  • A week in Seattle

    Tomorrow morning I’ll fly to Seattle for the usual PASS Community Summit. I’m really happy for the next week. Even if this period is really full of work and a week away means that at my return I’ll have *really* busy times, the PASS Conference is always a nice break: meeting old and new friends, learning new things, enjoying beers and cocktails ...

  • SET IDENTITY_INSERT little bug(?)

    While I was working on a package to incrementally load a dimension in the DWH I’m developing for a customer, I stumbled upon a tricky little bug (I think, I still have to have a response from MS) that had – and will have – a little impact on how I create my packages. I’ve found that, when working on an empty table that has an identity column, if ...

  • Agile BI Development: QueryUnit is born!

    Having a developer background I’m used to work trying to apply an Agile approach to projects.

  • Self-Service Business Intelligence

    The next Microsoft Business Intelligence Conference is coming and I just looked at sessions to include in my agenda. Every time I do this work, I find something in sessions descriptions that anticipates something that is coming out as news announcement in some of the keynote. But this time, session titles are enough to see that big news are ...

  • Is a BI methodology truly independent from the underlying technology?

    This post is part of a Methodology discussion - other posts will follows. I will be happy to get your feedback! Building a BI solution (like any kind of software project), it is normal to look for existing methodologies and best practices, just to avoid pitfalls and get better results.

  • SSIS 2008 Data Profiling Task

    Jamie Thomson has posted a great series on the SSIS 2008 Data Profiling Task. The Data Profiling Task allows developers to quickly assess key statistics about data in a database table. When I say ''statistics'' I mean things like column value and length distribution, column null ratio, column patterns, and functional dependencies. You ...

  • Microsoft Business Intelligence Conference 2007 website live

    The Microsoft Business Intelligence Conference 2007 website is now live. The conference is scheduled on May 9-11, 2007, in Seattle, WA. It's not a ''traditional'' Microsoft technical conference like TechEd and PDC: it's targeted more on project managers, decision makers, IT manager... and, yes, also IT professionals, but this indicates to me that ...
