MDS customer success stories RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we are evaluating MDS (sql server 2012) and my manager asked me to find references for the successful implementations of MDS for large customers?

    Where can I find those customer success stories?

    thank you!

  • Hi !
    We implement MDS 2012 in the largest Russian Bank, in-house, gradually.
    In some cases, MDS just saves us, when we solve critical business cases!
    I wrote 2 articles about this  (sorry, in Russian only).
    But we identified a number of significant observations, a number of requirements for MDS.
    We hope to premium positive support from Microsoft.

  • Good to know that MDS is helping to solve critical business cases.

    Let us know your feedback/observations and I will channel it to the right forums.

  • Here is what I learned from my research so far:

    a. MDS is being adopted but very cautiously.  There are no large US companies that use it and openly talk about it.

    b. the other major downside: there is no MDS road map to be found anywhere on the web.... when somebody popped up this question on multiple forums...just silence...

    c. There are no improvements for MDS in SQL 2014. Has MSFT focus shifted?

  • Hi, MDS has been used by large U.S. companies.  For example, we just recently resolved one MDS issue for Intel. 

    Regarding the roadmap, we shared the roadmap in the recent SQL MVP summit section, so there is a roadmap for MDS. 

    There will be improvements in SQL vnext so please stay tuned.  In addition, we are going to release new version of Excel add-in in days.  We will announce in the forum as well.

    Please feel free to post your feature requests and we will look into them.

  • Hi Sherry,

    is it possible to share this roadmap? Can you send me a link?

    thank you!

  • Hi, currently roadmap can only be shared with customers who are under NDA.  If your company is interested to join SQL TAP program, please reply me offline and we can go from there.
