I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
Thursday, November 29, 2012, brings us the November
meeting of the NY SQL
Server User Group, with BI expert, SQL MVP and Author William E. Pearson
III, aka, Bill Pearson. Bill has quite
an impressive collection of writings on the topic of BI, Data Warehousing,
Analysis Services, MDX, DAX, etc., especially over at Dtabase
He often presents a cacophony of awesome BI presentations
by donating his valuable time to the SQLSaturday circuit, in cities across the
country. Now with SQL Server 2012, there
is much to know about its new built-in business intelligence features. If you are lucky enough to be in the NY area,
come catch my friend and gentleman Bill Pearson tomorrow at Microsoft HQ in NY.
Here’s a look at tomorrow’s agenda:
INTRO to SQL SERVER 2012 BI
Why can’t the world just stay the same? Why can’t I just stick to SQL?
Why in the World do I want to Use Tabular Models or Multidimensional Cubes and
how do I choose between them?
You’ve spent your
career becoming proficient at relational database
design and SQL, but with every version of SQL Server, you keep on hearing about
how BI is over taking the database world. You finally decide to take a crack at
it in the latest version of SQL Server, and it seems more complicated than
ever. Now not only are you seemingly faced with jumping from SQL into something
else, you also are faced with major choices between what that newfangled BI
model should be made of!
Never fear, MVP Will Pearson is here to ease your way into becoming a BI
expert. A week from tomorrow, after you’ve gotten over all the turkey you’ve
eaten over the holiday, and recuperated from getting knocked over during Black
Friday, Will Pearson will provide an overview of what problems SSAS is designed
to solve and how to navigate your way through the choices of models that SSAS
As usual we will meet at the Microsoft Offices at 1290 6th Avenue. Please click
