Migrating Your Data Tier to SQL Server: Strategies for Survival Video
Discussion at Microsoft TechEd North America
Taped on May 13, 2009 at the Los Angeles Convention Center
panel explores the different reasons and approaches for migrating
applications to Microsoft SQL Server. In addition to moving the data to SQL
Server, ideas are presented for transforming applications to offer
additional features while watching budgets.
Examples are provided for migrating data from Oracle, Microsoft Access,
and Excel to SQL Server. That's the easy part but often people need to
consolidate and cleanup multiple applications and databases before upsizing
the data to SQL Server.
Discussions also cover the challenges of maintaining and monitoring the
new database, whether a database administrator is needed, and the life cycle
of a SQL Server application.
