I’ve created a presentation called “Data as Strategy”, and in it I cover multiple solutions for various issues that organizations face in dealing with the “new world” of data management. No longer are we just DBA’s or Developers, now we’re part of the broader business strategy of using data in strategic decisions.
That presentation covers a lot of ground, really quickly, so I thought I would post some of the links I mention during the talk here. I’ll actually come back and update this page as time goes on, so be sure to bookmark it. I’ll have a mix here of Microsoft sources, outside opinions, whitepapers, tutorials and videos wherever I can.

Hi Buck. Will you be posting the actual presentation, or just the links? Thanks. Steve W.
Just the links. The presentation wouldn't do a lot of good - I'm graphics-heavy and text lite, since I don't do the typical Microsoft "eye chart" style. I try to tailor the discussion to what people in the audience want to hear.
