"Row-Level-Security in SQL Server 2016 – What’s it all about?"

Rune Ovlien, Database specialist Evry

In this session we will introduce to you the new SQL Server 2016 feature Row-Level-Security (RLS) and give you a glimpse of the possibilities. We will explain what’s different, how it is constructed and works, demo a few use cases and cover RLS caveats and recommended best practices.

About Rune:

"How to load your data faster and safer using Change Tracking in SQL Server"

Antonio Abalos Castillo , Manager Avanade

Loading data into a data warehouse or a reporting database is maybe the most common task for BI professionals, something we do since the beginning. It can start very simple, but get as complicated as one can imagine. Since SQL Server 2008, Microsoft has given us the tools to follow a structured approach for loading data. Join the session to see an introduction to Change Tracking and a demo on the data loading possibilities it has to offer.

Johnny Dahlberg , Sr. Systems Engineer Purestorage
