Microsoft’s vision of a data platform is one that helps organisations manage data anywhere and at any time. With Microsoft SQL Server, organisations can access data from data centre servers, desktops and mobile devices, so they have control over it no matter where it is stored.

IT professionals can work with the data using applications developed with Microsoft .NET and Visual Studio.
