Today’s keynote was by David Dewitt. He did an excellent job explaining the architecture behind various Cloud Data Warehouse offerings. It was nice to get an explanation of the behind the scenes node and disk usage.
One announcement that caught me off guard was next year’s Summit is Oct 31 thru Nov 3. That is Halloween and my kids come first on that day. Not sure that was a good idea. Better information shared was an increase in revenue of 10%, plus 100%+ increase in Global membership in some areas. There is a new logo and the updated website will be released early next year. Denise provided some slides on what the website will look like including mobile friendly.
Next, I am going to meet up with Bill and attend a session on Azure DW.
