meet the increasingly complex requirements of data analysis and provision. SQL Server 2008 R2 also provides improved connectivity between SQL Azure Server and the individual BI tools. The highly scalable BI platform of SQL Server 2008 R2 includes the following services, which include new features as well as improved functionality:

  • Analysis Services (SSAS)
  • Integration Services (SSIS)
  • Reporting Services (SSRS)
  • Master Data Services (MDS)
  • Data Mining and Data Warehousing
  • service broker
  • StreamInsight
  • Report Builder V3.0

Learn more about each Business Intelligence feature in SQL Server 2008 R2.

SSAS for SQL Server 2008 R2

The Analysis Services provide the basis for all reports and OLAP analyses as well as data mining. SSAS offers an integrated, uniform view of all business data. Supplemented by Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), the data can be analyzed from different aspects - such as hierarchies, dimensions, drill-downs or drill-ups - and displayed as a cube.

PowerPivot for Excel 2010 is also available as an add-in for SSAS in conjunction with the Office 2010. This allows even large amounts of data to be imported from the data warehouse and analyzed. PowerPivot contains various optimizations as well as functional enhancements, such as the supported field search by name and named sets. Relationships between unlinked tables in a pivot table can also be recognized. These PowerPivot analyses and reports can be made available to other employees via the SharePoint Document Libraries and can be continuously updated.

Integration Services (SSIS)

The SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) known from earlier SQL Server versions are also available in the SQL 2008 R2 release. They form the three cornerstones for all Business Intelligence applications in companies: Integration, analysis and reporting of data. They are also the basis for all ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) processes and provide a broad repertoire of features for data warehouses.

Reporting Services (SSRS)

The practical SQL Server Reporting Services offer some interesting functions, especially for text fields: For example, they can be rotated 270 degrees, page breaks within tablix data areas and groups etc. extend the layout options when creating reports.

Master Data Services (MDS)

Master Data Services is a new feature in SQL Server 2008 R2. They now make it possible to manage data centrally and make it available for different applications at the same time. This includes the management and protection of product, customer and account data during transactions.

Data Mining and Data Warehousing

In the area of data warehouse, the improved performance in SQL Server 2008 allows faster integration of data into the data warehouse. This also includes optimized administration and performance, especially of large partitioned tables.

Service Broker

With Service Broker, developers can implement native asynchronous messaging functions in SQL Server. Thereby it is possible to distribute the workloads between several databases without complicated programming. In SQL Server 2008 R2, Service Broker includes improved statement capabilities for handling unprocessable messages in a queue, which also supports communication between different databases.

StreamInsight for SQL Server 2008 R2

With StreamInsight, the SQL Server 2008 R2 version also features CEP (Complex Event Processing) technology. StreamInsight allows the continuous monitoring, processing and control of data streams in real time. This technology is used especially in electronic commerce for the processing of credit card information, logistics and network monitoring.

Report Builder V3.0

Report Builder V3.0 is also a new feature of SQL Server 2008 R2. Using caching, it allows faster display of reports and graphics. Certain areas of reports can be published as web content via SharePoint. In addition, new data types in geoinformation systems allow clear representations using geographical maps.

Administrator functions in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

Administrators will also appreciate the many wizards, repositories, and features in SQL Server 2008 R2 that make it easy and simple to manage, meet business requirements, and meet service level agreements (SLAs). SQL 2008 R2 also includes improved support for PowerShell 2.x.

SQL Server Management Studio also provides effective administration capabilities for SQL Server 2008 R. The integrated object explorer collects relevant information from all registered servers and the new dashboard allows a clear presentation of various server and database parameters.
