Title: Data-driven Subscription using SSIS and SharePoint

Abstract: SQL Server Reporting Services provides data-driven subscriptions to render reports based on information in a database table. This is a very nice feature but the down side is that you are required to purchase an Enterprise license (or BI license in SQL 2012) of SQL Server in order to use this feature. Customers like this feature but don’t want to pay for the Enterprise license so I searched for an alternative with standard licenses. In this session I will show the alternative where the end user can still create his own subscription in SharePoint. Step-by-step I will create an SQL Server Integration Services package that renders reports to a SharePoint library on values stored in the database.

Title: Power View from the Data Visualisation Perspective

Abstract: Power View is Microsoft’s Data Visualisation tool. Where does it get it right, and where does it get it wrong? Using demos, we learn about Power View whilst assessing it based on current cognitive research around Data Visualisation principles by luminaries such as Stephen Few, Tufte and others. We will:

  • investigate Power View based on current cognitive research around Data Visualisation principles
  • look at the features of Power View
  • look at where Power View is supplemented by other parts of the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack

Come to this session if you really want to think about the best ways of presenting data to your Business Intelligence data consumers, and see how to apply these principles in Power View.

Title: The Power of Custom Assemblies in Analysis Service

Abstract: Sometimes you are stuck with customer demands where common solutions just aren’t scalable within the Analysis Services (SSAS) regular toolbox. This is where custom assemblies come to save the day! Custom assemblies allow you to extend the power of SSAS by using other technologies, as in this case T-SQL and the SQL Server relational engine.

This session will demonstrate how to utilize custom assemblies in Analysis Services to leverage the power of the relational engine and use it directly in MDX. Through the .Net framework and T-SQL we will be able to inject dimension member unique names into MDX. Effectively we are replacing the MDX Crossjoins with the T-SQL Inner joins, whereby gaining scalability and consistency in query perfo

Title: Getting SQL Service Broker Up and Running

Abstract: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and 2008 include a fantastic feature that few people understand or use. That feature is the Microsoft SQL Server Service Broker. The SQL Service Broker is one of the least used features within the database engine, and that lack of use is simply from last of knowledge about the feature.

In this session we’ll dig into how to configure the service broker for not only intra-database message queuing, but database to database queuing as well as server to server database queuing. We will also dig into a real life scenario where the SQL Server Service Broker was used to do ETL from an OLTP database to an OLAP database in near real time for near real time reporting (as time allows).

Title: Securing the Cube; SSAS security framework

Abstract: Secure, Enable, Maintain, Sustain. In depth discussion on a SSAS security framework with SSIS maintenance toolkits. Create security roles in the cube that enable the business based on underlying data patterns. Presentation covers creation of roles in the cube, with a demo creating SSIS roles with a toolkit based on the adventureworks db model and cube. Using integrated security, service accounts and data sources in the presentation layers this we walk through a security model for end-to-end security as can be implemented in sharepoint integrated solutions and/or standalone reports. This presentation provides real world application and an SSIS toolkit to take away and implement in your solutions.

Title: Remodel your old EAV design

Abstract: Sometimes you really need an EAV model. In most cases they are ugly and slow. After this session you will have gained new insights how to turn your old, slow, EAV model into a slim superfast model.

There will be real life examples from a recent project. With the techniques displayed in the presentation, I cut the execution time down from 134 days down to 0.5 seconds and cut the storage need from 550GB to 45GB.

  • Bob Duffy

Track and Room: Track 2 - N/A

Title: ETL Shootout, SSIS vs Powershell

Abstract: I know what you’re thinking, Powershell is not an ETL tool. And you’re probably right. But I keep running into weird requests that were just easier to fix with Powershell. I’ll show you why some things are not easy in SSIS. I’ll also discuss how you can work around a lot of that instead of switching to Powershell like I did. This session will be around 70% “why is this hard in SSIS and can you work around it?” and 30% “Look how cool Powershell is”


  • André Kamman

Track and Room: Track 3 - N/A

Title: SQL Server 2012 AlwaysOn

Abstract: Business continuity is becoming more and more a central topic for many companies. AlwaysOn is the new solution for high availability and disaster recovery introduced with SQL Server 2012.

Title: CAST([Transaction Log] as T.SQL)

Abstract: The aim of this session is to take the audience in a quest for the original (or equivalent) T-SQL, that was in the origin of the different transactions recorded, by inspecting the transaction log records and dissecting its data. In a session that tackles several internals storage issues, needed to fulfill its objective, we will go in a travel that starts by the end of the log and will, hopefully, only end at the birth of the database.

Title: Storing Character Data Optimally

Abstract: So you need to store character data in your database? Easy enough, you just create an nvarchar(MAX) field and you’re done, right? It turns out, it’s not so simple. First up you need to decide on a data type - should you use text? Char(100)? Varchar(100)? Or perhaps one of the (MAX) types? I’ll go through the options we have, including a deep dive on how each data type differs in its storage on disk. Knowing this, we can make intelligent decisions on which type to use, as well as predicting actual performance implications. Knowing how to store character data optimally is an absolutely critical part of your job as a DBA.

Track and Room: Track 1 - N/A

Title: SQLServer2012 as semantic search engine

Abstract: With the increase in the number of documents created, received and stored by computer, consequently increases the difficulty and time to retrieve these documents based on their content and meaning. With SQL Server 2012 and its new features of Filestream and FullText engine, it is possible to go beyond the “classical” management of key words and phrases linked to each document. Thanks to semantic search you can search for documents according to their meaning, find related documents and retrieve similar documents easily and effectively.

Antipatterns is a way of naming common design errors in order to make them easier to remember - even if you haven’t done them yet.

We will become acquainted with antipatterns on a physical level, a logical level and an sql-queries and application level, and spice it up with some seriously foolish errors made by me and my colleagues. The session is relevant for developers and DBAs.
