Microsoft SQL Server

SQL Server is Microsoft's flagship database product, and as such one of the top choices for everyone with database needs. Not surprisingly, SQL Server is also the first choice for many .NET projects. We have experts on staff that can help you with your SQL Server needs, no matter whether those revolve around the basic setup of a new SQL Server database, migration of data, or the tuning of an existing database.

We can help you with small scenarios as well as large-scale data warehouses, clustering, data mining, and business intelligence scenarios. And of course, we can also help you with related tasks such as SQL Reporting. And of course, we can help you with various deployment scenarios, no matter whether you are installing SQL Server on a local machine, local network, or in the Cloud.

Note: We also offer services that are related to SQL Server but not strictly part of SQL Server, such as SQL CE, or SQL Express.

Common Technologies

  • SQL Server database development
  • Database design
  • Performance tuning
  • Administration and maintenance tasks
  • Data migration
  • SQL Reporting
  • Data Warehousing
  • Business Intelligence
  • Security
  • Windows Azure

Starting an SQL Server Project

As many of our projects, we usually start SQL Server Projects (which are typically, but not always, part of larger projects) with a Vision & Scope Workshop to determine overall goals of the project, the size of the effort, and best approach. Based on the findings of this process, we decide on next steps together with the customer. Often, but not always, that may be a Proof of Concept or Prototype phase that subsequently moves into a further standard development process.

Purchase Options

SQL Server projects come in all shapes and sizes, and the most appropriate business arrangements for such projects needs to be determined on a case-by-case basis together with the customers. In many cases, SQL Server projects are set up as “time-and-materials” projects billed on an hourly basis (either billed on an ongoing schedule, through service agreements, or as pre-paid hourly blocks). Sometimes, SQL Server projects can also be built on a fixed-price basis, but due to the complexity and size of such projects, this is only possible under specific pre-conditions and specific scenarios.

Purchasing Our Services

We offer our services in a variety of ways to meet every possible need. Options range from plain time and materials setups, to hourly blocks and montly service contracts, and sometimes even fixed price setups (especially for mobile "apps").

System Architecture

Constructing systems properly is the most important aspect of any software project. With the right architecture (and proper management), almost any problem can be compensated. If, on the other hand, the architecture is wrong, you have an extremely costly and time-intensive problem. We can help you to avoid these problems and reduce overall project risk, not just by sharing our own expertise, but also by letting you share in the experiences we have gathered through our CODE Magazine (authors and readers), CODE Training (trainers and attendees), events (speakers and attendees), RD, MVP, and other networks. This is a treasure trove of information you simply cannot get any other way. Can you think of anything else that could have positive impact of similar magnitude on your project?

Mentoring & Custom Training

There are a lot of choices to be made, a lot of lessons to be learned, and a lot of best practices to find and absorb. CODE Consulting not only explains how to implement your new project, but we help you understand why and when you should make the trade-off to do it a different way. We can work with your team to plan your project and guide you through the difficult parts.
