This session is for anyone who wants to reduce their costs while working with SQL Server.
SQL Server is expensive. Licensing, hosting, personnel – it all costs money.
Technical people often focus on the Technology, overlooking the fact that they are viewed as a huge Cost Center by the Business.
In this session, I’ll be discussing ways in which you can reduce costs and improve Business value through
- SQL Server Consolidation
- Getting the Licensing right
- Architectural designs and their cost implications
- On-premises and Cloud considerations
So often, the drive for efficiency comes from outside IT. This Session will help to put you in the right place whether initiating change from within or responding to requests from outside.
In a world where efficiency and cost-saving is king, it’s important to identify how you can improve the value to the Business and more importantly, show how you do it.
Why I Want to Present This Session:
So often, Technologists have to quickly respond to interrogations about why they cost money.
I’ve been there, I’ve experienced the “rabbit in the headlights” effect and responded poorly. I’ve learned and adapted my stance to be more pro-active in demonstrating just how we can provide better Business value and I’d love to share this with others.
