My name is Derek Evans, I am a Microsoft SQL Server Database Engineering Consultant with TD Bank in West Palm Beach, FL. I have worked as a SQL Server Database Administrator for over 10 years. I specialize in SQL Server Integration Services, SQL Data Warehouses both OLTP and OLAP.
I started out in the Microsoft World after getting out of college Rochester Institute of Technology. I got a job as Tech Support at Keyspan Energy (Brooklyn Union and Gas) supporting their customer support system. We went from Microsoft Access to SQL 6.5 and it was a scary yet great way to learn SQL Server. Through those years I have learned where the need and justification is to bring in a Microsoft SQL Server or Office product or feature and how to show the business how the product will benefit them. Through those experiences I hope to provide some examples that may be able help other people.
The way technology is ever changing. anyone who says they know it all has a lot to learn. You have to play with the new features and keep an eye out for whats coming to stay in the game.
