As Track Program Manager for the Database and Business Intelligence Track at TechED North America,
I wanted to express my sincere THANK YOU to all attendees, speakers, staffers, and everyone involved in the logistics of TechED North America.

We had a very strong attendance at each of the sessions which is truly appreciated.!

Now what are the sessions you should definetely have a look at online, if you were not attending, or you simply want to get access to session recordings or presentations.

While all sessions are recorded and can be review at:, below is the preference list for the DBI track , based on audience feedback and session highscores.

If you are traveling to TechED Europe, you can most likely attend some of these sessions in person.
