Proposal for SQL Server (350
ESL Inc. is a large company that has been using a series of spreadsheets,
access databases, and manual records to keep track of the majority of the
organization’s internal and customer data. They have grown significantly over
the years and are now looking to you to provide a comprehensive solution for
all their data storage needs. While they are willing to hire staff to maintain
whatever system you propose, they have an expectation that data will be able to
be mined and made useful for various areas within the company.
For this portfolio project, you will create a proposal that addresses the
organization’s needs by recommending the use of Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
This project will require you to reflect on and use knowledge gained not
only in Module 8, but also in all of the previous module lectures and reading
