Presenting at Atlanta.MDF

I’m presenting at the Atlanta.MDF group on Monday, January 12th. I’ll be covering a wide range of tips and techniques for analyzing and improving performance of SQL Server-based data analytics solutions. Hope you can make it.

Title: Can Your Data Analytics Solution Scale?

Abstract: Does your ETL exceed its processing window? Do your users complain about the SSRS spinny? Can your SQL Server database design deliver the expected performance? Can the system scale to thousands of users? Join this session to learn best practices and tips for isolating bottlenecks and improving the performance of data analytics solutions. I’ll dissect the layers of a “classic” solution (relational database, ETL, data model, reports) and share solutions harvested from real-life projects to address common performance-related issues.
