A dive into Data Quality Services,Alright,WHY is the server REALLY running so slow!,Database design for mere developers,Get your Mining Model Predictions out to all,Get your Mining Model Predictions out to all. Presentation en Francais
Steve Simon, Senior Business Intelligence Development Engineer Atrion Networking Corporation
Presentation en Francais: Data quality and data cleansing have always been major challenges to any enterprise that deals with data. For those of us who have dealt with Data Profiler Tasks in SQL Server 2008, we were shocked yet pleasantly surprised with the great advances that Microsoft has made with the advent of Data Quality Services, in the SQL Server 2012 release. In this hands-on presentation we shall be looking at how to set up a new knowledge base, based upon an existing one, set up rules, do knowledge discovery within the new knowledge base and finally cleanse the data through a data quality project. The end results being more effective data, guaranteed to keep end users and management happy.
Master Data Services is one of the most phenomenal advances to hit the SQL Server Business Intelligence community in years. In the hands on presentation we shall de-mystify the entity , attribute and hierarchy jungle that most beginners find very challenging and see how easily top not results may be achieved with a minimal amount of time and effort.
This presentation is meant to introduce the power of SQL Server to the "total novice". Often folks arrive at SQL Saturdays hoping to attend a session aimed at the novice. Well this is your chance!!. This hands on presentation assumes that you know NOTHING about SQL Server and that you must come up to speed in a minimal amount of time. We shall learn about the varied components of the product and end up creating a few simple queries, giving you enough knowledge to go back to your workplace and to perform like a star.

Reporting Services for Mere DBAs,SQL 2012 Extended Events
Jason Brimhall, Sr. DBA Ntirety
Extended Events were introduced in SQL Server 2008. With SQL 2012, we have seen a significant upgrade to this feature. Join me for a little adventure into what extended events are. We will discuss how to use extended events to aid in performance tuning and in day to day administration. We will also explore some background and the architecture of extended events.
As a DBA in the modern era, you may be required from time to time to do something outside of your comfort zone. One of these things may be to become quickly acquainted with SSRS. Even better is that you may be required to do things you have not considered in a standard report. In this session, you will learn how to implement a framework to help provide a common ground for your reports. This session will delve into fun topics such as dynamic grouping and dynamic sorting. We are not talking about the interactive sorting that your accountant may use. Attendees will also be introduced to a few quick methods of exporting Reports from the report server - this is from a DBA perspective after-all!
