How To Stop Bad Data in its OLTP Tracks

Speaker: Denise McInerney of Intuit

Incorrect, inaccurate and misleading data can get into a database in a variety of ways. It causes bugs, impacts customers and hurts business.

Learn how DBAs and developers can proactively ensure the data coming into a transactional system is clean and correct. Denise will cover table design, the pitfalls of NULL, “garbage in”, transactions, change management, and coding standards.

You'll learn:

  • About managing busy e-commerce databases supporting multi-million dollar businesses.
  • Real-life examples and demos that show how OLTP data quality can be compromised.
  • How taking an integrated approach can make you more successful at your job.

Denise McInerney focuses on designing and performance tuning of OLTP databases that support web-based applications. She is a Staff DBA at Intuit in Mountain View, CA. Her primary job is to design, tune and manage databases that support one of the company’s eCommerce web sites.

Denise is certified MCDBA and MCTS and serves on the PASS Board of Directors.
