SolidQ Journal for July 2011 is out now

Great to see SolidQ Journal for July now out the door. You'll find it here:

Rushabh Mehta provides part 1 of an article on building an SSIS Management Framework. The framework helps to institute a methodology that puts standards and practices into place so that the process of development becomes structured around a set of principles. This helps to avoid big differences in development styles within teams.

Miguel Lopez describes an area that I've become quite fascinated with lately: the Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket. Miguel also discusses the state of the Open Government Data Initiative. This helps answer one of the most common questions I've received from attendees at sessions I've been presenting on spatial data: Where did you get that data from?

I'm really excited that Paul Turley has joined SolidQ and I got to spend a week with Paul recently at the SQL Server Analysis Services Maestro event. Paul has written his first article for the journal on the art of report design.

Gilberto Zampatti shows how to create and configure SharePoint service applications via PowerShell. This is part 1 of the article with part 2 likely to follow next month.

Paras Doshi has also provided a part 1 article. His article is on performance tuning of SQL Azure databases.

And finally, to round out the month, the ever reliable Herbert Albert and Gianluca Hotz complete their mini-series on SQL Server Agent. This month, they task about how to create scripts that wait for jobs or job steps to finish executing and scripts that report on the status of the SQL Server Agent service.

Looks like a good month of content again. And, as always, it's free. Get it here:
