This month’s meeting was sponsored by X-IO. Good demo of an interesting product that delivers very high performance. It would be good to see a full presentation in the future.
The speaker for this month was Aneel Ismaily presenting “Building a Custom ETL Framework with SSIS 2012”. A quick poll showed a surprisingly high number of people in the audience are still running 2008 versus 2012. Good overview of 2012 logging features and comparison with 2008. Lots of links to samples in the slides and some detail about specific tables. The presentation was well done and included some good comments and questions afterwards from the audience.
A quick raffle for the vendor giveaways following the presentation and we’re done. Like most meetings, it seems like there is more networking/discussion after the meeting than before. Good turnout for the meeting, especially considering many people are out of town for spring break.
