6:30 PM Meet & Greet | 7 PM Presentation
Happy 2013 everybody! Welcome back to another year with the Fort Worth SQL Server Users Group! We're happy to crack open the new year's lecture series with Mike Hotek. He always brings crazy amounts of industry experience and knowledge to the discussion.
A large number of people, including many at Microsoft have bought into the marketing BS called “Big Data”. When you hear “big data”, everyone automatically assumes that you have to do this in some other database platform being foisted on IT. The marketing myth that many have bought into is that SQL Server can’t handle “big data”. This session will walk you through the architecture and build out of a real world data warehouse, built entirely with SQL Server, which is currently in excess of 10 Exabytes.
Mike Hotek is the Senior Business Intelligence Architect for CBRE. He has been building SQL Server systems and database management best practices for almost 20 years having worked with thousands of companies and on the largest, most complicated platforms in the world. Mike has delivered hundreds of sessions and training events around the world and has published numerous articles along with 8 books. He is currently working on a four book series on SQL Server 2012.
