Our next meeting is next Wednesday June 10, 2015, at the Louisiana Technology Park featuring some great Enterprise DBA material!

Topic: Small Question/Big Answers

Detail:  The longest days in a DBA’s life start with small questions. Who has sysadmin in all of our databases? How big will our databases be next year? Which servers will be affected if we change the AD account password? If you’re a DBA in this shop and you have hundreds of databases, then your entire week just got really long. What you need is a way to organize your environment in such a way that you can get the answers easily and turn these into trivial questions. We’re going to show you how our new product Minion Enterprise lets you manage your environment in a way so that you get all of your time back. While Minion Enterprise can work wonders in your environment, we’re also going to discuss other ways to bring your shop under control.
 
Bio: Sean McCown is a Certified Master in SQL Server 2008 and a SQL Server MVP with 20 years of experience in databases. He is also founder and co-owner of the MidnightDBA.com website, where he records free SQL Server training videos and co-hosts the popular web show DBAs@Midnight.

Have to read the entire article. I have worked in robotic automated projects. They are more efficient and reduce human error on predictable repetitive tasks.
