Make Your SQL Servers Comply with SQL Compliance Manager
Database administrators have a heavy load when it comes to ensuring that their SQL Server environment complies to industry regulations such as CIS, DISA STIG, HIPAA, NERC, PCI DSS, and SOX. Without a tool to automate the auditing and reporting, DBAs may spend days or weeks gathering and consolidating the required information. IDERA has expanded the capabilities of SQL Compliance Manager and SQL Secure to encompass all of the above regulatory guidelines and simplify compliance for database permissions and activities. Join IDERA’s Doug Walsh to see the latest enhancements for SQL Server compliance auditing and reporting in these valuable tools.

The Business Value of Data Modeling
With changes in software development methodologies, the role of the data modeler has changed significantly. In many organizations, data modelers now find themselves on the outside looking in, relegated to documentation "after the fact" rather than active participation where the true value is added. In order to participate fully, modelers must not only adapt to an Agile work style, but must also be able to communicate the business value of model driven development. This session is based on a real case study in which data modeling was introduced part-way through a significant software development project that was quickly losing momentum due to high defect levels. Ron Huizenga will show the contrast in metrics and cost when utilizing skilled data modelers versus a development-only approach, with topics including:

   • Modeler participation in multiple Agile teams
   • Defect categories and impact
   • Measurement and analysis techniques
   • Remediation strategy
   • Breakthrough quality improvements

This "must see" session is not only for data modelers and architects, but also the decision makers for these initiatives, with information that is vital to modelers, IT executives and business sponsors. So bring your boss to the session!

Integrate ERP and CRM metadata into ER/Studio

You might have believed that the metadata in your large, complex, and customized ERP and CRM applications is too difficult and time-consuming to find and use within your ER/Studio models. If you are implementing a data warehouse, data governance, data migration, or other information management project which includes SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, or Salesforce packages, then having access to their data models is critical. And being able to use those data models in ER/Studio will help to accelerate delivery and improve accuracy. You can integrate, manage, and govern your ERP and CRM metadata within your ER/Studio data models to complete the big picture of your data architecture and lineage.

Safyr® is the leading self-service metadata discovery software product for ERP and CRM packages. It has benefited hundreds of customers and works seamlessly with ER/Studio. IDERA has established a reseller agreement with Silwood Technology to promote Safyr as a complement to the ER/Studio data modeling and architecture suite. This extends the powerful capabilities of ER/Studio even further, as the focal point to manage all of your data architecture and governance initiatives.

This webinar will briefly introduce the challenges associated with the metadata in these ERP and CRM packages and demonstrate how the combination of Safyr® and ER/Studio lets you find and use the key metadata as easily and quickly as if it were a standard database.

This 45-minute webinar is on Thursday 23rd August 2018 at 9am PDT / 11am CDT/ 5pm BST.

Quickly Detect and Fix SQL Server Performance Issues to Keep Applications Responsive
Problematic SQL queries can severely reduce the performance of SQL Server and the business-critical applications that it supports. Everyone wants their SQL queries to run faster, but how can you achieve that? It is essential to have access to detailed, real-time information on the performance of SQL Server instances and databases. It is also important to use diagnostic tools to quickly locate and resolve performance issues in early stages before they affect the organization. Join IDERA’s David Terry to learn how to continuously monitor and analyze SQL Server to ensure application responsiveness with SQL Diagnostic Manager.

New SQL Query Tuner adds powerful SQL query optimization capabilities to SQL Diagnostic Manager Pro
DBAs are increasingly being pulled into multiple directions, leaving little time to manage tuning performance and maintain database availability. The result is that only immediate tasks are completed while the opportunity to implement long-term, sustainable solutions are missed. That prioritization leads to inevitable performance problems in production databases. SQL Diagnostic Manager Pro provides advanced monitoring and diagnostics that allow DBAs to detect SQL Server performance problems and their root causes quickly, then tune instance health and performance using prescriptive analytics. Join Mark Slavens to explore how the new SQL Query Tuner maximizes database and application performance by quickly diagnosing and tuning poor-performing SQL queries and indexes for SQL Server. It empowers DBAs and database developers to eliminate performance bottlenecks by profiling databases with wait time analysis, optimizing complex SQL queries with visual diagrams and identifying bottlenecks with load testing.

How to Monitor Always On Availability Groups
High availability is part of an integrated solution to achieve the highest level of data availability and disaster recovery. Always On allows SQL Server administrators to automatically and manually failover a group of databases as a single unit with support for several secondary replicas. More and more organizations realize the importance of an investment in high availability to improve their operational performance and to reduce the impact of downtime when a disaster happens. Join IDERA’s Rey Rios to learn how to monitor Always On availability groups, replicas, and databases with SQL Diagnostic Manager. View Always On health in a dedicated view, and warn about Always On issues with specialized alerts. Resolve past Always On problems with a history browser, and generate reports for Always On configuration topology and health.

Mapping Business Processes to Compliance Procedures
As companies define their business objectives, they also need to establish business processes for the regulatory guidelines they will be required to meet, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, or SOX. Corporate legal teams need to validate the business’s compliance against the defined processes, so that they can understand how data flows and how the enterprise architecture helps with compliance to those regulations. Business and technical teams need a way to share the information on corporate objectives and reconcile it to the technical architecture. IDERA’s Kim Brushaber will discuss the challenges faced and how to use business processes for legal compliance.
