Session Title – More Fundamentals for Your SQL Server Toolbox [DBA]
SQL Server has evolved many times over the years. This evolution has brought a need for every DBA to enhance or at least revisit their fundamental methods for tuning and troubleshooting. In this session you will explore how SQL Server has made the data professional’s job easier through the addition of new features and enhancements to some of the well-established features. This session will expose you to some of the new toys now available to you (such as execution plan changes and new Dynamic Management Objects) that will help improve your efficiency at troubleshooting and tuning SQL Server. Coming away from this session, you will have more tools to help showcase your rock-star skills back on the job.
