Singapore SQLUG on 2nd Dec 2010:: Special guest from SQL Server Team


We have SQL Server User Group Meeting on 2nd December 2010 at Aventus Training (Tanjong Pagar)


The Future of SQL Server

I believe that there are many of you are busy migrating. Moving and upgrading from previous version to SQL Server 2008, and some of you already using SQL Server 2008 R2. There are tons of R2 features we can count on, especially on BI part. We already have countless meeting in the past talking about those BI enhancements, its benefit, and how does it improve and impact our development. Now it’s time for reflection. What we have done in the past. What we have achieved, and what are our expectation for the future. Are there any features you want to include in the next release? Do you have any idea on how to make this platform better in the future?

Come and join us with 2 executives from SQL Server product team in our next meeting. This is the right time to hear about strategic direction of SQL Server directly from people who made the product. You may have some concerns, wish list and feedback. Nobody knows better other than us on how SQL Server performs in daily production. Our feedback will be very valuable for the product team to make necessary improvements.

Bring your boss too; he/she may have strategic idea that will be valuable for our meeting.

We will discuss the following topics:

  • SQL Server achievements and its market position
  • Who and how “big” customer uses SQL Server
  • Latest benchmark on SQL Server, focus on high availability and performance
  • Long-term SQL direction
  • An overview of Denali, the future of SQL Server
  • Get feedback from users on SQL needs
