Here are the slides from my session SSIS Field Notes presented at SQLBits 7 in York earlier this month - SSIS Field Notes – Darren Green.pptx On a similar theme, the video of my session Design patterns for SSIS Performance from is now available. You heard it here first! I know that this because I’ve only just finished updating the SQLBits site with all the videos from SQLBits 6. Hopefully we’ll get them released quicker for SQLBits 7.

Using the Trace Management objects API it is possible to capture the events happening on SQL Server or indeed Analysis Services. I got to thinking that this would be a good thing to stream out in real time in StreamInsight and do some analysis “In Flight”. So here is a short video of me doing just that. Your browser cannot play this video. Learn how to fix this.

I recently gave a live meeting presentation to the UK User Group on Integrating Data Mining into your BI Solution. In it I talk about and demo ways of using your data mining models inside Integration Services, Analysis Services and Reporting Services. This is the first in a series of presentations I will be doing for the UG as I try to get the word out that Data Mining can be for the masses. You can download my deck and my line meeting recording from here.

Here are the slides/Spreadsheets and queries I ran in my UK User Group presentation. I talked about how the algorithms in SQL Server 2008 (ARTxp and ARIMA) work and what the effects of changing some of the attributes are on predictions.
It was a great night and I got some good feedback.
Hope you enjoy

Back in September we ad our community conference SQLBits and MS were there filming. In addition to my presentation there are a load of other good ones. The whole of the BI track was filmed. I know this is off topic slightly but it well worth taking a look.
So head over there and see what there is.
