In coordination with the SQL Server Product Group and the Data Platform Group I am pleased to announce that we will be providing access to the Data Platform Advisors Yammer group to all SQL Server MCMs and MCAs.

Ok, what does that mean to me?

The Data Platform Advisors is a Yammer Group that connects you directly to the Product Group, gives you first visibility into TAPs and Betas and allows unprecedented access to the PMs and Devs in SQL Server.

boB you've got me excited! What should I do next?

  1. Ensure that you have an NDA in place with the Masters program (NOTE: MVP NDAs will not be acceptable due to renewals etc.)
  2. If you do not already have a Yammer account sign up on Yammer.com (you can mingle your work Yammer with the DPA) - be sure to check out all the devices that Yammer is supported on!
  3. Let me know that you are interested in joining - I will help verify your NDA etc.
  4. The DPA team will you to the overall network
  5. I will add you to the Data Platform Advisors specific network

Please let everyone know about this phenomenal benefit of being a member of the Masters / Architect community!
