PASS Business Analytics Conference

The PASS Business Analytics Conference is almost here!  Check out the sessions to be presented at the conference and you will see there are a ton of great sessions and great speakers.  I feel fortunate to be able to speak alongside many of the experts in the industry and to meet many of them for the first time.

I will be arriving Tuesday night in Chicago and attending a pre-conference session on Wednesday.  Thursday and Friday are the conference sessions, and I will be presenting on Friday at 11:15am in the Sheraton 2.  My topic is “Building an Effective Data Warehouse Architecture“.  I also have an alternate presentation ready to go in case a speaker has to cancel at the last-minute.  That presentation is “Overview of Microsoft Appliances“.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to sit at the bloggers table during the keynote speeches, so make sure to check my blog during the times below for updates:

  • Thursday, 8:00-9:15am CST: Microsoft Director of Program Management for BI Kamal Hathi and Technical Fellow Amir Netz
  • Friday, 8:00-9:15am CST: Award-winning economist and Freakonomics author Dr. Steven Levitt

Also, I am staying an extra day in Chicago to present at SQLSaturday.  I will again present “Building an Effective Data Warehouse Architecture” at 4pm EST, as well as a just added “What exactly is Business Intelligence?” at 10:30am EST.

Please shoot me an email if you will be attending and would like to meet up.  Hope to see you there!
