Big Data for the SQL Ninja
As more enterprises start implementing big data/Hadoop solutions, how does the SQL Server DBA support these efforts and do they have the skills and knowledge to integrate big data solutions into their current architecture? This demo-filled session will first help DBAs understand how to apply their existing SQL Server skills in understanding and utilizing HDInsight and related technologies. We'll then show how SQL Server, HDInsight, and related technologies can be used together to solve big data problems. As we shift to environments that include more than just relational data, the need to understand how to work with this data becomes increasingly important.
