  • Dragged Kicking and Screaming into the Clouds

    When I first heard about the cloud I rolled my eyes. This will never take, it sounds very much like the mainframes we came to know and hate (my first database project was killing a mainframe that was costing our non-profit organization $15000 a month, which as a non-profit was simply horrible.) Even four years ago when I was writing "Pro SQL ...

  • New Article: Dynamic Data Masking in SQL Server 2016 and Azure SQL DB

  • BI on your terms with SQL Server 2016

    The last few years Microsoft's strategy was all about cloud first (or cloud only?), releasing new BI products and updates to existing products to the cloud in high pace without almost any investments in on-premises BI.

  • sp_whoisactive and Azure SQL Database

    I've received a number of requests over the past couple of years for an Azure-specific version of sp_whoisactive.
