Featured Presentation:

"There Be Whales Here!" -- Big Data in SQL Server

Aaron Cutshall, Sr. Data Architect QuintilesIMS, Inc.

People most often think that to handle Big Data one must use Hadoop, MongoDB, or some other NoSQL database. This is typically due to the varying definitions of Big Data that try to relate data volume and data organization. SQL Server can easily store and manipulate very large volumes of data and perform quite well provided the database is properly set up and tuned. In this session we'll cover some of the misconceptions of Big Data, look at some Big Data solutions that went wrong, review a case where Big Data was successfully implemented in SQL Server and peek under the covers to see how that was done.
