Event Date: 25-04-2015 - Session time: 13:15:00 - Track: Track 1 (DBA)
In this session you will learn how to configure the four key fabric resources (CPU, memory, disk, and network) to enable best performance for your SQL Server workloads. We will also cover how to avoid the little "gotchas" that could really cause you headaches. Find out the impact of NUMA architecture on VM configuration, how to leverage storage capabilities in Windows Server 2012 R2 to enable robust performance, how SR-IOV and RDMA can help boost network performance, and much more. You will also learn how to extend your architecture to Microsoft Azure to allow for additional capabilities.
Event Date: 25-04-2015 - Session time: 13:15:00 - Track: Track 2 (BI)
We shall discuss many of the often used functions, discuss their 'overloads' (utilizing several practical examples) and see how to turn the extracted data into valuable information that may be used by decision makers to help the enterprise achieve its corporate goals.

What do we need to consider, which players do we consider, what are the components, the HA/DR scenario for the same, what technology to use? These are the questions we will attempt to answer along the way. What are the best practices involved in creating a BI infrastructure. We can discuss whether to outsource this project or rise above our DBA job and do it ourselves.
Event Date: 25-04-2015 - Session time: 16:15:00 - Track: Track 2 (BI)
In this session, you will learn what it takes to successfully architect and design SharePoint 2013 as a BI platform. We will cover multiple configuration scenarios and the different technologies necessary to build the infrastructure. At the end of the session, you can walk away feeling confident to run Power Pivot, Power View and Reporting Services in your SharePoint 2013 farm.

At some point in time, these and other destructive scenarios will happen to your databases. And people will look at you and expect you to react swiftly and confidently.
In this session we will demo these scenarios from disaster to resolution. Because if we are the guardians of our SQL Servers then we should all know these recipes.
