SQL Server delivers breakthrough mission-critical capabilities with native in-memory performance and operational analytics. Comprehensive security features help protect your data at rest and in motion.
Organizations gain deeper insights into their data with capabilities that go beyond business intelligence to perform advanced analytics directly within their database and present rich visualizations for business intelligence on any mobile device or workstation.
SQL also lets you gain the benefits of hyper-scale cloud, dynamically stretching your warm and cold transactional data to Microsoft Azure in a secured way so your information is always on hand for queries, no matter the size. In addition, SQL Server delivers a complete database platform for hybrid cloud, enabling you to easily build, deploy and manage solutions that span on-premises and cloud.
Structured query language forms the basis of many custom-built and third-party applications, making it a critical component of IT expertise. Microsoft SQL Server training from New Horizons covers all aspects of Microsoft's premier database system for all business sizes. Whether your focus is SQL Server administration, programming, or business intelligence and reporting, New Horizons has the training that is right for you and will fit your busy schedule.
