Tech Breakfast
SSW Tech Breakfast Planning and Managing Your Smooth Migration from Access to SQL Server.
When Access mdb's hit their limit of scalability, corrupting too often and unable to handle the number of concurrent users required, it's time to upsize to SQL Server. But upsizing your application involves a lot more than running the Upsizing Wizard... This session will demonstrate what changes to make to your application before running the Upsizing Wizard and what to do after. You will be walked through development tools, application interface changes, query design and stored procedures to bring scalability for more users.

The Cutting Edge

G'day Developers!
Software development can be painful and costly. Hang on, that should say "Software development IS painful and costly." Well, not always, but it has been observed that in 1999 "75% of all development projects missed their target release date or never shipped at all." Projects often fail because clients think suppliers under-deliver and over-charge. The client and the supplier have different expectations about the goals of the project. This difference of opinion often leads to a projects absolute failure... More on managing expectations
Cheers until next time, Adam

There are a range of Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) that if used appropriately can be invaluable benchmarks for your business.
