Earlier I blogged about SQL SERVER – Getting Started with Azure Data Studio. After reading the blog post, I receive an email from a reader asking about the primary difference between Azure Data Studio (ADS) and SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Well, before we start the conversation let us see the following image.
Do you still use SQL Server Management Studio or do you use Azure Data Studio? I was recently asked during my recent Comprehensive Database Performance Health Check, Well, the answer is I am still using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) as I find it very comfortable and it still has many features which are not available in Azure Data Studio (ADS). I do not think that ADS is a replacement of SSMS. They are built for a totally different purpose for a different audience.
