Event description

Description

Are you facing platform ‘end of life’ issues? Under increasing pressures to digitise your business processes? Do you want to reduce risk in your SQL modernisation programme? Looking to track ‘real world items’ through your business?

If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then please join our workshop, which is aimed at IT decision makers, to learn more about our proven approaches to delivering data modernisation projects,

You will learn what Microsoft has planned for SQL Server and the potential for the Internet of Things (IoT). We will show you how Berensden plc, an industrial laundry service provider, leveraged the Microsoft IoT platform to gain operational efficiencies that led to eBECS being selected as an IoT finalist for ‘Microsoft Partner of the Year 2016’.

You will also learn how to take advantage of modern data platform technologies to build the optimum data architecture that your business needs, all of which are implemented using our ‘rapid delivery’ methodology at minimum risk to your business.

During this workshop, we will also discuss SQL modernisation, the Modern Data Warehouse and the growing argument between SQL Azure and SQL ‘on-premise’ solutions.
