Peter Myers:
Taking Your Application Design to the Next Level with Analysis Services Data Mining
    Peter MyersData mining as a technology supports the discovery of patterns and statistics not easily visible in relational database queries, and in many cases these patterns can be used to deliver predictions. These patterns can be used to derive knowledge about data, and in turn this knowledge can be used to enhance application designs and the user experience.In this presentation you will be introduced to Analysis Services 2005 and 2008 Data Mining and numerous demonstrations that show how to develop data mining models that can be embedded into your applications. Demonstrations will be based on Analysis Services 2008 Data Mining.
    This presentation is a must for any developer looking to embed “Artificial Intelligence” into their solution design to take their applications to the next level. It is designed to thrill you with potential, and excite you with the ease in which it can be accomplished. The demonstrations range from simple (involving no code!) to more sophisticated examples.This presentation is targeted at developers with an interest in data mining, and equally for non-developers interested to understand and evaluate what data mining could achieve for them. There is no requirement to have any background or experience with data mining technologies.

Peter Myers has 13 years’ solid experience working in OLTP database design and development, DBA support and Data Warehousing/Business Intelligence with SQL Server.

Specializing in Microsoft Business Intelligence, Peter provides mentoring, technical training and course content authoring for SQL Server and Office. Specifically he works with Integration Services, Analysis Services (cubes and data mining), Reporting Services, Excel, PowerPivot and PerformancePoint Services.

He has a broad business background supported by a bachelor degree in applied economics, and he extends this with current MCITP and MCT certifications. He has been an MVP since 2006.

Peter is an established presenter and enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for Microsoft technologies by presenting at user group meetings, technical events and conferences.
