Welcome to the CBIG site!
The Charlotte BI Group, or CBIG as we like to call ourselves, is a technical user group focused on Business Intelligence topics.
As a member, you will learn about Business Intelligence best practices, recommended architectures, design patterns, development platforms and techniques, as well as administration and configuration topics with an emphasis on the Microsoft BI stack and related toolsets. From time to time we'll also cover other important BI skills such as business analysis, requirements gathering methodologies, usability, and testing.
Our meetings will approach learning in a casual, fun and social way. You'll be given opportunities to get to know fellow BI, SQL Server, and Analyst professionals in the area. We'll also do our best to keep you informed about regional events & happenings in the technical community.

Abstract: PowerShell is always something you heard about and wanted to use but never did! Starting with the resources available for a PowerShell newbie, we will advance to what pro's use to automate their database activities and beyond, for both DBA's and developers. The goal of this session is to get you immersed in PowerShell. Ask questions and learn how PowerShell can enable you and more importantly do your job for you (the way, future is heading). We will also look at free libraries and tools to help you advance your automation abilities. Common automation scenarios is the theme! Anything done with clicks can be automated.
