Last Monday, November 5, was the Cobb Chamber's First Monday Breakfast, recognizing Teachers of the Year from the Cobb County and Marietta school districts. The Ed Voyles dealerships presented each teacher with a 1-year lease on a new vehicle - the Chrysler 200 convertible is a very attractive vehicle.

On November 1, the TAG BI/EPM Society met at Maggiano's at Perimeter for a breakfast panel discussion on Business Intelligence Trends for 2013, which include Mobile, Security, Privacy, Ad Hoc and Self-Serve BI, Risk Management, and Agility. There was a lot of discussion of the role of "tool" vendors, who make products for the Business Intelligence space, and Data Management/Data Governance - one panelist noted the risk of "Garbage In, Gospel Out". There was an interesting tangent on Big Data trends, with the consensus being that eventually Big Data will just be Data - we're just not there yet in terms of Data Governance, skill sets, and toolkits.

A key observation: in the past, the issue was "Can we obtain the data we need to analyze a particular domain?". In the future (maybe today), the question will be "Can we ask the right questions, because we can get all the data we need to find the answer?".

Yesterday was another installment of the "24 Hours of PASS". PASS is the Professional Association of SQL Server <<insert non-redundant word here>>. PASS charters user chapters around the country, and holds an annual summit which is widely viewed as the best value in SQL Server training, with lots of participation from Microsoft's SQL Server development team and Microsoft's MVPs. Every year, prior to the summit, they offer 24 hours of webinars to preview some of the summit sessions. I had the opportunity to listen to part of the session on SSIS design patterns, presented by Jessica Moss and Michelle Ufford and also Louis Davidson's talk on "Characteristics of a Great Relational Database". Based on where Louis set the bar, I've got some work to do on my clients' databases.

About 2 months ago, I started a Google+ page for my business - Flamm Consulting - this page, in fact. My intent is to document most of the professional/technical events that I participate in, but I did not do a great job of staying current in October. Herewith, a remedy:
Oct. 8 - Atlanta MDF (Microsoft Database Forum) - Using XML in SQL Server - some particularly good tips on using SQL Server's XML commands to manipulate text lists
Oct. 11-12 - Digital Atlanta conference at Atlantic Station - I spent 5 or 6 hours as a volunteer at registration, and attended an excellent presentation on User Experience with Cliff Seal (@cliffseal) of Pardot (which had just been acquired by ExactTarget). Rachel Ezzo from Kate's Club shared some insight on effective digital "friendraising" - she recommended Beth Kanter's website http://www.bethkanter.org/ as a resource. 
Oct. 16 - East Cobb Business Association monthly luncheon with Linda Zuk from FocusFive Consulting - Dealing with Difficult Conversations.
Oct. 17 - Stanford Parent lunch with Dr. Harry Elam - Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education - creating the future of higher education through experimentation
Oct. 19  - Working on the website for an International Networking Week event in Atlanta (ReferralAtlanta.com).
Oct. 22 - Atlanta .Net User Group hosting the .Net Rocks Windows 8 Launch Tour - building Windows 8 Apps in less than 1 hour!
Oct. 23 - ECBA After Hours at Red Sky Tapas
Oct. 29 - Atlanta Microsoft Business Intelligence Users Group - Microsoft's Approach to Big Data - there is now a front-end service for Windows Server 2012 called HDInsight to provide access to Hadoop processing using C#. Good presentation on the definition of Big Data - Volume, Variety, Velocity, Variability (credit IBM Consulting).
Oct. 30 - ECBA Breakfast at Marlow's at Merchant Walk - CCSD Superintendent Dr. Hinojosa was the featured speaker.
Oct. 31 - Presenter for the Coalition of Cobb County Business Associations 2d annual Business Association Leadership Training seminar. 4 presenters and 17 or 18 "students" hosted at the Cobb Chamber for about 6 hours of instruction and sharing.
