Pending Sessions

In this session the Solution Architects and DBAs, responsible for the implemented architecture can learn which Columnstore Index to choose, because every index architecture can be so different, and in fact they do support different features.
Learn in just 60 Minutes what are the wait types for the Columnstore Indexes & Batch Execution Mode. What can you do about them and how can you optimise them, if they are frequent time-spenders on your systems.
Learn in 75 Minutes what Batch Execution Mode is, when & how it will affect your workloads (in upcoming SQL Server 2019 & Azure SQLDB) on the traditional Rowstore Indexes.

In the ideal world, all information and structures are static, but in the real world almost everything is dynamic, and changes are constant. This session reviews different methods for generating MSBI content (SSIS, SSRS) dynamically.
Join me for an hour of playing with different ETL patterns by using Clustered Columnstore Indexes. Using different Hardware might lead you to different conclusions,and the size of the workload is always the paramount of your performance.Loading data first and then creating a Clustered Columnstore or creating Clustered Columnstore and than loading - join me to find the answers!
Dive deep into Columnstore Indexes and discover their advantages and some of the limitations. Look into some of the Columnstore Indexes myths, understand more complex concepts of Batch Mode & Query Processing with another depth.
If you work with an amazing visualisation plugin NodeXL you might have asked yourself the question - how do I get my custom data for getting those great visualisation for analysis. This session will show you a couple of ways of how to get it done.
Learn in just a bit over an hour how to use CISL (open source Columnstore Indexes Library) for getting deep insights on the Columnstore Indexes and how to use its maintenance solution for keeping Columnstore Indexes performing at their maximum speed.
Have you ever considered a situation where Columnstore Index can be quite the opposite of what one expect from it? A slow, wasteful source of painfully slow queries, lagging the performance, consuming irresponsible amount of resources ...
With increasing speed in relational query execution classical analytical solutions get challenged more and more. Why loose time for processing data into multi-dimensional databases? Why analyze outdated data if you can have fresh data instead?
