Micrsosoft BI conference cancellation
For the last few years Microsoft has hosted a business intelligence conference in the fall. This year they decided not to have a conference. You can read the announcement on their web site. PASS remains committed to providing a strong line up of business intelligence sessions at PASS Summit Unite 2009 in November. PASS has taken a number of steps in response to this situation:
- We previously increased the number of sessions at the Summit. The PASS Summit will have a strong session line up for both business intelligence and OLTP.
- We split the business intelligence track into two tracks. This will help us focus on the tasks required build and manage business intelligence solutions.
- We extended the call for speakers by two weeks. If you planned on speaking at the MS BI Conference we want to give you plenty of time to submit an abstract to the PASS Summit.
- Our Summit is a great mix of community and Microsoft sessions. We continue to work closely with Microsoft to make sure you get the best sessions possible.
Don't forget that April is the last month to receive the discounted rate of $1,195. The rates go up on May 1st -- three short weeks away.
