Azure ML, SSIS and the Modern Data Warehouse

Posted Apr 17, 2015 by Ginger Grant

Recently I was afforded the opportunity to speak at several different events, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was able to speak on Azure Machine Learning first at the Arizona SQL Server Users Group meeting. I really appreciate all who attended as we had quite a crowd. Since the meeting is held practically on Arizona State University’s Tempe Campus, it was great to see a number of students attending, most likely due to Ram’s continued marketing efforts on meetup.com. After talking to him about it, I was impressed at his success at improving attendance by promoting the event on Meetup, and wonder if many SQL Server User Groups have experienced the same benefits. If you have, please let me know. Thanks Joe for taking a picture of the event too.

What is a Modern Data Warehouse?

Posted Apr 06, 2015 by Ginger Grant

As I was honored enough to be selected to give a PreCon on the Internals of the Modern Data Warehouse at SQLSaturday Huntington Beach, I thought that I would take the time to explain why I felt drawn to the topic. There are a lot of places that haven’t given much thought to the changes in technology which have happened over the last few years. The major feature upgrades to SQL Server in 2012 and 2014 have meant that they can use column store indexes which makes things faster and maybe better High Availability. While those things are certainly valuable improvements there is a lot more that you can do to derive value from your data and companies want more than just a well-organized, running data warehouse.

Learn About Data Factory at SQLSaturday Phoenix

I have been speaking a lot over the past year. Much more than I have spoken in years past. I’ve moving from town to town like a ninja, speaking at SQLSaturdays. SQLSaturdays are free training events that are held internationally, where speakers like myself and others, come to town and speak on a multitude of subjects relating to SQL Server. On February 28th, 2015, I will be speaking at SQLSaturday #370 in Phoenix, AZ.

Why You Should Attend SQLSaturday Phoenix

Posted Feb 05, 2015 by Ginger Grant

It can be very difficult to keep up with the increasing number of changes in technology. There are so many things changing with the move to the cloud, data storage and access, self-service visualization tools and not to mention the many enhancements Microsoft has made in the latest versions of SQL Server. One place where it is possible to drink from the fire hose, so to speak, is at SQLSaturday events. Being able to find things out from the people who literally wrote the book on SQL Server, well technically wrote a bunch of books, is a great opportunity to catch up on a lot of new technology.
