Featured Presentation

Polybase – Bringing together Hadoop and SQL Server 2016

Speaker: Ginger Grant, Principal Consultant in Advanced Analytics Desert Isle Group

Summary: SQL Server 2016, which is due to be released later this year, has a lot of really new interesting features. Polybase, one of the new features, integrates data stored in Hadoop with data stored within SQL Server without having to migrate any data, like its predecessor in the Apache space, Sqoop. This session will cover the origins of Polybase, how to set up SQL Server 2016 to use it, and what users can expect to see within SQL Server when querying data outside of it.
