DataPlatformGeeks Virtual Summit

Theme: SQL Server & Azure SQL

AMERICAS – May 5  |  EMEA – May 6  |  APAC – May 7

Many organizations have an aging or under-engineered data platform strategy. While SQL Server on-premises is still a great choice, there’s been a significant trend of moving existing systems to the cloud, building new applications quickly by using the cloud, and offloading some on-premises costs. You also need to understand how the role of a data professional has changed and it’s time to upskill and re-skill yourself and your team members. This virtual symposium will help you to grasp new technologies in the SQL Server world and gain a strong foothold in the Azure SQL cloud world. Sessions will be delivered by Microsoft Product Group Team members & Data Platform MVPs. The event has three editions to suit your time zone – Americas, EMEA & APAC. This year’s event will feature demo-heavy sessions. Time to dive deep into SQL Server & Azure SQL.
