  • 32. 10. Integrations Services (SSIS) Enhancements – lots of usability enhancements have been made such as ability to undo and redo, a new SSIS Toolbox,grouping capabilities in the data flow, simplified data viewer configurations, new data flow source and destination assistants (wizards), and improved dataflow designer experience with mapping and resolving errors. Other modifications were made so it is easier to compare and merge packages, and you havethe ability to view object dependencies in SQL Server Management Studio.9. Master Data Services (MDS) Enhancements – improvements in the user interface (UI), performance improvements with the UI, ability to incorporatedata quality services into the workflow process, and a new Excel add-in client that will provide the ability to edit Master Data and publish it back to MDS andeven create a model in Excel.8. New Feature: Data Quality Services (DQS) – this is a new product offering that has been added that allows you to create a knowledge base repositoryof data related items that can then be used to incorporate and use for data cleansing. This will allow you to profile, improve the quality, and monitor the on-going health of your data. This new feature can be added into your Integration Services and Master Data Services processes.7. New Feature: Database Columnstore Indexes – the VertiPaq engine first introduced with PowerPivot has now been brought to the database engineand is available to use to create indexes on columns in the relational store. This will provide a wonderful opportunity for users leveraging ROLAP technologyto great improve the performance on the query processing. This index groups and stores the data for each column versus the row. This can alleviate havingto use pre-aggregated data and summary tables.6. New Feature: Reporting Services (SSRS) Shared SharePoint Service – the SSRS integration with SharePoint will now be setup as a SharedSharePoint service just like Excel Services and PerformancePoint Services. Everything will be managed completely through SharePoint and there will nolonger be a separate SSRS Windows Service running.5. New Feature: Reporting Services (SSRS) Data Alerts – new self-service data-driven alerting capabilities have been added to allow end-users theability to setup and define alerts using existing Reporting Services reports. These alerts can be setup based on defined criteria and scheduled as needed toprovide a mechanism to notify the user without them having to manually execute the report on their own. This new feature is only provided in the SharePointIntegrated mode of Reporting Services.4. PowerPivot Enhancements – with version 2 of PowerPivot there have been some major additions which include features like a new diagram view of themodel, hierarchy and KPI support, ability to sort a column based on another column, multiple relationships (like role playing dimensions kind of – can accessthrough DAX), image support, add values to rows and columns (very cool – flexibility provided in the PivotTables), reporting properties (will be leveraged by‘Crescent’), ability to format measures, field list sorted alphabetically (instead of how they were added to the model), and most importantly…show details(drillthrough support – this will be fabulous when using with PerformancePoint).3. DAX Enhancements – new functions have been added to help simplify and provide additional capabilities like DISTINCTCOUNT, Rank, StandardDeviation, TOPN, table functions, LOOKUPVALUE, parent-child relationship functions, SWITCH, and more.2. New Feature: Analysis Services Tabular – the PowerPivot experience in Excel has also been added into the Business Intelligence Development Studio(BIDS) introducing a new Tabular project option. This will allow you to take the PowerPivot model and convert it to a Tabular project and deploy the solutionat the server level for a corporate/enterprise level solution that will scale and handle large volumes of data. With the Tabular models you will have the sameoptions as in PowerPivot along with additional capabilities like partitioning, incremental updates, and role based security.1. New Feature: Project ’Crescent’ – this is a brand new browser based Silverlight report authoring tool. This new tool will replace the Report Builder 1.0application that leveraged Report Models and will be able to leverage the Tabular BI Semantic Models (BISM) that you will be able to create with PowerPivotfor SharePoint and Analysis Services Tabular projects. This will be a highly interactive reporting experience that will allow you to access, explore, andvisualize your data and have fun doing so in the process. This tool will enhance the existing Microsoft BI toolset and provide a very friendly self-servicereporting solution for end-users to leverage. The new feature is only provided in the SharePoint Integrated mode of Reporting Services.
