Unplanned
Downtime
Organizations come to rely on many
line-of-business applications to manage
and surface the business data that is
necessary for day-to-day operations.
Unplanned downtime can stop business
cold and leave employees idle.
ENTERPRISE EDITION offers a rich feature set
that provides high availability, increased
reliability, and reduced business impact when
failures occur.
35 percent of companies have lost mission-critical data due to unplanned downtime.
(Continuity Central, 8/18/2008)
Organizations may need to pay overtime or hire temporary workers to catch up on
data entry that couldn’t be done during the downtime.
Without access to customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource
planning (ERP), or order data, the organization may not have the information
necessary to address customer needs.

Disaster
Recovery
When disaster strikes, organizations need
a way to quickly recover their data and
resume normal operations as quickly as
possible. Time spent waiting for backups
to load represents lost opportunities to
connect with customers, partners, and
suppliers.
ENTERPRISE EDITION has the tools to get
you back up and running quickly and
smoothly.
86 percent of companies stated that any unplanned downtime causes a business issue.
(Continuity Central, 8/18/2008)
Fully redundant disaster recovery centers that can begin service immediately are
difficult to create and maintain.
Data that hasn’t been backed up yet or isn’t restorable is either lost forever or must be
recreated.

As databases grow, the probability
increases that failure of a backup

Mirroring a media set increases
backup reliability by reducing the

Planned
Downtime
In a worldwide economy, data needs to
be available 24 hours a day. However,
systems still need to be maintained, and
finding a balance between maintenance
and availability can be difficult.
ENTERPRISE EDITION provides the tools
necessary to ensure high availability while still
allowing for the maintenance time necessary
to keep your servers secure and wellmaintained.
Systems remain unpatched while organizations wait for the next maintenance window.
A commitment to 99.99% uptime leaves only 53 minutes per year for system upgrades,
patching, and other tasks that might require the system to be unavailable.

Resource
Management
Reporting and other data-intensive
business processes can put a higher than
normal load on database servers. Many of
these processes are not urgent but still
compete with the normal workload, which
causes delays and makes business
applications less responsive.
ENTERPRISE EDITION has the capabilities to
manage resources and ensure efficient,
predictable response times.
Impatient users call the help desk, which raises support costs. Additional servers
purchased to handle spikes sit idle most of the time.
Users postpone tasks because those tasks take longer than normal.
Mission-critical tasks are slowed down by reports that are important but not
urgent. Customers and partners are unable to get the information they need in a
timely manner.

Consolidation
Reduce the significant costs associated
with server farm hardware, software
licenses, electricity, cooling, maintenance,
and administration by consolidating
multiple servers onto fewer, more
powerful ones.
ENTERPRISE EDITION supports multiple
consolidation scenarios to provide flexibility
and choices in reducing server and storage
needs.
Having multiple servers in different parts of the organization leads to needing
multiple administrators to maintain, support, and patch those servers.
Costs increase for hardware, software licensing, utilities, and data center space.
According to Forrester Research Inc., typical Windows server utilization is in the
range of 8 to 12 percent.

Security and
Governance
Data is the lifeblood of business, key to day-today operations, and long-term success. Lost or
stolen customer data can mean losing customer
trust, paying fines, and handling lawsuits.
Compromised data that is associated with
products or research and development can
mean loss of competitive advantage. Companies
need to know who is seeing that data.
ENTERPRISE EDITION has the tools to secure
data and track its use to limit the possibility of
data loss.
A security breach can cost nearly $14 million per incident; $182 in notifications for
each compromised record.
On average, 2.6% of an organization’s customers will move to a competitor after a
security breach.
Losing intellectual property can result in costs of gathering the data and lost
competitive advantage.

& Reporting
Reporting databases and data warehouses
can make reporting faster and provide
unparalleled insight into your business,
but very large data sets can limit or
eliminate those benefits.
ENTERPRISE EDITION provides enterpriseclass scalability and features to meet today’s
reporting and data warehousing needs.
Reporting databases and data warehouses that are updated at different times can
have different data.
Inaccurate or incomplete data can lead to making the wrong decisions. Better
reporting supports better decision-making and enables business priorities.
A reporting solution that prevents adding more data or reports limits the
effectiveness of the reporting solution.

“...ORF has found an immediate improvement of 15 percent in data loading.
We consider that a great advantage when you can get 15 percent faster data
loading without having to change a line of our own code.”

Table Partitioning
o
Manage and access subsets of data
quickly and efficiently
o
Reduce time spent troubleshooting
storage allocation issues
o
Speed data load and maintenance
operations
o
Take advantage of all available CPUs
in the machine to complete
operations more quickly
“Enhancements in partition query dramatically reduce the effects of lock
escalation… improving availability and improv[ing] query response time.”

Query Parallelism
o
SQL Server Enterprise automatically
executes operations in parallel by
splitting work across all the CPUs in
the machine, which allows for larger
queries or quicker responses
o
Data mining in parallel takes
advantage of all CPUs in the
machine to examine more data and
give results more quickly
“For most large queries SQL Server generally scales linearly… this means that if
we double the number of CPUs, we see the response time drop in half.”
— Craig Freedman, Coauthor, Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: Query Tuning and Optimization
Analysis
The ability to analyze data for trends that
predict possible outcomes can provide
insight into business operations, optimize
sales, limit waste, or quickly find and stop
fraud.
ENTERPRISE EDITION deepens business
understanding by providing the means to
quickly and easily analyze your data.
Without an understanding of data and its implications, predicting what to sell or
manufacture becomes a guess.
Lack of insight can result in inability to predict customer trends and capitalize on
opportunities.
Without the ability to spot anomalies that could indicate a problem such as fraud
or improper pricing, the problem cannot be fixed.

"Using Excel as an interface for Self-Service BI, we are modeling, analyzing and
pivoting millions of records in memory and publish it to SharePoint in few minutes
and other people being able to access it from a URL. It is fast and easy”

Modified
Clustering
Algorithm Extensibility
o
Change the default algorithm for
analyzing data to discover new and
different patterns in the data
o
Filter and restrict the mining model
in intelligent ways to fine-tune
results
o
Provide greater business value by
customizing mining and reporting
data to specific business needs
Different businesses have different goals and need to make different decisions. [Data
mining technologies] are extensible, enabling you to add plug-in algorithms that
meet uncommon analytical needs that are more specific to an individual business.

o
Gain insight into how results were
obtained by drilling into more detail
o
Ability to query the model data, to
understand how the model was
trained and if it is still similar to the
data that is being reported on, to
find inaccurate reporting models
The ability to query directly against the data mining structure enables users to
easily include attributes beyond the scope of the mining model requirements,
presenting complete and meaningful information.
