  • PASS Summit 2015 and news about on-premises BI #ssas #tabular #sqlpass

    I don’t usually blog about news, unless there is a relevant impact on future directions.

  • A new hope. Tale from SQL Saturday 454 #sqlsat454

    This is one of the few non-technical posts of this blog. Just skip it if you want to quickly come back to 100% BI related topics. Last Saturday we run the SQL Saturday 454 in Turin. I was part of the organization, and actually I was one of the promoters for this event, running on the same city just a few months after SQL Saturday 400. The reason ...

  • Microsoft shut down MCM/MCSM/MCA programs–my recap #msmcm

This raised an interesting discussion about the reasons why such a certification does not exists, whether it was really necessary, what it should include, and so on.

  • Not selected as a speaker at PASS Summit 2013 #sqlpass #sqlfamily

    I received the communication from the PASS Program Committee that none of my proposals have been accepted at PASS Summit 2013. Probably this year there was too many proposals and I made a mistake not using all the possible proposals available per speaker. In fact, I just proposed one pre-conference day and two regular sessions: From 0 to DAX ...
