We present a two part session looking at Microsoft's Big Data offerings and strategy.
In the first part we show off Microsoft's enhancements to the Hadoop open source stack with HDInsight.  We demonstrate how this works and how this achieves phenomenal cost savings using Azure Blob Storage.  With a low very low barrier to entry, we show just how easy it is to get started.   We also show how HDInsight can be integrated into familiar Microsoft products and tools to form consistent end to end solutions.
In the second part we explore an interesting specific Big Data use case scenario that we believe will become popular.
Products: SQL, SQL Server Reporting Services, SQL Server Integration Services, Microsoft Azure
