Come by Microsoft and get a power-update on PDW and the opportunities that the system opens within data warehouse!

Are you looking into a new data warehouse solution? Through this seminar, we will provide you with insights into PDW and how you use it in the best way possible.

Working with PDW will enable you to navigate more quickly in already existing data warehouse setup’s, combined with the opportunity of working with entirely new types of data.

We will introduce you to how we work with the appliance marked at Microsoft.

We will provide you with valuable knowledge on how to determine when to use an appliance solution and when you should construct your own, in order to ensure the most effective solution for you.

We will not only give you an introduction to PDW itself, we will also give you a live demo and discuss best-practice from real customer cases.

When we are talking about PDW, talking about SQL is imperative. At this seminar, we will show you the difference between the two, and show you when to use which.
