Featured Presentation:

SQL Auditing? Really?

Juliana Austin, Senior Business Intelligence Developer Consumer Services

SQL Auditing was released in SQL 2008, but some people still aren't using it. Come to this session to learn how and why as a dba we can use it to help us help ourselves, (really!). Auditing helps with the question of what happened and when and it's useful when troubleshooting. Find out: How do you use it, why would you use it and how do you set it up?

About Juliana:
Juliana Austin has worked in the IT industry as a developer, analyst, or DBA for almost 20 years. She gets most excited to come to work when performance tuning is on the agenda, but a regular day developing in SSMS, SSRS, or SSIS is pretty darn good. Outside of sql enjoyment, she enjoys traveling and practicing on her upright bass with her hillbilly friends.
