Featured Presentation

Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2012: Flipping the DW /faster bit

Speaker: Jimmy May, Senior Program Manager Microsoft

Summary: Columnstore indexes leverage SQL Server xVelocity technologies & is a wholly new architecture optimized for data warehouse workloads. Transparent to the app, columnstore has been shown to render queries at subsecond response times which heretofore took many minutes or longer. This presentation includes an overview of SQL Server 2012 columnstore indexes, including columnstore futures, review of the architecture, as well as the challenges, workarounds, travails, & big wins at customer sites & inside MSIT. Learn whether columnstore can change your users' world & why columnstore may be a compelling reason to upgrade to SQL Server 2012. Learn why columnstore manifests my motto, “Change the world or go home!”
