From Data to Business Advantage – MS Dublin – June 18th, 2014

You are invited.
The extraordinary growth in the amounts, variety, and accessibility of data provides a new foundation for courageous, accurate, yet less risky, fast decision making.

What if your workforce and leaders no longer needed to rely solely on instincts when making complex choices? With business insights, provable with your own and external data – big, or small – you could empower employees with facts they would trust, and which should give them decisive confidence to improve performance and organisational growth.

To succeed, you need to balance agility and control – while at the same time making business analytics easy to access and share wherever your staff need to work. No one knows the modern office worker better than Microsoft. At the same time, no other company can give you the oversight of business intelligence demanded by corporate governance, and the manageability required by mission-critical IT.

Let us share and discuss with you the latest advancements in business analytics from Microsoft. While focusing on the overall BI platform, we will showcase the newest innovation, including Office 365, Power BI, Parallel Data Warehouse, SQL Server 2014, SharePoint, and even the cutting edge, advanced cloud-based big data analytics from Microsoft. Attend our seminar and turn data into your business advantage.

At this event you will have a unique opportunity to hear from Mr. Mark Patterson, Middleware Internet & Database Services Manager in AIB speak about why SQL Server is a key component of his Data Platform Strategy.
