Our own Rick Heiges is presenting “Winning with Columnstore – A Customer Story” at the SQL Saturday #693 event in Washington DC.

Here is the abstract of his session

This session will feature a real story of a customer who was running into performance and scaling issues on a big iron Oracle RAC system and why they decided to consider the magic of the Column Store for this situation. The discussion will focus on the existing environments for testing both SQL 2016 and Oracle as well as the methodologies used for testing. We will examine the decisions made for choosing indexes (both traditional and column store) for the main tables in the data warehouse as well as the partitioning strategies employed. We will wrap up the discussion with the results of the testing and where they are now.

SQL Saturday is free, so if you happen to be near the Microsoft Technology Center in Chevy Chase Maryland on December 9 2017, sign up and be sure to say hello to Rick.
