Welcome to the dbi services Blog! This blog focuses on IT infrastructure - featuring news, troubleshooting, and tips & tricks. It covers database, middleware, and OS technologies such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Documentum, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase, Unix/Linux, etc. The dbi services blog represents the view of our consultants, not necessarily that of dbi services.

A couple of days ago (20 November 2012), Microsoft rolled out the first cumulative update (CU1) for SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1). It's just two weeks after the release of the first Service Pack (SP1) we are talking about here.
For this last day () of the TechEd 2012, I going to present the new certification cycle for dba who wants to be certified for SQL Server 2012. But before, let's start with a brief introduction on Enterprise Information Management, also called EIM
With the appearance of WebLogic Server as Oracle application server and the emergence of the Oracle Fusion Middleware suite, some may wonder what will be the support of their Oracle Internet Application server license, e. g. Oracle Forms and Reports services, Business Intelligence Edition, etc. As a consultant, I am often dealing with these kinds of problems and aiming to improve license benefits. In this post, I want to focus on Oracle Internet Application server licenses.
I have decided to take some time in this cold month of February to continue this small series. This time, I'm going to speak about Reporting Services (SSRS) and some new features. Like my other article "SQL Server 2012: New features on Integration Services (SSIS)", this article presents a summary of new features and enhancements for SQL 2012 Reporting Services.
Since the third CTP version of SQL Server 2012 (codename Denali), there are some new features available to provide an additional value like the for other Microsoft SQL Server versions. These are pooled in the so called 'Feature Pack' as well as in the 'Manageability Tool Kit'. Both are already available, but not in the final version. I have compiled all information in this blog to find it easily. All DBAs should know that Feature Pack exists, how to find it, and of course use it.
For a few months, I have been testing the new SQL Server 2012 (codename Denali) and I was very surprised from the DMVs of this version. Dynamic management views (DMVs) return server state information that can be used to monitor the health of a server instance, diagnose problems and tune performance. I will focus on some DMVs which are very interesting for a DBA.
