My enthusiasm for Biml must be catching because I’ve been asked to give two presentations next week.
I’ll be giving a brand new presentation on Tuesday, November 12th, at 4:30pm for the MSBIC group at the Microsoft Building in Irving, TX. This presentation is targeted towards Business Analysts, management, and other members of the data warehouse team. If your boss has been on the fence about adopting Biml, try to get him/her to see this presentation. Anyway, details can be found on the MSBIC site and the abstract is as follows:
The Business Case For Biml
Business Intelligence Markup Language is literally changing the way we think about Data Warehouse Design and ETL Development, but what impact will this have on the rest of the business? In this presentation we’ll discuss how Biml adoption may affect things like the Data Warehouse Development Lifecycle, Team Dynamics and Roles, Quality Assurance Testing, and Business Process Interviews. We will also discuss how to maximize your return on investment (ROI) by utilizing BimlScript in your data warehouse projects.
Next Thursday, November 14th, at 6pm CT I’ll be giving a remote presentation to the Tulsa SQL Server User Group. I’m going to present a re-factored and more detailed version of the Biml presentation I gave at SQL Saturday #255 last week. I’m hoping that it will be available for live streaming and I’ll follow up with more details once everything is straightened out. I’m thrilled to be giving this presentation again because I will have more time and can show more of the code. Once again, the abstract follows.
BIML – The Next Step in Agile Data Warehousing
Business Intelligence Markup Language (BIML) is literally changing the way we think about Data Warehouse design and ETL. In this interactive demo-focused presentation you’ll see how you can rapidly iterate through the Data Warehouse Development Cycle and provide ROI almost immediately. Learn how you can use BIML Script to automatically create staging tables, SSIS Packages, and other necessary objects during the modeling process.
But wait, there’s more….
I mentioned my intention to present a full day Biml Workshop in a previous article, and a local firm has approached me and would like to sponsor it. I know a lot of my NTSSUG SQL Family are really eager for some Biml training and I promise to post any developments and updates right here on the blog.
Hope to “see” some of you at the presentations.
