SQL Server on Linux: A Modern Data Platform

Digital transformation depends on complementary architectures and integrated solutions. Organizations must be open to adopt platforms that increase flexibility and provide a unified experience across multiple workloads and modalities. While we may need to embrace fit for purpose analytics solutions, SUSE creates the opportunity to consolidate the platform for a diverse portfolio of data solutions on SUSE Linux. In this first of a series of 4 webinars, SUSE will be speaking alongside Microsoft about SQL Server. In this session, we’ll be discussing SQL Server 2017 on SUSE Linux, the roadmap for SQL Server 2019 and how SUSE Linux enables enhanced SQL Server capabilities in future versions. The speakers will be available for question and answer at the conclusion of the presentation content.
