It’s that time of year again when we begin preparing for the Database Roadshow. This year’s Roadshow is all about change. Attend this NCompass session if you’d like an overview of some of the changes we’ll be talking about during the Roadshow. We’ll also toss out a few database tips and tricks along the way. If you are trying to decide if you want to attend this year’s Roadshow (or if you know you’ll be unable to attend a Roadshow) this session is for you.
