Compare and Synchronize your SQL Server Schemas

DBAs and database developers often need to identify changes and reconcile differences between databases to ensure consistency within their environment. This can be challenging to do manually with SQL Server and other platforms. Having a tool that can automate this effort can improve your productivity and database quality.

Join IDERA's Devin Gallagher to learn how Aqua Data Studio's Schema Compare feature finds differences in DDL statements between database objects in two schemas and allows users to synchronize the source schema to the target schema.

Managing SQL Server Upgrades using the Query Store and Compatibility Level Settings

Microsoft continues to release new versions of SQL Server which means we need to perform upgrades to stay current. In addition, with SQL Server 2008 and 2008R2 going off of support, many DBAs and developers find themselves facing the need to upgrade these servers as well. While SQL Server upgrades offer the benefit of exciting new features, they also carry the risk of performance degradation, courtesy of SQL Server optimizer changes.

In this webinar, you will learn about how to use the Query Store, Microsoft’s flight data recorder for SQL Server to identify query plans that have changed for the worst after an upgrade. You will learn about query patterns that are most likely to be affected by recent optimizer changes. Finally, you will learn about Microsoft’s new support policy for SQL Server that lets you use older compatibility modes forever.

Straight Talk to Demystify Data Lineage

Are you sure you trust the data you just used for that $10 million decision? To trust data authenticity, we must first understand its lineage. However, the term "Data Lineage" itself is ambiguous since it is used in different contexts. "Business Lineage” links metadata constructs to specific terms in a business glossary. This approach is used by numerous Data Governance solutions. This approach alone comes up short, since it doesn't trace the real flow of information through an organization. "Technical Lineage" traces data's journey through different systems and data stores, providing an audit trail of the changes along the way. True "Data Lineage" combines both aspects, providing context to fully understand the data life cycle. Every step-in data's journey is a potential source for introduction of error that could compromise Data Quality, and hence, business decisions.

In this session, David Loshin offers a comprehensive discussion of data lineage and associated Data Quality remediation approaches that are essential to build a foundation for Data Governance.

Keep SQL Server’s Always On Running Smoothly

Successful organizations realize the importance of investing in high availability to reduce the impact of downtime when a disaster happens. SQL Server provides Always On Availability Groups to automatically and manually failover a group of databases as a single unit with support for several secondary replicas.

Join IDERA's Rey Rios to learn how to monitor, alert, diagnose, and report on the performance of Always On availability groups, replicas, and databases with SQL Diagnostic Manager.
