Adelaide SQL Server User Group

Welcome

Welcome to the Adelaide PASS group - covering SQL Server and every aspect of the Microsoft Data Platform and Data Analytics space. You can find us on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, at the Microsoft offices, Level 12, 147 Pirie St.

There's a link below to get on the mailing list. This is a mailchimp list, rather than the one that PASS handles.

We use EventBrite for meeting registrations - please look at adssug.eventbrite.com for a list of our meetings.

Many years ago, we used sqlserver.org.au, and you can see an archive of events on that site - but the Adelaide mailing list from there hasn't been used for some time.

Now, a quick word about privacy...

The details of event registrations are held with EventBrite, and I use that to update my EventBrite contacts, which is then used to update a mailchimp list for sending emails about the group. If you ever want to be removed from either my EventBrite contact list or the mailchimp list, please just let me know (rob at lobsterpot.com.au). I do this for you and will do my best to keep your privacy private.

Parallel Data Warehouse - why the Data Movement is so critical
PDW is a major investment. Getting a rack-sized device, dedicated to run SQL Server, can seem like overkill compared to what you have now. But PDW is different. It's not just a data warehouse with lots of processors available - it offers advantages through parallelism that can be game-changing. In this session, Rob explores how a PDW system uses Data Movement to make phenomenal performance gains real. By learning about the inner-workings, PDW can change from being in the realm of the strange unknown to being a familiar technology that can become a very real option for your organisation.

Speaker: Rob Farley
Rob Farley runs LobsterPot Solutions, a specialist data consultancy dealing with the Microsoft Data Platform. He's been an MVP since 2006, largely because of his blogging, his presentations around the world, and his dedication to the Adelaide SQL Server User Group which he has led since before the release of SQL Server 2005. He's on Twitter at @rob_farley, but you can always email him using rob@lobsterpot.com.au
