Introduction to the SQL Server Database Experimentation Assistant


Date: Monday, November 23, 2020
Time: 11am ET
Length: 1 hour, 30 minutes


Digital marketers and other technologists have long enjoyed the benefit of tools that conduct “A/B Tests,” which automate ways to test the efficacy of two or more alternative ways to write tweets and content. For years, the only way that we could do our own A/B tests on SQL Server or Azure SQL was though an arduous and manual process of benchmarking. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easier way?

There is! It’s time to learn about the SQL Server Database Experimentation Assistant (DEA)! In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Capture your workload database on-premise or in the cloud
  • Replay your workload on-demand as needed
  • Analyze and compare results, giving you full confidence in the best outcome for Azure migrations and implementing new on-prem hardware


If you want to save money, validate performance, and make sure you do not have errors while migrating to the cloud, then you need to learn about the DEA today. Once you’ve added the DEA to your toolkit, you'll look like the rockstar while the business saves money and makes the customers happy.
