    Interviewer: Rajib Bahar, Shabnam Khan

    Agenda:

    RB - Your team created Adaptive Query Processing or QP. It is new in SQL Server 2017 and SQL Azure. As we know, SQL Server uses query plan internally to run tsql statements. Sometimes the plan chosen by the query optimizer is not optimal for reasons such as incorrect cardinal estimate and various other issues. What are some other pain points Adaptive QP is meant to cure?

    SB - Adapative QP's strength lies behind Batch mode memory grant feedback, Batch mode adaptive joins, Interleaved execution... How do they work internally?

    RB - What are steps to enabling QP and some best practices? Can you tell us what's in the pipe line for upcoming enhancement?

    SB - How do we connect with you on Social Media?

    Bill Inmon, Father of Datawarehouse discusses history & relevance of DW in age of Big Data

    Bill Inmon, Father of Datawarehouse discusses history & relevance of DW in age of Big Data

    Bill Inmon – the “father of data warehouse” – has written 57 books published in nine languages. Bill’s latest adventure is the building of technology known as textual disambiguation – technology that reads raw text in a narrative format and allows the text to be placed in a conventional data base so that it can be analyzed by standard analytical technology, thereby creating unique business value for Big Data/unstructured data. Bill was named by ComputerWorld as one of the ten most influential people in the history of the computer profession. Bill lives in Castle Rock, Colorado. For more information about textual disambiguation refer to www.forestrimtech.com.

    Interviewer: Rajib Bahar, Shabnam Khan

    Agenda:

    SB - In the 1970s, you have coined the term, "Datawarehouse". There are countless Data gurus referring to you as the father of "Datawarehousing". We are curious how did your journey start? What did you envision a "Datawarehouse" to be back then, and now?

    RB - Who were the earliest adopter? What were some interesting discoveries back then? How has the industry evolved?

    SB - In current state of the Data industry, do you think Datawarehousing is relevant in this hyped up age of Big Data and Data Science? Do these technologies simply compliment existing Data practices? What is your thought on it?

    RB- One of your project in the data space is called Textual ETL... What is it about? Is it a theoretical concept? Are there any tool in the industry that meets the standard?

    SB - Your recent publications are on Taxonomies, and Textual Analytics... Our knowledge on it is quite limited. Please enlighten us about the use case scenario for which it's relevant.

    RB - How do we connect with you in Social media such as Twitter or Blog?

I can see why students would love it... If they can predict the questions on the next test, it'll definitely add value in their academic career. On the other hand, Don't you think professor would hate this idea if they had to do additional homework on coming up with unique test each year? Won't that add risk to your venture? How did you go about critically analyzing all the risk and benefits? What's your vision behind it?

    RB - I understand you are working on a Data Vertical. How do you plan to achieve it? Is Cloud computing or Big Data involved in any way?
