  • SQL Server 2012 PowerPivot• Builds upon V1 release in SQL Server 2008 R2• New administrative capabilities – Lots of bug fixes – Default allocation algorithm changed to health-based rather than round-robin – Manage the amount of database caching done on the app servers – Database caching cleanup (based on inactivity) – Disable data refresh jobs if they are constantly failing, or if they succeed but are not being viewed
  • SQL Server 2012 PowerPivot• A new setup experience – Rather than installing and configuring SharePoint directly, setup now just lays down the bits and there is a new standalone configuration wizard• Capabilities: – Wizard has both a one-click “GO” option as well as a step-by-step experience – Existing farm steps integrated with the wizard – Individual steps can be scripted – History is directly integrated into the tool – Able to uninstall, upgrade, repair and patch separately
  • SQL Server Denali PowerPivot• Important note: SharePoint SP1 is required – SQL Setup will issue a warning if SharePoint SP1 has not been installed when the PowerPivot bits are laid down. This gives you some time to upgrade to SP SP1. – However, if you still haven’t upgraded to SP1, by the time you get to run the PowerPivot configuration wizard, we will throw a fatal error and you will be blocked from configuring your SharePoint farm until you upgrade to SP1.
  • DEMO• Some cool examples of PowerPivot in action.
  • Enabling PowerPivot & Power View
  • Issues using PowerPivot & OData Feeds Not on your local desktop!
  • Scaling out PowerPivot Installations• Installation at the App tier – Requires SQL Server media • Install SQL PowerPivot for SharePoint • Requires separate install of SSRS• Installation at the Web tier – Does not require SQL Server media • Reporting Services Add-in for SharePoint Products is shipped as a web downloadable add-in – http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?amp;a mp;displaylang=en&id=29068
  • Check your Loopback settings!
  • In the end, it’s all about perspective
