About the Webinar

OnDemandJust  the mere mention of normalization can send shivers down the spine of the most experienced data modeler.  And your team members likely hate it more than you do.

But normalization does not have to be the bad word it is on most projects. It’s likely that your team mates don’t fully understand its benefits and that you don’t fully understand why they fear it so much.

In this month’s webinar, Karen demonstrates the good, the bad, and the ugly of basic normalization.

About the Speakers

Kerry-TylerKerry Tyler started his SQL Server career when he debuted as an accidental DBA in 2005. It wasn’t all bad, as he had been hoping for such an opportunity. Seeing Reporting Services 2005 demoed for the first time sealed the deal, and it has been all data ever since, leaving the worlds of networking and systems admin behind. After being a full-time dev/operational DBA with everything since SQL 2000, Kerry is now back to BI, as a Senior BI Engineer/Consultant in Nashville, Tennessee.
