Posted by denglishbi on March 4, 2011

The next Minnesota SQL Server User Group (PASSMN) meeting is coming up in a couple of weeks.  The topic will be about SQL Azure and will also touch on the CTP of SQL Azure Reporting.

The sponsor for this meeting is Magenic:


“SQL Azure – Relational Data in the Cloud


  • 2:45-3:00 : Registration / hospitality / networking
  • 3:00-3:15 : Announcements etc.
  • 3:15-4:45 : Steve Hughes: SQL Azure – Relational Data in the Cloud
  • 4:45-5:00 : Closing comments/prize giveaways


SQL Azure – Relational Data in the Cloud (Steve Hughes, Magenic) – This session will review SQL Azure capabilities and tools. We want to look at what we can do on the platform and what may be some shortcomings of the platform at this point. We will take time to evaluate what place SQL Azure has within our data environments and some viable use cases for using it. Finally, we will crack open the SQL Azure Reporting CTP to get a “first look” at this latest offering from Microsoft.
