It’s easy to connect to Microsoft SQL Server with SQL Operations Studio and perform routine database operations—overall lowering the learning curve for non-professional database administrators who have responsibility for maintaining their organization’s SQL-based data assets.
As more organizations adopt DevOps for application lifecycle management, developers and other non-professional database administrators find themselves taking responsibility for developing and operating databases. These individuals often do not have time to learn the intricacies of their database environment, making hard to perform even the most routine tasks. Microsoft SQL Operations Studio takes a prescriptive approach to performing routine tasks, allowing users to get tasks done fast while continuing to learn on the job.
Users can leverage their favorite command line tools (e.g. Bash, PowerShell, sqlcmd, bcp and ssh) in the integrated terminal window right within the SQL Operations Studio user interface. They can easily generate and execute CREATE and INSERT scripts for SQL database objects to create copies of their database for development or testing purposes. Database developers can increase their productivity with smart T-SQL code snippets and rich graphical experiences to create new databases and database objects (such as tables, views, stored procedures, users, logins, roles, etc.) or to update existing database objects. They also have the ability to create rich customizable dashboards to monitor and quickly detect performance bottlenecks in your SQL databases on-premises or in Azure.
