Kathi Kellenberger, Microsoft Data Platform MVP and Simple Talk Editor at Redgate
With IT teams under pressure to deliver software more quickly, it’s a challenge to ensure the consistency and quality of code during database development. Even more so for large teams of application and database developers with different ways of working, or geographically-distributed teams in different locations and time zones. Without the right processes or tooling in place, precious time is wasted on tedious rework. Time which should be used for added value development. Microsoft Data Platform MVP and Editor of Simple Talk, Kathi Kellenberger, highlights how adopting best practices like standardized formatting, code analysis, and database version control, saves your developers time, avoids tedious rework, and leaves them free to deliver on value-added work

Tom Austin, Head Pre-sales Engineer at Redgate
Transitioning from time consuming, error-prone manual deployments to a reliable, repeatable automated deployment process is a complicated journey, particularly with databases. At Redgate we believe it’s important to support the inevitable process and practice change in ways which reduce disruption for the teams involved. It is crucial that automation solutions allow users to start their journey from familiar ground. In this session, Tom Austin shows how automated database deployment can plug into your existing infrastructure and explains how simplifying the organisational transition to automation is at the heart of our ongoing work on automating database deployments.

Grant Fritchey, Microsoft Data Platform MVP and Product Evangelist at Redgate
You may think your databases are secure and you’ve taken all the measures recommended by OWASP, but attacks and intrusion attempts can still take place and the more prepared you are, the best chance you’ll have of thwarting them before they cause actual damage to your estate. In this session Grant Fritchey will go through the steps of detecting and defending against SQL Injection attacks, intrusion attempts, unauthorized configuration changes, database drift and more, using Extended Events and SQL Monitor.
