Speaking at SQL Konferenz next week

darmstadtTime flies, next week it is already time for the annual SQL Konferenz in Darmstadt, Germany. There I will be giving a speak on Azure Data Lake Store and Azure Data Lake Analytics, and how these can be used in different scenarios. It will be a session filled with technical information and lots of demos.

In conjunction with this, I have been asked to join Data Exposed Studio, a panel discussion together with
Oliver Engels (Panel Host) (L | T), Michael Rys (L | T) and Sascha Dittmann (L | T) – at this panel discussion we will debate The U in Big Data – Do we need a new language?

Data Exposed Studio is a panel discussion, which will be recorded on Video. The format is 45min
long and starts 15 minutes after the parallel sessions in a small TV studio we will setup at the conference.
There will be room for approx. 15 people as audience in the studio.

New Features in SQL Server 2016 – Always encrypted

2015-11-02 20_28_22-sql server 2016 - Google-SucheThere are many new features in SQL Server 2016, but the one we will focus on in this post is:

  • Always encrypted

A feature many companies and developers have been waiting, is now finally being implemented in SQL Server. The feature is called Always Encrypted, the main purpose of this feature is to secure your data. Your data will only be visible to the ones logged into an application consuming the data, and will never be transferred from application to database unencrypted.

New Features in SQL Server 2016 – Temporal Data Tables

2015-11-02 20_28_22-sql server 2016 - Google-SucheThere are many new features in SQL Server 2016, but the one we will focus on in this post is:

  • Temporal Database Tables

One of the many new features in SQL server 2016 is the built-in support for temporal data tables. This is a feature that many developers have been urging to have as a “out of the box feature” – and therefore many have developed their own ways of implementing the capability to store information about how data looked in a certain period of time.
