Redgate will be remotely sponsoring the June meeting of the Spokane Area SQL Server Users Group. In this month’s meeting, DBA and Friend of Redgate Josh Smith will be introducing the group to Redgate’s SQL Data Catalog and explaining why a data catalog is going to be an important tool in protecting your data.
With laws like GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act or the upcoming Washington Privacy Act organizations need to provide more details about the data they’re storing or risk significant fines. We’ll look at the features of two tools for collecting and reporting on meta-data for SQL databases: Azure Data Catalog & Redgate’s SQL Data Catalog. We’ll then take a quick tour of SQL Data Catalog in particular and explore the process for creating and applying a taxonomy to our data.
Josh Smith is the senior-most DBA at a mid-sized credit union and leader of the Spokane Area SQL Server Users Group. He is not the most fond of writing about himself in the third person but attempts to be good natured about it. He believes strongly in participating in and contributing to the SQL Server community as much as possible.
