Time Topic
6:30 PM Title - Baltimore Technology Opportunities

Abstract - Come learn about the latest trends in the Baltimore job market, get your questions answered and connect with local recruiters.
7:00 PM Title - Getting Started with BI

Abstract - Business Intelligence (BI) is a hot topic, and getting hotter. Today's businesses want to use their data for analysis and to make better decisions. The challenge is retrieving and compiling data from various sources, and to present the data for all users. There are a variety of self-service and enterprise tools and solutions, available today. Microsoft has invested heavily in offering a strong toolset.

In this talk, we will look at the process of creating a business intelligence solution. We will look at the tools in the ever-growing Microsoft BI stack. We will look at considerations when retrieving and processing data from source systems (i.e. Custom web applications, CRM, third-party services, raw log files, etc.). And, we will also look at self-service and enterprise solution designs.

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.
