SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (8.00-9.00pm)
Simpson - Parallel Data
Warehouse Technical Solution Professional- Microsoft
session will introduce and explore the background behind Microsoft’s scale out
data warehousing platform - Parallel Data Warehouse - and discuss some of the
reasons for considering it rather than traditional on-premise environments.
Time to get creative, situations the BI textbooks
don't tell you about (7.15-8.00pm)
Ford – Business Intelligence Consultant - Hitachi
will talk us through a recent project where the vendor supplied tools just
weren’t capable enough for the job despite how reasonably simple the
requirement seemed. Instead, the project
team had to get creative and implement their own custom solution which this
session will explore.
SQL Server and the Common Language Runtime - A
newcomer's first session (6.30-6.50pm)
In his first ever session, Nick
will talk about using the CLR within SQL Server, why and when it should be
used and then how.
Please send any questions or queries to myself,
