PDW: Free Seminar on Data Warehouse Appliances from Microsoft

2010 November 15
by Brian Mitchell

Now that SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse has been formally announced last week at PASS, I’m sure we will see a steady stream of information from Microsoft about its SQL Server appliance strategy. 

It begins with a Free Seminar from Microsoft, Bill Inmon, and William McKnight on Tuesday November 16th.  Register here.  I’ll be attending as I always like to hear what the marketing team is telling customers.  It helps me understand how they came about with their expectations for product performance.


WHAT: Leveraging Data Warehousing Appliances for High-Performance BI

WHEN: Tuesday, November 16th 2010 – 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM (EDT)
