A deep dive into batch mode scalability with column store index and SQL 2014.
Continuous delivery is an approach that enables new functionality to be delivered as needed. This session will cover how this approach can be applied to data warehouses to enable faster time to value for the consumers of the data.
Learn ready-to-use DAX patterns improving development speed of Power Pivot solutions. Good also for SSAS Tabular developers.
This session targets SSAS developers that are already dealing with complex security solutions on a regular basis and want to get more insights on what actually happens inside SSAS when the different kinds of security are applied to their model.
This session shows how you can use SQL Server 2014’s features to meet your solution’s non-functional requirements and ensure operational success.
This 500 level session will focus on using undocumented statements and trace flags to get insight into how the query optimizer works and show you which operations it performs during query optimization.
In this session we'll look at the things you should and shouldn't be doing now, to protect yourself and your data against the risk of corruption and thing you should and shouldn't do should the database ever become corrupt.
Join me for an hour of playing with different ETL patterns by using Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using different Hardware might lead you to different conclusions,and the size of the workload is always the paramount of your performance.Loading data first and then creating a Clustered Columnstore or creating Clustered Columnstore and than loading - join me to find the answers!
Microsoft is moving to the cloud and SQL Server 2014 is the first release with features designed specifically to extend your datacentre into the cloud.
