Learn how to extend your current DBA skills into Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, and more

If you’re a DBA, at some point in your career you’ll have to support two or more types of database platforms. Whether they come to you via new applications, a company acquisition, or somehow just pop up (darn those app developers!), supporting databases beyond your comfort zone can be challenging. 
During this lively conversation, Stephen Wynkoop and Scott Walz will present real world examples as they discuss the five things every DBA needs to know when managing multiple database platforms:

  1. Schema and data migration and reporting
  2. Security management
  3. Object management and change management
  4. Detecting and diagnosing storage problems
  5. Diagnosing and repairing performance problems

Attend this webinar and you’ll learn:

  • Proactive techniques you can use to improve database performance
  • How setting up a proactive storage monitoring plan can improve availability while decreasing your hardware costs
  • How to use the latest tools to increase you own productivity while expanding your skills into unfamiliar databases
