Emergent Software is a full-service Microsoft SQL Server Consultant group that offers SQL Server consulting services & development on an as-needed basis. We develop new database systems from scratch, audit existing database systems, move data from one system to another, implement reporting platforms and everything in between.
Business Intelligence & Reporting
Within your data are the answers to the questions you ask which inform the decisions you make for your business to be successful. Combine your data with a good reporting platform and you have business intelligence. Tools like Power BI and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) make this easier than ever, but first you need BI experts to properly load, model and optimize your data so that the answers to the questions you ask are correct. Emergent understands data and helps companies achieve true business intelligence.
Data Warehousing & ETL Development
Regardless of whether you choose Tableau, QlikView, Sisense, Power BI or any other business intelligence platform, you will most definitely need pull data from various sources using ETL processes (Extract, Transform & Load) and organize that information in data warehouses. Emergent's SQL team creates robust, highly performant ETL processes and implements data warehouses using best-practice star schema or snowflake schema architecture for companies large and small.
Database Modeling & Design
When it comes to software, nothing is more important for its long-term success than the quality of the underlying database. A poorly modeled database leads to spaghetti code, inability to adapt to changes, and difficulty in creating accurate reporting. Whether you have your own development team or engage Emergent for the entire project, our database architects make sure custom software is built on a solid foundation.
SQL Server Cloud Migration
On-premise SQL Server infrastructure can be a pain to manage. One forward-thinking option is a move to the cloud with Microsoft Azure SQL. Not only will this reduce infrastructure footprint, you get all the latest SQL Server features (no need to regularly upgrade). Automatic backups with custom retention schedules are a cinch. With Azure SQL, you can even enable encryption-at-rest (TDE) which normally requires expensive SQL Server Enterprise edition. Emergent DBAs can move your databases to the cloud.
