Title: Policy-based what ?!?
Abstract: Beginning with SQL Server 2008, Policy-based Management was added to the DBAs toolkit to ease administration, but it only goes so far. This session will cover the principles of Policy-based Management, and we'll take a look at how we can make it *work* for us, as opposed to just telling us something is not right. We'll cover PBM and it's insides, Alerts, Operators, Scheduled Jobs, and who knows, perhaps even some Extended Events !
Bio: Richard has been a DBA for longer than he cares to admit. Currently based in Swindon, he's worked on all sorts - large and small, and cares passionately about each and every one of them. He also likes email, and thinks that Project Managers are funny.
