Business analytics is the hottest ticket in the IT world these days.  The trouble is, the industry doesn’t seem to agree on what “it” might be.  Is analytics jazzed up reporting and slick dashboards?  Is it statistical modeling?  Is it Hadoop?  Is it SAS?  Is it PowerView? What’s a poor technical manager to do when the C-Suite demands it?
Business analytics is the art and science of data driven decision making.  Analytics projects span corporate performance management, reporting, dashboarding, statistical analysis, predictive modeling, a/b experimentation, and a host of other techniques all designed to help organizations make fact based decisions using business data.  
Rusty Frioux from DataClear will sort out truth from hype and give some practical guidance for anyone tasked with starting an analytics initiative.

In this session, we'll explore the key issues involved in instrumenting .NET applications to proactively drive production excellence using runtime information and supporting artifacts. We will cover development through post-deployment challenges and discuss requirement and implementation differences for both high and low volume application scenarios. As part of the process, we will work through a small framework with some of the concepts as a take away.

The session explains Attributes and Hierarchies in Analysis Services 2012 Semantic Model. They are used to slice (filter) and dice (group) measures and dimensions used to view analytical data.  The slicing and dicing of data involves fields, columns, or whatever you want to labeled them. But, in SQL Server Semantic model these are called Attributes and Hierarchies. The configuration of these slicers and dicers are important in SQL Server Analysis Services. This session will demonstrate the difference between an attribute and columns in a hierarchy in the dimension as well as the configuration of these for best performance and viewing.

Now that the .NET Framework has been out for 10 years and so many tools are available to make things easier, many developers seem to have forgotten some of the core principles of .NET. In this presentation, I'll review the fundamentals of the .NET Framework and what makes all of that magic happen. From the CLR to IL to memory management and garbage collection, we'll touch on these core concepts that every developer should know.

The time has come where DBAs can no longer afford to ignore powershell. Not only has it become an integral part of SQL Server, but we’re being asked to do things on a much grander scale than ever before; things that can only be done with powershell. This session will take you from nothing and explain what powershell is all about. I’m going to show you how the more things change the more they stay the same and if you master the basics of powershell in this session, you’ll be able to work with powershell not only in SQL Server, but also at the file system level, in Exchange, IIS, Windows, and anything else. So in this session I’m going to show you the basics you need to get your powershell career started.

If you were in the 1.0 session you’ll love this one. In this session we’re going to pick up where we left off and really get into some real SQL Server admin tasks. We’ll start with some more advanced basics to enhance your knowledge of powershell, and then apply them directly to SQL Server. By the end of this session you won’t be an expert, but my goal is to make you competent enough to be able to understand blogs and articles about powershell.

If you'd like to become a database professional - or if you already work with SQL Server at all - you need to know Transact-SQL, the SQL Server programming language. During this session, we’ll design and create our own table to demonstrate key concepts, query syntax, and more. If you’ve been meaning to learn T-SQL, here’s your chance!

In this session we will explore writing an English-based rules engine that allows developers to create domain-specific rules for an application that can be easily understood by anyone. We will use a combination of C# and the DLR (dynamic language runtime) with IronRuby on the .NET platform to create a way to write, manage, and process rules for an application.

One of the most popular platforms for building a company intranet is SharePoint. In the past, a challenge faced by many organizations was aggregating, reusing, and formatting  information from various areas in SharePoint. SharePoint 2013 includes several new features that change the approach of aggregating and formatting data for employees. This session will dive into these new features such as the content by search web part, display templates, and jslink. If you are building or plan on building  an intranet on the SharePoint 2013 platform, this session is a must see!

Change Tracking came out with SQL Server 2008, but SS2012 almost eclipsed it with Change Data Capture.  Change Tracking is now the red-headed step child, but in many cases may be a better solution for data ETL movement from an OLTP database to a data warehouse database.  This session will provide a review of change tracking syntax and implementation with detailed demos.  It will then dive into an actual ETL subset implementation from the AdventureWorks database to a data warehouse solution (modified AdventureWorksDW) with detailed code discussion and demos.

FILESTREAM and FileTable offer attractive solutions for applications that need to store large binary data (BLOBs) alongside relational data. With the benefit of the SQL Server storage engine managing the BLOB data but without the downsides of VARBINARY(MAX), FILESTREAM and FileTable have advantages that no other solution offers. This session will demonstrate how to design and create databases with these features. Because the paradigm is different than relational storage, the management aspect of FILESTREAM will also be examined, including transactional integrity, the garbage collector and backup and restore.

Search in SharePoint 2013 has many new features to deliver an excellent document management experience.  In this talk, we'll learn how to take advantage of the hard work you have invested in classifying your documents with rich metadata.  Administrators will learn step-by-step how to map crawled properties to managed properties allowing you to query and refine on the data in your site columns.  We'll look in depth at managed property options such as queryable, retrievable, and refinable.  Once we demonstrate the intricacies of property mapping, attendees will learn how to take advantage of them in the Search Center.  We'll create custom result types to display custom data from site columns and we'll configure the refinement panel to allow users to drill down results in ways never before possible.   Finally, we'll show you how to use entity extraction to infer values of metadata allowing you to do refinement.

Having clean data is a critical component in data warehousing and business intelligence systems.  With the release of SQL Server 2012 Microsoft has provided a powerful tool to help organizations in tackling their data quality issues.  We will look at this new Data Quality Services tool, its strengths and weaknesses.  We will also looks at some customizations that can be built to handle some tasks better, such as pattern matching.  The focus will be on how SSIS can help clean the data that will eventually end up in your warehouse.
