Time Topic
6:30 PM Title - Learn how to Pivot your SQL Server Data

Abstract - The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how to PIVOT data. Usually pivoting data is done when requiring aggregate data, but I will show you how to PIVOT data when you need non-aggregate data.

7:00 PM Title - Extracting Value from Structured and Unstructured Data with SQL Server’s PolyBase

Abstract - As the volume and velocity of data continues to grow exponentially, companies are faced with the challenge of deriving valuable insights from data sets that are stored within SQL Server and various Big Data platforms (e.g. Hadoop).

During this introductory session to the PolyBase feature of SQL Server 2016, we will explore how companies can leverage PolyBase to connect structured data that exists within SQL Server to unstructured data that is stored in Azure HDInsight.

Baltimore SQL Server Users Group History

The BSSUG was started in the days before SQL Server 7.0, back in 1999, by Raymond Barley.  The group has met in a few different places and been co-lead by a few different individuals, but the group has always been in the BWI-Columbia area.  We are a constantly growing group and always interested in meeting new members.  We are a member of the Capital PC Users Group and a SQL PASS official chapter.
