Upgrade to SQL Server 2019

GEM-CAR 14 dependents on an SQL database. Consequently, Microsoft SQL Server is installed on your computers. Previously, GEM-CAR 14 was compatible with SQL Server 2008 and 2019. However, from now on, it will only be compatible with SQL Server 2019 which Microsoft will support until 2025.

SQL Server 2019 increases the history, file management and query optimization functions efficiency of the SQL database. This translates into major gains in performance and stability. Furthermore, the security processes have been improved, which means more secure usage of your data. This update will not have any impact on the way you presently use GEM-CAR 14.

Microsoft having stopped supporting SQL Server 2008, this version could eventually suffer from compatibility issues. For this reason, we can't guarantee anymore that all GEM-CAR 14 features will continue to work as intended. Furthermore, if you continue to use SQL Server 2008, your data may face security risks.

Please contact us to make an appointment as soon as you are ready to upgrade to SQL Server 2019. If a computer is older than 8 years old, we recommend that you buy a new one on which we will install SQL Server 2019 and GEM-CAR at the same time.
