Julie Koesmarno, Senior Project Manager at Microsoft, takes the stage to talk about business analytics utilizing War and Peace.

Tracing emotions of each key characters via a heat map…..pretty cool to see application of SQL Light language.

Cognitive capabilities managed with big data……


Deep learning is everywhere; this means that SQL Server 2016 falls into that category. Seeing a demo on drone functionality and feeling the pulse of the power grid


Jen Stirrup (Data “Whisperer”) takes the stage and talks Pokemon…..yes folks Pokemon but there is more than that.

Utilizing Power BI for the activity for each Pokemon sprinkled in with some “R”. The data itself is stored in the Azure SQL Database with utilizing the Azure Services.

 

 

PASS Summit Live Keynote – Release 3

Justin Silver, Scientist Pros, takes the stage……

Taking data science out of the lab settings and placing it into real world scenarios.

Azure has tremendously been able to allow enhanced functionality into the realm of data science bridging the gap 100x faster with SQL Server 2016.

Microsoft is the only vendor that has the depth and breathe to handle the capacity the Pros company needs in order to succeed.


Sneak preview after Just leaves the stage……HTAP solution scaled out.

What can we do to solve a data visualization problem within SQL server and how can we expand its capabilities. SQL Server 2016 shipped with Polybase to  help provide this type of solution….the always on functionality can replicate 10 times the data from where we were in the past.


Intelligent Database Service – machine learning to capture behaviors for intelligent capabilities.

Better together with Windows Server – unparalleled SMP capability

Yes folks…just saw a restore onto SQL Server running on Linux…..installed SQL; restored backup from windows…..keeps getting better.

22,000+ registrations >50% of fortune 500

 

 

PASS Summit Live Keynote -Release 2

Rohan Kumar, General Manager of Microsoft, takes the stage hyping up SQL Server 2016. We keep hearing the word “Sharing” among databases.

Intelligent Database:

  1. In-Memory Analytics
  2. In-Memory OLTP

Wow, 100X faster analytics + 30x faster transactions

Azure SQL database is the first in the world to support HTAP technology

Two worlds coming together – industry leading in-memory enhancements with built-in advanced analytics with R

One million transactions per second using SQL 2016 – that’s right….you heard that.

R services integration into SQL 2016 – is pretty powerful

 

PASS Summit Live Keynote – Release 1

Joseph Sirosh taking the stage by first telling us a story with over 400 million children in India. Only 50% of them attend school regularly. Consider the loss of potential that could have been a doctor.

Millions more like these children; a world of lost human potential. Millions who drop out on opportunities. Enter the term Data. The school infrastructure and other parameters will allow them to predict school drop out and the risk of under performance.

All this from data? Over 5 million children will be scored by data machine learning and the Azure cloud?

A.C.I.D. Intelligence – Algorithms/Cloud IOT/Data

Intelligence of software in every piece of software that we have. Finished applications like office 365 to many more by sprinkling the so cold pixie dust of A.C.I.D into the mix.

Intelligence DB – Intelligent Lake – Deep Intelligence

Intelligence DB – pushing intelligence to where data lives. Sharing machine learning around marketable applications is key. This pattern will allow intelligence to become just like data.

SQL 2016 is truly becoming the platform for data intelligence

Good morning from PASS Summit 2016!

Today will be the first keynote session at 8:15 a.m. with Joseph Sirosh. I’ve found myself back at the bloggers table this year during the keynotes so check back here for updates and highlights.

In addition to these updates (plan on sending 4-5 mass live updates throughout the keynote) I will also be live tweeting with the hashtag #SQLSummit.

Have a great day and enjoy the time we have here.
