  • Mobile Business Intelligence and the chocolate cake problem.
  • Question to the Audience: why not just show tables?Property Value Mean of x in each case 9 (exact) Variance of x in each case 11 (exact) Mean of y in each case 7.50 (to 2 decimal places) Variance of y in each case 4.122 or 4.127 (to 3 decimal places) Correlation between x and y in each case 0.816 (to 3 decimal places) Linear regression line in each case (to 2 and 3 decimal places, respectively)TL – normal distributionTR – not distributed normally, not linearBL – linear, outlier exerts an influenceBR – non linear, outlier is enough to produce a high correlation coefficient
  • Automatically and simultaneously for the whole entire visual field of view."Who would believe that so small a space could contain the images of all the universe? O mighty process!" - Leonardo Da VinciPre-Attentive attributes of visual perception are pre-conscious (Colin Ware)Make use of the pre-attentive attributes of visual perception to make reports clearer; take advantage of these pre-conscious attributes so that users do not have to work so hard to understand the reportIn 2D position, we assume that higher is greater.
  • In 2D position, we assume that higher is greater.

  • Small businesses are using mobile as an opportunity to make use of efficiency gains and productivity
  • External factors driving Mobile BI adoption: Consumerization of IT, device maturity, user expectations and constant connectivityInternal drivers: Increasing productivity, improving data delivery and real-time reporting and analytics
  • Self-service business intelligence has some barriers to adoption, and these will also impact mobile business intelligence too.SQL Server 2012 can help enable your business: further, forward, faster. Business Puzzles versus Business Mysteries.Database Trends and Applications, only about 15% of users get their reports within a day of the initial request.Most left waiting three days.
  • Access external sources and integrate those sources regardless of their origin or format – this would allow us to integrate historical data with data that comes in on a day-today basis• Move easily from summarized views to more detailed views• Change summarizations on the fly• Work with large volumes of data, allow users to share this information and support individual users’ personalization of DataAllow IT to manage data in a way that guards against unlimited user access but does not impede the flow of data inward – this would ensure the implementation and maintenance of repeatable processes• Update, secure and store data while ensuring it remains readily accessible• Provide solutions that not only can be used by business users, but are also demanded by business users• Remove the dependence on spreadsheets and provide a modern approach to data access and summarization• Create repeatable, accurate processes that result in time savings and operational efficiencies while delivering actionable insights
  • Significant milestone December 2011 CU “feature pack” for mobile BI http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh697482.aspx
  • Empowers business users to create, interactive self-service data mash ups from a variety of data sources.PowerPivot can handle tens of millionsof rows with world-class data compression technology
  • Next version is much improved for BI use casesHierarchies / Parent Child dimensionsMultiple table relationshipsRole playing dimensionsDate type table and better Time IntelligenceKPIsDAX server queries and language improvementsRank, Top N, Switch and moreMany to many optimizations via DAXUsability EnhancementsMuch needed relationship diagrams designerDevelopment life-cycle graduation featuresAnalyst > Power User > BI DeveloperRestore Excel PowerPivot to BISM Server ModelPerspectives. With the Advanced Mode’s Perspectives feature, you can add, edit, delete, copy, and view perspectives. Perspectives are metadata layers that track different slices or sets of data. Perspectives are typically defined for a particular user group or business scenario and make it easier to navigate large data sets.Show DetailsDiagram View
  • A SQL Azure server is a logical group of databases and acts as a central administrative point for multiple databases. Each SQL Azure server includes logins similar to those in instances of SQL Server on your premises. Each SQL Azure server has a fully qualified unique domain name, which is produced during the SQL Azure server provisioning process. In the following example, servername refers to the name of the SQL Azure server:servername.database.windows.net Each SQL Azure server can contain multiple databases. In order to create a new database, you can either use: - the Management portal or - the CREATE DATABASE (SQL Azure Database) statement.In each database, you can create tables, views, indices, stored procedures, etc.The provisioning process creates a read-only master database automatically. The master database: - keeps track of which logins have permission to create databases or other logins. (You must be connected to the master database whenever you CREATE, ALTER, or DROP logins or databases.) - The master database also provides SQL Azure usage metrics that you can view.

  • - Windows Authentication will not work. You will need to use SQL Authentication, along with your user name and password. - It isn’t possible to connect via SSMS via the normal initial ‘Database Connection’ window. Instead, you need to ‘cancel’ out of that window and click on ‘New Query’, which brings up a ‘Connect to Server’ window. Creating a table in your Azure database is very similar to creating a table in an on-premise SQL Server. However, there is one main difference; the Azure table must have a clustered index on the table because of the replication technology.The Azure data is written to one primary and two secondary replicas, and the data is the same across all three replicas. A table which doesn’t have a clustered index is basically a heap, which means that the data rows and pages aren’t ordered. The replication technology requires that the data pages and rows are ordered so that it is faster and easier to assess if the data has been written across all three replicas: it is this point at which the data is considered to be committed.
  • The connection to SQL needs to be ‘.Net Providers\\SqlClient Data Provider’.Use SQL Server Authentication in order to gain access to the SQL Azure database.
  • It is possible to use SQL Azure as a source for the Reporting Services. There are two main differences:The data source should be explicitly specified as ‘Microsoft SQL Azure’.For security, it is not possible to use Windows Authentication; SQL Authentication must be used
