“Why should I use SQL Server?” SQL Server 2017 from the perspective of a data scientist

Speaker: Bart Van Der Vurst

Duration: 1 hour

SQL Server 2017 adds Python and Graph databases as data scientist toolkits embedded into SQL Server. These combined with the existing features of R Services and R Server make SQL Server a production-ready data scientist environment. In this talk, Bart & Breght make their assessment – as data scientists with limited SQL Server experience – on SQL Server as a data scientist tool. Naturally we’ll evaluate the link with AzureML, Azure HDInsights and CNTK, the open-source deep-learning toolkit from Microsoft.
