This talk will explain the patterns that we recommend to customers when designing data warehouses. This talk will help people learning about DW for the first time and also give insight for those who wish to learn more.
More data, less time, storing everything. These ingredients mean it is becoming imperative we do not move the kitchen sink everytime we do our ETL Come to this session to find out how.
The SQL Server provides much functionality that increases the scalability and flexibility of your solution by distributing data and jobs among low-priced commodity servers.
A new and fresh approach to datwarehousing that is agile, performant and easy to do. Data Vault is a new methodology that tries to overcome traditional problems that plagued traditional datawarehousing in the past.
Henk van der Valk from the Unisys performance lab will be my special guest for this session. He has a test system that we all would like to have at home. The ES7000 has 96 Cores and half a Terabyte of RAM yes RAM (!). We will look at various ways to push SQL Server workloads by methodically detecting and resolving bottlenecks.Together we will show you how you can apply this approach on mid-sized and even smaller systems. (We’ll even try some of them on a laptop, and of course we will remote connect into the big machine ) In this session you will: Learn how to measure what the next bottle-neck is,using perfmon and waitstats. Hear about optimization tips that will get the most out of your hardware to speed up your processsing.
A look at some of the things that make using SSIS in SQL Server 2008 a very good choice for your ETL requirements
Come to this session to see how you can create a logging, monitoring and profiling solution for your existing or new SSIS packages overcoming all usual problems that a typical solution brings: increasing package complexity, longer development times and so on. The session will propose a standard, out-of-the-box solution for all of these challenges.
