Featured Presentation

SQL Server 2012 Analytic Functions

Speaker: John Cook Microsoft

Summary: SQL Server has three classes of windowing functions: • Ranking functions • Aggregate functions • Analytic functions Analytic functions introduce new keywords such as LAG, LEAD, FIRST_VALUE, LAST_VALUE, ROWS PRECEDING, and ROWS FOLLOWING to simplify what were formerly complex queries. This PowerPoint free demo is also sample code. Starting with simple examples, additional features are added a step at a time so you can learn new and simpler ways to do complex tasks.

About John: John was a five time Microsoft SQL Server MVP prior to joining Microsoft where he is a Technology Solution Professional for the Data Platform.

Integrating Hadoop with Microsoft BI – Part 2

Speaker: Tyler Chessman

Summary: Picking up from last month’s presentation (based on his recent article in SQL Server Pro), Tyler will continue working through an example of how to use and integrate Hadoop with SQL Server and Microsoft BI tools. • Creating a Table Definition in Hadoop • Querying Hive Tables • Using the Hive ODBC Driver • Linked Server definition in SQL Server
