SQLBits 9–Master Data Services Training Day

As I’m sure many of you have heard, SQLBits 9 has been announced and will be at the Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool from 29th September to 1st October this year.  Jeremy and I will be presenting a full day training on Master Data Services

Master your data with MDS

A end to end look inside Master Data Services, this full day course will begin with a synopsis of Master Data Management before moving on to an overview of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services (MDS) and then looking in detail at topics such as:

  • installing, configuring, and maintaining Master Data Services
  • creating and using models
  • version management
  • business rules and workflow
  • importing data into Master Data Services
  • Integrating with other systems
  • Security. 

It will also take a brief look at what’s coming next for MDS in the SQL Server Denali.
This course is for anyone who wants to manage and maintain their business master data and improve data quality with Microsoft SQL Server Master Data Services.  A basic understanding of Microsoft SQL Server is required.

If you don’t fancy MDS, there are ten other training days being offered.

Registration for the training days and conference should be open in the next few weeks and pricing remains the same as last time – an unbelievable £375 for the full conference if you book before 26th August!
