Topic:  Implementation of Database Audit Specifications in SQL Server 2012.
In this 90-minute session demonstrate the implementation of Database Audit Specifications in SQL Server 2012, and how we can use it to identify dormant databases and answer other pesky usage questions.  Also cover integrating fixed-format FILETABLEs with your existing relational data to provide a practical solution for common unstructured data problems.  Finally, show you a utility script which identifies all the ways in which a given login is able to access a SQL Server, and exactly what the login can do when connected.  This session includes hands-on examples and code, so take a solution or two home with you!
