BigData, what is it and what is Microsoft (SQL) doing about it? - Ryan Simpson
In this session we’ll cover off a hadoop in a ‘101’, and explain why SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse will allow you to tackle your big data problem, however you define it, on your terms.
Incremental Data Loading with Change Data Capture and SQL Server 2012 Integration Services - Gavin Campbell
This talk will discuss the advantages of an incremental approach to data loading in the data warehouse environment, and review the options provided by SQL Server 2012 for implementing this pattern.
We'll take a closer look at SQL Server Change Data Capture from the database engine perspective, then look at how the new Change Data Capture components in SQL Server 2012 Integration Services make it easier to incorporate this technology into your ETL processes.
On arrival please sign in at the reception desk.
One of the main objectives of the user groups is to introduce new speakers, and here at Cardiff we're always looking for to support anyone who has something interesting to share with the SQL Community. We'll give you all the encouragement and support you need. We're really flexible so if you only want to speak for a shorter amount of time, say 15 mins then this is perfectly fine. If you've been thinking about this, then please get in touch with myself, Steph Locke.
