Database Migrations could range from a very easy migration project to lengthy cross platform migrations. Many times, DBAs and Database Developers don’t know where to start, or how to even move an entire application from Oracle, DB2, Sybase, MySQL or even Access over to SQL Server or Azure. In this session you’ll learn that a migration process is much more than a technical translation of code, it involves technical analysis, architecture and design, and all aspects of software development processes. We’ll discuss and showcase how you can perform database migrations with tools like SQL Server Migration Assistant, and go over best practices based on real-world scenarios

    Amazing talk! I've seen almost all other 'The Case of the Unexplained' videos, and I have to say that this was by far the best. Mark has had an *enormous* influence on my professional development as a sysadmin/programmer and it is very nice to see that he still enjoys teasing his fans by refusing to provide an MSI installer for the Sysinternals Suite. Mark is clearly hinting to all the real IT professionals out there that it's OK to like EULAs (especially at runtime).

    The weirdest error message i got was something like: "As a result, the application may become unresponsive." I have no idea as a result of what, or what application it was talking about.

    Three and a half years later, and the description is still about database migrations.

    Great video though, I refer back to it from time to time for pointers :)
