Welcome Global Alliance Partner SQL Sentry

PASS is excited to welcome SQL Sentry as a Gold Level Global Alliance Partner, expanding the company’s strong individual event and program sponsorships into a comprehensive, strategic relationship that supports the worldwide PASS community year-round.

SQL Sentry has been supporting database professionals through its tools since 2004, when the company released its first product and joined the SQL Server community. Over the years, SQL Sentry has worked to give back and strengthen the community, not just through event sponsorships but also through services such as the shuttles at PASS Summit 2013 in Charlotte and the high quality educational efforts its respected experts Aaron Bertrand and Kevin Kline share through events, blogs, and other venues.

"Teaming up with PASS for the Global Alliance Partner Program was the logical next step for SQL Sentry,” said Nick Harshbarger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SQL Sentry. “Since our roots come from many years of running a very large, complex SQL Server enterprise, we have appreciated the benefit of the unique community shepherded by PASS. The education we’ve received and the connections we’ve created through PASS have been critical to the growing success of our business. We are proud of our 10-year support of PASS and look forward to stepping up and helping the PASS community reach new heights of success.”

As a Gold Level Global Alliance Partner, SQL Sentry will be a Gold sponsor of PASS Summit, a Silver sponsor of the PASS Business Analytics Conference, and will be supporting 24 Hours of PASS virtual events, PASS SQLSaturday events, and the entire PASS community through Connector sponsorships, web advertising, and more.

PASS sponsors are a vital part of the community, supporting the organization’s many training and networking opportunities, including free learning events. Through the Global Alliance Program, PASS looks forward to bringing many new opportunities and added value to our community and to our partners.
