    Boring is stable, stable is good - best practices in practice  
    09:50 - 10:30

    Alexander presents a run-down of a metric ton of best practices and tips & tricks he's amassed through the years. This content is relevant for both Azure & DBA Admins

    Have you ever wondered why there are so many, sometimes contradictory, best practices for SQL Server on the internet? Have you considered creating your own but didn't know where to begin? Then this is the session for you.
    Everybody is talking about best practices, and like standards, most everybody has them. But why do they look like they do, and why would you use a specific set of "best practices" that someone has put together? This session goes through my set of best practices that I've accumulated over 20 years of DBA work, disassembles each and every one of them to see how they came about and discuss why I still use them - or don't. 
    There are no such things as the "ultimate" best practices, but I aim to provide the attendee with as much food for thought as possible in order to let each and everyone decide on their own path forward. The session covers primarily SQL Server 2012 to 2016, with SQL Server 2017 thrown in for good measure.

    Cloud Management and Spend Optimisation with PyraCloud
    11:30 - 12:00

    n SoftwareONE’s recent C-level and IT Manager survey, “Managing and Understanding On-Premises and Cloud Spend,” we found that nearly half (43 percent) of the respondents felt that high costs were the number one concern when using the cloud. Our same survey found that unpredictable & unbudgeted costs for cloud were the biggest pain point for 37 percent of respondents, followed by lack of transparency and visibility for 30 percent.
    During this 30 minute session we will provide a live demonstration of SoftwareONE’s PyraCloud platform taking a close look at:
    • The cause of spiralling cloud costs
    • Best practice for governing cloud resources
    • Optimising across multiple cloud providers
    • Tracking spend and internal cross-charging across business units
    • How to build the right foundation for your business
    • Creating a culture and workforce ready to embrace cloud
    • Decision frameworks for migrations & governance structure
    • Controlling and monitoring cloud use and spend
