Presentation topic and abstract for this meeting:

DevOps and NoSQL: The Two Trends Impacting Database Professionals

In this one hour session, Mathew Phan from Quest Software will discuss two technology trends greatly disrupting database professionals: DevOps and non-relational databases. First, he will go over what DevOps is, the value it adds, and what you need to know in order to adapt if your organization moves in that direction. Then he will discuss the rise of non-relational databases, why they're being used to store huge amounts of data, the best scenarios to apply them, and how you can merge your knowledge of traditional relational databases like SQL Server in this new technology. During the course of the presentation, he will briefly touch on a couple of products from Quest Software that can greatly assist in getting users up to speed in both of these trends.
