MS SQL Server table

Overview

Microsoft SQL Server is one of the main relational database management systems on the market that serves a wide range of software applications for business intelligence and analysis in corporate environments.
Based on the Transact-SQL language, it incorporates a set of standard language programming extensions and its application is available for use both on premise and in the cloud.
Microsoft SQL Server is ideal for storing all the desired information in relational databases, as well as to manage such data without complications, thanks to its visual interface and the options and tools it has.
Before you set up your data sync destination, make sure to configure your Source.
The MS SQL Server Table destination supports batch and real-time syncs.
