anu Hi, SQL Server community. My name is Anu Chawla and I am Director of ISV Enablement at Microsoft. I’m excited to announce my team’s contribution to the ongoing SQL Server conversation: two new MSDN blogs written to help SQL Server DBAs look like superheroes. Specifically, we write about best practices, tips, and tricks to help users of specific applications supercharge their performance by running on SQL Server.

Where can you see this goodness for yourself? Right here:

If you use Workforce Central (workforce management software) or T24 (banking software), we want to be your go-to source for information on how to make these products sing with SQL Server. You have questions, we have answers.

But even if you don’t use either of these applications, you’ll find a lot of practical knowledge you can use to squeeze the best performance from any application running on SQL Server. Here are just a few examples:

 

…and much more, with fresh heroics added daily. It’s like free training with no certification exam at the end.

Please fly over and check it out. If you have ideas for what kind of topics would be useful to you, speak up in our comments section while you’re there—we love to hear from real DBAs.
