BI Architecture Talk for SPOC

Happy New Year everyone!

I wanted to get the word out that this month’s SQL Professionals of Chattanooga (SPOC) meeting this month on January 27th at 5:30pm at the Business Development Center (BDC) in Chattanooga, TN. It’s located at 100 Cherokee Blvd and you can get there by heading over to the northwest side of town. See here for a map. You can check out the announcement and the group website here:

http://spoc.sqlpass.org/

I will be speaking about the business intelligence (BI) architecture of SQL server at Life Care.

Come on out and learn how we have implemented SQL and how we have taken advantage of the many features and functionality that SQL Server can offer. We have been running this solution in our environment for about 8 years now and there’s not a lot of the ins and outs we haven’t tried. From clustering, to Analysis Services and Power Pivot, to Reporting Services, to Integration Services and everything in between; we try to pull as much business value out of SQL server that we can (and have to for what it costs…).

So if you are interested to hear more about this please feel free to join us for some free food, tech talk, and networking on January 27th at 5:30pm.

Even if you don’t work directly on SQL server or would like to learn more about SQL Server or aren’t even sure where to start learning, we are always open to having new people from the area to attend so that we can learn from each other. In the end that’s what this is all about! Creating a community of knowledge that can benefit anyone who wants to learn more.

Thanks!

If you have never come out to a SQL Server User group meeting I highly encourage you to come out and get to know other people who work in your area who more than likely have the same problems and maybe even a few cool solutions to things you have been struggling with.

If you haven’t already head on over to http://sqlpass.org and read up on what is coming up.

Next week is the big PASS conference in Seattle, Washington. Head on over to http://www.sqlpass.org/summit/2014/RegisterNow.aspx to learn more about it as well. Even if you can’t go they usually stream the keynote presentations and offer all of the sessions to be purchased at a later date.

Enjoy!
