Data Virtualisation - Unlock instant insights with Polybase and SQL Server

Data virtualisation is a technology and technique which is helping change the way that we look at integrating systems, performing ETL, and controlling access to data. With the introduction of Polybase into SQL Server 2019 this has now brought this capability for accessing external data sources to a much wider audience, but how can we use this and what do we need to know to get up and running?

Join me as we discuss the use-cases and deployment scenarios for a data virtualisation architecture using Polybase. I will also demonstrate how we can use Polybase to streamline, and simplify, the integration of Oracle Database, Hadoop, and MongoDB data sources into a single reporting database on SQL Server without a traditional ETL platform.
