Data vault is a compelling architecture for an enterprise data warehouse using SQL Server 2012. A well designed data vault data warehouse facilitates fast, efficient and maintainable data integration across business systems. In this session Leslie and I will review the basics about enterprise data warehouse design, introduce you to the data vault architecture and discuss how you can leverage new features of SQL Server 2012 help make your data warehouse solution provide maximum value to your users.

SSIS Internals and Performance

Speaker: David Peter Hansen

Registration URL: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2255494534688611842

You have worked with SQL Server Integration Service (SSIS) for a few years, but more often than not, you see performance problems with your packages. Some packages are running slow, while others are taking up more memory and CPU than before. In this session, you will learn the internals of SSIS and why having a deep understanding is important to solve performance problems. You will also learn how the control flow engine and data flow engine work, what the impact on performance buffers have, and how execution trees are related to parallelism.

BI in the sky (with diamonds)

Speaker: Johan Ludvig

Registration URL: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/620040259754165249

Microsoft is really delivering up on it's "Cloud first" mantra with rapid releases of new functionality to it's PowerBI portifolio, functionality that won't arrive on-premise until next Office release - if ever. So you, or your manager has decided to give PowerBI a go. But the budget for this is a bit tight, and maybe you're not allowed to use the existing server. Azure is ready for you. But what Azure service do you choose, and how do you let PowerBI and Azure play nicely together? That's what this webinar is here to tell you.
