Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Applications included with SQL Server, part of SQL Server 2008 Essential Training.
When you're new to SQL Server you'd be forgiven for thinking that there is one…program, one application that manages all of it.…But if you could look at the desktop or the laptop of a typical SQL Server…database administrator, you'd see a bunch of installed Microsoft programs that…they would consider to be just part of their SQL Server 2008 toolkit.…In fact, these that I'm looking at right now are the programs that you'd see…on your Start menu after a typical SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard edition installation.…
Although the SQL Server database engine itself might be installed on a separate…machine in your back office or data center or even in the cloud, these programs…are what you'd want to have on your desktop or laptop.…They are what you're going to use to connect to the SQL Server machine.…Now you could ask which one is the most important and of course I'd say that…they're all important.…But for this course we're initially interested in three of the available tools…and really in one of them more than anything.…
