How did you get in there, and who said you could do that?

The presentation will cover SQL Server Authentication, Windows Authentication, Roles, Groups, and how they interact. It will also cover the basics of SQL Server permissions: what permissions there are, how they are applied, and an overview of how the permissions interact.

This presentation won't cover every aspect of SQL Server authentication and permissions, that would take a day or more! It will give newcomers a good understanding of what is possible and how to go about it. It will also give experienced users a review of the important points and maybe a new trick or two!

Migrating to SQL Server 2017

How do you design and implement a safe and successful migration from an older version of SQL Server to SQL Server 2017 with no data loss and virtually no downtime? What if you have a limited hardware budget for the upgrade effort and you are worried about the core-based licensing in SQL Server 2017? How can you choose your hardware wisely in light of the new licensing model? How can you convince your organization that the time is right to upgrade to SQL Server 2017? This session will cover several different methods for migrating your data to SQL Server 2017 while meeting these objectives and minimizing your hardware and licensing costs. You will also learn how to help make the case that a complete data platform upgrade makes excellent sense from a business perspective. You will also learn how to do effective capacity planning for the new environment to ensure that you have the best performance possible with a manageable SQL Server 2017 licensing cost.
