Sunday, February 13, 2011 10:14:00 PM Categories: Meeting


Do you have a Zombie Database? Does your database suffer from roaming hordes of problems like the lack of primary and foreign keys, poor normalization, in place updates and deletes,  and an insatiable drive to eat your braaaaaaaaaaaaaains (CPU cycles).


Fear not fellow survivor, for I’ll show you how to control the zombie apocalypse and prepare your data for use with PowerPivot, a free add on for Excel 2010. I’ll show you how to use PowerPivot to slice and dice your data and keep your users safe from the zombie databases which threaten their very way of life. 



David Stein is a SQL Server Business Intelligence DBA specializing in designing, developing, and maintaining Data Warehouses using Microsoft BI Tools. He also has the distinction of being the world's foremost expert with one of the worst Zombie Databases known to man.



Oh my! Zombie movies are a guilty pleasure for me. I may well have to break out the zombie brain Jello molds!

See you there.
