SQL Server 2014 Launch Event

Presentation Abstract

With the release of SQL Server 2014 on April 1st and a Global Launch on April 15th (Accelerate your insights), we are celebrating locally by presenting educational sessions on new and enhanced features of SQL Server 2014 and the Microsoft Data Platform.

Who should attend? - Anyone who is interested in finding out what’s new in SQL Server 2014

Who will be presenting? – Richard Baumet, Todd McDermid, Scott Stauffer and John Huang

What we will cover?

  1. SQL Server In-Memory OLTP (Codename: Hekaton) presented by John Huang
    Drastically increase the speed of your On Line Transactional Procession workloads with this new feature of SQL Server 2014. Hekaton, Greek for 100, puts out the goal of the development team to see 100 times performance improvements over traditional SQL Server OLTP.  John Wong, SQL MCM & MVP will help bring us up to speed with how Hekaton works and how we make use of it.
  2. AlwaysOn (High Availability / Disaster Recovery) presented by Rich Baumet
    AlwaysOn technology was added to SQL Server in 2012, but SQL 2014 continues to improve on a solid foundation. Now we are able to distribute data to more secondaries, and create Azure Replicas to further reduce our risk of data loss in the event of a disaster, and provide a higher service levels to the business.
  3. PowerBI presented by Todd McDermid with some stories by a few guests
    Power BI which is comprised of: Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View, Power Map & Power Q&A. We can finally make headway on the original promised of BI – to be pervasive throughout the organization.  By placing BI features in Excel via an add-in, all users can now mashup, model, visualize, consume and curate information of and for the organization.  Power Map and Power Q&A will be presented at a future event.
  4. Big Data (HD Insight Microsoft’s Hadoop Distribution on Microsoft Azure) presented by Scott Stauffer
    It seems Big Data is the big buzz word for the last few years, and likely will be for years to come.  We will explore the Hadoop ecosystem and other NoSQL solutions, as well as dip our toes into the water with HD Insight on Azure, Microsoft’s Enterprise cloud offering.  Do you think your business might have a case for a Big Data project?
