BI Conference - SQLBits - Birmingham (UK)

Dear Friends,
Today I'm very happy!! I received the confirmation for the next SQLBits conference in Birmingham(UK). And I'm happy for several reasons...

  • I will return to Birmingham where I finished my IT Degree some years ago (NewMan College 2001)
  • I will attend to the sessions of Chris Webb and Darren Green that are one of my main sources of inspiration and Allan Mitchell that is one of the authors of my favorite SSIS book at WROX.
  • Change knowledge with the BI comunity and see old and new friends.
  • Learn more about BI and SQL 2008 tools
  • Enjoy Birmingham lifestyle again!
I'm sure you have a lot of reasons like me to the conference. Dont waste more time, there are more than 400 people confirmed!!

Blog is simply great.. I enjoyed reading particularly about the overview of their webinars.. Did you attend - "Master Data Management" by Sutha Thiru ? Could you describe all about this in short..

Pedro said...

Hi Subhash,
yes i attended that session! Was great, but the way he made the session wasn't atractive, but I will try to detail something about it.

Dear Pedro,
Sorry that I required some edits on my reply for you last comment but unfortunately I didn't find that option.
Hope you know the trend in MDM - Master Data Management. I am really keen about the Microsoft's solution for MDM. So that I can brief comparisons with Teradata's Solution for the same. You might want to look at Teradata's Technology solution for MDM here:

Dear Subhash,
I will try to do it for you. Today I read your doc and you made a very good work. I have some comments to do mainly about SSIS08 that I'm currently using for my master BI degree. Thanks for your visit!!!
Cheers my friend!

Dear Pedro,
I registered in the conference and get the confirmation, That was the good news, but after that I realized that I cannot get the visa in appropriate time, therefore I had to send a request to site's admin to cancel my registration.
I realized that I have to get a Visa for coming to UK, and Unfortunately it is not an easy Task.
Finally I hope reading about its topic more from you.

Best Regards,
