How do you keep records of your SQL Server environments?  Patching levels, security accounts, configuration options, maintenance jobs and the like are some of the pieces we have to keep organized.  Are you using something besides Excel to keep up with this?  Sure, we can use the Content Management Server (CMS) to query across several instances, but we still need to organize this information somewhere.  Our guests for this episode, Sean and Jen McCown, discuss inventory challenges with us and why this information is important.  We might also get into some new features of their software, MinionWare.  If you have a suggestion we didn’t discuss, please let us know!

IT workers will generally claim they like learning new technology—it is almost a required attribute.  Why then is bringing in new technology so hard?  In this episode, we explore how new technologies make their way into organizations and how we might either embrace them or how this becomes a major challenge.  There are so many new technologies now, it is very difficult to keep up with.  I would love to hear from you on this.  Please share with us your success stories on bringing in new technology and how it benefited you or your organization.

While we continue to review the new features of the CTP preview of SQL Server 2022, we turn our attention to the recent Microsoft Build conference and talk about some of the announcements made.  We try to separate the interesting technology from the marketing fluff and what pieces might trickle into the data platform space.  Defining your requirements has never been more important as the number of offerings continue to increase.  We were super excited to hear about Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform; however, a little digging into the technology makes us realize we aren’t quite ready to pay for that service tier.
