Event description

Description

When new things come along you don’t want to abandon what works. You need to learn, adapt, and integrate the new while maintaining the old. In this interactive full day session we will work through three different scenarios. The first helps us answer the question, What is the best day of the week to see your favorite Baseball team play if you want to see them win? The second is, Does the social media sentiment on Twitter indicate if a new movie will succeed or fail at the box office? The third is how do I collect historical social media information for trend analysis? We will answer one question using entirely on-premises solutions SQL Server 2017, in-database R, Polybase, Hadoop Storage, and Power BI Report Server. We will answer the other questions using the cloud, Python, Logic Apps, SQL DB, Power BI. All of these techniques teach you how to find, consume, store, and visualize data in a way that makes your data warehouse relevant again.
