Join us for “Lead the way in the new world of data” virtual event

Recently, I put up my Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Virtual Labs Available To You Online, plus many more SQL Server 2012 resources post here on the blog and the response has been incredible! Tons of people have been taking advantage of the large collection of free SQL Server 2012 resources we have available to you. Just the other day, I added several more to that list as an update, including an upcoming virtual event, “Lead the way in the new world of data,” we are hosting and making available to everyone, everywhere on Tuesday, April 10th from 8:30 am PST to 10:00 am PST.

Through the “Lead the way in the new world of data” event, you will be able to join us for an expert panel discussion with Microsoft and industry leaders sharing real world solutions and reviewing the latest enterprise roadmap for business and data platform advancements. Who are the executive participants, you ask? Take a look:

  • Terri Jordan – Vice President of Technology, Microsoft Retail Stores
  • Kenneth Cukier – Data Editor, The Economist
  • Ted Kummert – Corporate Vice President, Business Platform Division, Microsoft
  • Barry Briggs – CTO and Chief Architect, Microsoft IT

From 8:30 am PST – 9:15 am PST, Microsoft executives and thought leaders will conduct a discussion on industry trends and the possibilities of analytics in the new world of data. Then from 9:15 am PST until 10:00 am PST, Kenneth Cukier, Data Editor at The Economist, and industry leaders will discuss how companies are managing and capitalizing on data. Microsoft customers will share their challenges, experiences and solutions to the issues.

This virtual event is available to everyone and an ideal event for CIOs and Technical Decision Makers to attend. To attend, you can simply register here online. You can also see more about this virtual event, and view a collection of videos discussing Big Data, BI, and SQL Server on the “Lead the way in the new world of data” virtual event site.
