Services SQL Server 2012 Readiness
With the launch of Microsoft SQL Server 2012, you have been introduced to a wealth of new features and services that will make your business scale to volumes of data like never before. Many companies around the globe are considering the exciting enhancements in SQL Server 2012 to help them scale out their data warehousing environments in order to handle their big data and cloud computing needs.
Like with any new release of software, the question you need to ask is, “Are you ready for the upgrade?” As with most software upgrades, you need to make sure you can easily migrate existing data marts, ETL Scripts, Cubes, Data Mining Models and more to the new version without major down time in services or completely broken reports. All this can happen if you are not prepared for the upgrade.
Fortunately, Extended Results has been upgrading companies from many different versions of SQL Server - like 2005 and 2008 - right to 2012, without major downtime or issues. Because we are a Gold Microsoft Partner, we get early access to the latest software and are often called upon by Microsoft business groups to assist Microsoft, even in their own migrations. They consider Extended Results one of the BEST when it comes to SQL Server 2012 Readiness and that is why Microsoft has given us a Gold Partner designation for Business Intelligence.
We offer a comprehensive, customizable suite of services to help you plan and migrate your existing Microsoft platform to the latest version, including:
- Analysis of your current environment and BI vision, and a capabilities assessment.
