During the research for this project I have had a chance to deploy many of these new features. These posts will highlight the best of what SQL Server 2012 has to offer.

N-tier development is not a new methodology. I remember learning about it in 200-level courses back in 2000, and I used it in ASP.NET development before I jumped on the SharePoint bandwagon.

The goal of our project with the Kennedy Center was to digitally archive the entire collection of National Symphony Orchestra recordings. That’s over 100 years of precious, irreplaceable audio files— each of which were up to 2GB in size — that needed to be electronically preserved in a secure and searchable archive. Not to mention the Orchestra needed an efficient process and system for their future archiving, so it was important to get it done right the first time. An out-of-the-box […]
About half of what we do here at AIS is for government clients. And as much as we’d like to brag about the innovative work we do for them, we usually can’t, for obvious national-security-related reasons.
