DataMinds 2018

DATA Scotland 2022

by ErwinMar 30, 2022

An event in the Footbal Arena from Gent!

Two days after SQLSatholland it was time for DataMinds Connects, which was held in beautiful Belgian Ghent. The location for this event was in the stadium of KAA Gent.
Because the organization of SQLSatHolland and DataMinds worked well together, top speakers where present again.

Great event for Speakers
Nice detail, the speaker room was in the Presidential SkyBox with a very nice view in the Stadium.
And every speaker had his own football shirt.During this event I talked about Migrating your On Premise database to Azure SQL Data Warehouse
 
 
Migrate to Azure SQL DataWareHouse
Have you ever tried to migrate your DataWareHouse (DataVault) solution to a Azure SQL DataWareHouse? Azure SQL DW is a MPP system and requires a lot of changes to your current solution.What are the best practices for Migrate your solution? Why should you migrate to a Azure SQL DW? I did, and would like to share my experience. During the session I spoke about Distribution keys, Replicated Tables, identity Colums, CTAS, scaling, pausing, monitoring and much more.
Great Feedback
The session was well attended and the feedback was very good afterwards. I’m enjoying every time again to share my knowledge with the Community. Speaking at events always gives me a lot of energy.
Organisation
Compliments to the organizers Benni, Stijn and Frederik

Maintenance and Service Healths in Azure

Do you want know how to setup up these Service Health Alerts? Please click on the link below.

Creating Service Health Alerts in Azure

Azure Portal
In the Azure Portal go to Monitor – Service Health – Health alerts

If you have created alerts before you will see them over here. Assuming you haven’t created an Alert before, we will start to create an Alert.

1 Define Alert Condition:

Select the correction Subscription
Select the Azure Services where you want to get an Alert for
Select the Azure Region
And for this Alert Condition we will select only the Service issue as the Event Type.

2 Define Alert Details

Define Alert Rule name CustomerName – Service Issue Alert
Define Description
Select the Resource Group where you want to save this Alert. I’ve created a seperate Resource Group where I store everything which is related to Monitoring of my Azure Environment.

3 Define Action Group
The last step of the alert Creation is to setup how we want to notify people. I the example below I will care take about the  Action Group Type Email/SMS/Push/Voice

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Fill in your email address
 
 
 
 
 
Fill in your email address and make your sure you install the Micrsosoft Azure app on your phone to receive push messages.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
You also have the possibility to define multiple Action Groups.
Next time I will write how to change your Action Group to add or remove Members.
Thanks so much for reading through this article today, and I hope you all take some time to try it out. It’s will make your life easier.

LEAP 2018

DATA Scotland 2022

by ErwinMar 30, 2022

Lead Enterprise Architect Program

From the 4th of December until the 6th of December I’ve joined the LEAP (Lead Enterprise Architect Program) 2018 Data/AI from Microsoft NL.
Three  days on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond joining business and technical sessions from a diversity of speakers and Program Managers.
 

Amsterdam Seattle
After a long flight of 11 hours from Amsterdam to Seattle, we arrived around 13:00 on Sunday December 2nd. Since we have also gone back 9 hours, it is important to stay awake for as long as possible. So that we have less trouble with our Jetlag the following days(hopefully).
Jetlag
Fortunately we have one day of rest before Leap starts on Tuesday. The Monday we spend in Seattle. Starting the day with a nice breakfast at Pike Place.
After breakfast we went for a long walk trough downtown Seattle. In the afternoon we did a Locks tour by boat. A wonderful activity to get through your jetlag with a great view from Seattle. In the evening we end up in the Pike Brewery where we have met more Leap participants.
Finally it is Tuesday, Start of LEAP
After I have seen almost every hour on the clock during the night, I woke up early. The bus was leaving the hotel at 7:15 to the Microsoft Campus in Redmond where we were expected in the EBC (Executive Briefing Center) for breakfast.
Business – Technical
In the morning we have tracks with the whole group, in the afternoon we split up in Business and Technical tracks. The first day is dedicated to various sessions about Azure, DevOps and Digital Transformation for Partners. In the afternoon I have followed the technical sessions where we talked about DevOps, DataBricks and DataLake. Super cool to see how open all Program Managers are. All sessions are dedicated to questions that we have and which were all answered well. We ended the day with a group dinner.
Day 2
Day 2 is kicked off by Rohan Kunar, CVP Azure Data, followed by a session on AI and Serverless Architecture. In the afternoon we talked this time about IOT and Machine Learning. We closed the evening with dinner in a Brazilian Restaurant, the atmosphere was great and some participants will remember this evening for the time being.
What happened in Seattle stays in Seattle!
3 Wonderful days are coming to an end
The last day we started with a White Board session of the Distinguished Architect of Microsoft, a beautiful session in which many topics about the use and the future of data.We closed the morning with a Technical session about the Power Platform.
Seattle by Night
After a few hours of rest, yes the jet lag still works, we finalized the day in Seattle with some other participants with a drink at the Taphouse Grill, if you are in Seattle, a must to visit, they have more than 150 beers on tap. For dinner we end up in the CheeseCake Factory.
I had 3 top days, thanks for the organization and the super nice program. Personally, I got a lot of energy out of these days and good to see that we are on the right track as Axians.
See you next time.
