Microsoft Tech Boot Camp 2009: Business Intelligence Highlights

I had a fun time presenting on 'Business Intelligence with SQL Server 2008' at the Microsoft Tech Boot Camp 2009. The number of attendees was larger than I expected but the interaction during the session and the few comments that I got after the session made me feel that the presentation had a positive impact on them. I think that the information made people aware of the power of SQL Server and highlighted some of the advantages of using the components of SQL Server 2008.
As for the demos that I did, I learned them from videos that you can find at the following links:
SSIS Demo - Creating a Basic Package
SSRS Demo - Create a Basic Table Report with a Wizard

If you were at the session please feel free to leave feedback about the presentation. Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Welcome: My First Post

My name is Nigel Sammy and I would like to welcome you to my blog, SQL Server: A DB Professional's Best Friend. In my company I deal with many database tasks such as administration, development, BI, consultation etc and I have created this blog to share the cool SQL Server and technical information that I encounter in my DB adventures.

Feel free to leave comments and questions and please do enjoy.
