Sean will tell us about the new Analytics Platform System technology from Microsoft. He'll cover Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW), HDInsight/Hadoop, and Microsoft's revolutionary Polybase technology, combining cloud, database, and hadoop data into a single query.

This topic will interest technologist and business users alike, and describe how organizations can take advantage of all their data using the tools they know and love today. He'll discuss the major challenges to data warehousing in the modern age and how APS helps deliver a complete solution.

A demo will highlight the performance of the PDW engine running complex queries against billion row tables in seconds. You'll also see Polybase data mashups showing users how we can combine relational and non-relational data in a single query across different systems.

You Will Learn:

• The 5 most common data warehouse challenges

• APS system performance live in action

• The value-proposition for Parallel Data Warehouse, HDInsight, and Polybase

• How APS works and combines H/W and S/W into an appliance system.
