  • PASS SQL Saturday #687 Slovenia 2017 Submitted Sessions

    Call for speakers for our event is closed. Now we have the hardest work. Out of 150 submitted fantastic session proposals, we need to select only 30. You can see a nice graphical summary of the submitted sessions prepared in Power BI by Tomaž Kaštrun, our new co-organizer. However, you should also not forget on the two great pre-conference ...

  • SQL Server 2017 Integration Services Cookbook

    I coauthored my 15th book Together with Christian Cote (lead author) and Matija Lah (coauthor) we publishes SQL Server 2017 Integration Services Cookbook. Of course, it is kind of early to say this is a definitive guide to SSIS 2017. More accurate name would be SSIS 2016 / 2017 Cookbook. Besides detailed guidelines how to use the 2016 version, you ...

    Clustering is the process of grouping the data into classes or clusters so that objects within a cluster have high similarity in comparison to one another, but are very dissimilar to objects in other clusters. Dissimilarities are assessed based on the attribute values describing the objects. There are a large number of clustering algorithms. The ...

  • The Data Scientist

    A new term - well, perhaps not that new - has come up and I’m actually very excited about it. The term is Data Scientist, and since it’s new, it’s fairly undefined. I’ll explain what I think it means, and why I’m excited about it. In general, I’ve found the term deals at its most basic with analyzing data. Of course, we all do that, and the term ...

  • Big Data and the Cloud - More Hype or a Real Workload?

    Last week Microsoft announced several new offerings for “Big Data” - and since I’m a stickler for definitions, I wanted to make sure I understood what that really means. What is “Big Data”?
