    Main Topic
    Making the Leap from Profiler to Extended Events
    Main Topic Speaker: Erin Stellato

    Main Topic Summary: If you’re like me, you’ve been using SQL Trace and Profiler since you started using SQL Server. They’re like old friends, tried and true. You know how they work, you know what you can capture, you know how to find the data you need. But now you’ve been told that your good friends have been deprecated in SQL Server 2012, and you need to become best friends with Extended Events. What is THAT all about? It’s ok. Really. In this session we’ll look at Profiler and Extended Events side by side to see how easy it is to transition to Extended Events. We’ll step through real world examples using Extended Events to do what you’re used to doing with Trace, and even more. You can find the time learn Extended Events…today.

    Main Topic: Forensic Analytics with PowerPivot for Excel

    Main Topic Speaker: William E Pearson III

    Main Topic Summary: Despite the wealth of analytical technologies available today, 65% of occupational fraud at public companies is detected through tips, management review, or simple accidents. Forensic analytics can change this disappointing scenario by employing a combination of human intuition and leading-edge technologies, and can provide superior detection methods to significantly improve the detection and investigation of illegal or unethical activities.

    In this session, we explore forensic analytics: a set of techniques we can use to uncover irregularities in financial data. We also gain an understanding of goals of forensic analytics: to enable us to find out how — and why — these irregularities exist, and to find out their source(s) — especially when fraudulent activity is suspected. We discuss guiding principles that are key to effectively and confidently ferreting out data anomalies, and outline a methodology to meet key principles by applying a standard, repeatable process to forensic analytics. Throughout the session, we view examples of how we can employ PowerPivot for Excel to drive forensic analytics via various tests and reviews.
