In enterprise IT, database professionals face a mixed-bag of platforms within their environments -- and the overlapping duties that go along with them. Whether you like it or not, you get asked to support Microsoft SQL Server operations even though you're an Oracle DBA.

In this instructive webcast, experts from Microsoft and Quest with years of experience in both platforms will discuss the biggest issues and areas of interest for Oracle DBAs who need to work on Microsoft SQL Server. You'll learn their tips and tricks for efficiency and gain a deeper understanding of SQL Server to help you add more value than ever to your organization.

Pain of the Week: Easy Ways to Fix Hard SQL Server Problems - Without a Guru

Webcast: Easy Ways to Fix Hard SQL Server Problems – Without a Guru
Date: Thursday, June 17, 2010
Time: 8 a.m. Pacific / 11 a.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. United Kingdom / 5 p.m. Central Europe
Duration: 45-60 minutes
Cost: FREE


In this instructive webcast, you’ll learn straightforward methods for troubleshooting and resolving common poorly performing stored procedures and queries in SQL Server 2008. The presenters will show you how to easily:

  • Read query execution plans and identify bottlenecks in performance
  • Record system performance metrics for trend analysis
  • Design databases and write Transact–SQL code to avoid common problems
  • Understand what an index is, what it does, and how to build one
  • Use industry-accepted best practices and develop your own to arrive at optimal database performance

Much of the webcast is based on Grant’s book, "SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled."

Don’t miss this chance to get practical advice from working experts instead of just theories from academics!
