If you are in the DFW area, come down to the North Texas SQL Server User Group tonight at the Microsoft Building in Irving. The meeting starts at 6pm CST. I’ll be giving an updated version of the following presentation.
Agile Data Warehouse Design with Biml
Business Intelligence Markup Language 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.
Is AlwaysOn the Right High Availability and Disaster Recovery Plan for me?
You need a high availability and disaster recovery solution for your mission critical databases. SQL Server AlwaysOn can help, but with Windows Clustering, Failover Cluster Instances, and Availability Groups, the choices get confusing and complicated quickly. This session will clear up all the confusion by explaining the various components and exposing all the gotchas. You will learn how to choose the right level of protection for your environment. You will walk away with the knowledge and confidence to pick the right solution to give your critical databases a solid high availability and disaster recovery plan.
Oh, and I should mention that Ryan is running for the PASS Board of Directors and I can’t wait to vote for him.
Anyway, additional details about the meeting can be found here. Hope to see some of you there!
