Title:

Democratizing Machine Learning

Speaker:

Jim Karkanias

Abstract:

Machine learning has long been a staple of complex data analysis but it’s difficulty of use has limited access to only those who have been willing and able to dedicate time to mastering it. In the same way VB and Java widened access to complex development tasks, Microsoft is now bringing Machine Learning tools to the world through a simplified toolkit called datalab.

 


Title:
Making Business decisions in real-time
Speaker:

Mark Souza

Abstract:
Whether we call it BI, analytics, decision support or Big Data we do know there are 3 important characteristics that are becoming key to the success in this area: 1) This analytic space is becoming the new mission critical 2) We can’t make decisions fast enough or what we like to call make decisions as soon as the data is born and 3) We are all under constant pressure to lower cost of computing. This session will show you the technology trends that we believe need to happen to realize these three analytical characteristics.


Title:
Women in Technology: Why does it matter? Lunch seminar.
Speaker:
Jen Stirrup
Abstract:

Increasing the role of women in technology has a direct impact on the women working in hi-tech, but the effects can go far beyond that. How do female tech workers influence innovation and product development? How do men benefit from having more women working in technology? Can the presence of women in tech affect a company’s profit? What does it mean for women and their families when they have access to hi-tech jobs?


Title:

Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2014 infrastructure – at Violin Memory speed!

Speaker:

Michael Frandsen and Jens Melhede

Abstract:

In this session we will go into the new storage features in Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2014 combined with the very fast storage systems and PCIe cards from Violin Memory. With Windows Server 2012 a paradigm shift is occurring in how SQL Server platforms are designed and built. Come and hear why you no longer will need a SAN to create a high-available SQL Server and why I/O and latency is no longer a problem when you combine it with Violin Memory solutions. We will talk about InfiniBand, Multi-path I/O, RDMA, RoCE, Violin Flash Memory storage, latency and much more.
