  • From my PASS presentations: Custom Test Condition Code: ETL Counts (Team Edition for Database Professionals)

    I'd like to thank the people that attended my sessions at the 2007 PASS Summit in Denver this week! I had a blast and hope you all did as well. The code will be available from the PASS website and on a DVD. For those in my sessions, I promised I would post the code here for my custom Counts test condition for Team Edition for Database ...

  • re: relational databases should be considered legacy technology?

    &nbsp; Stonebraker has unquestionable credentials and a questionable motive: he's selling something. &nbsp; The claim that RDBMS's are outdated and outmoded is roughly equivalent to a claim about OS's being outdated and outmoded - not any particular OS, but Operating Systems in general. &nbsp; And if you showed up in the blogosphere telling ...

  • re: SSIS Design Pattern - Dynamic SQL

    Hi Cenko2, &nbsp; You need to use literals to construct this type of query. The \&quot; literal will print (and not evaluate) quotation makrs. To use your example, &quot;Select \&quot;columnA\&quot;, \&quot;columnB\&quot; from \&quot;owner\&quot;.\&quot;tablename\&quot; where \&quot;columnC\&quot; = 0&quot; would produce the desired results. ...

  • Everything Scales

    The tune to a Bush song is running through my head as I type this... the band, not the president - although imagining the President singing the song is an interesting brain-stretch. It's a fact of IT life that everything scales. Some successfully, even. Problems start when things do not scale successfully (or well). It happens in business. It ...

I maintain this rule about blogging: All complaints must be from experiences 12 months (or more) in the past. A year gives me time to learn from the experience and to put it in perspective. :{&gt; Andy

  • Bad IT Project Management

    My sister-in-law recently passed the PMP certification (congratulations Heather!). I'm waiting for a call from her asking if we need to add resources. The resources comment above is a joke, but it isn't really that funny. It's indicative of my decades of experience with bad IT project managers. I believe and hope I have worked with some of ...
