Everyone's been bitten by it - rogue changes made on servers, be it SPs, index rebuilds, or even configuration changes. What if you knew? What if you could look historically across servers and track down what changes were made when, by who, and from where? It exists, it's already built into MSSQL, it's easy to implement and it's been there waiting for you for 7 years.

Bio: Michael Bourgon is the Senior Production DBA for Emdeon Pharmacy Services. He started work with Sybase on RS/6000 over 15 years ago, and has been meddling with some form of that SQL Server codebase ever since. He's done everything from training Sales Reps to building cubes to actually building a run-book from scratch that carries his name. He's always looking for a better way to be a Lazy DBA - spending far too many hours automating processes in order to accomplish that. In his spare time he listens to weird music, reads Science Fiction, and tries to ensure his daughter grows up a nerd, too.
