  • Purpose of the slideExplain that SQL Server 2008 R2 covers the entire BI continuum by extending the reach of the technologies from organizational BI through team and personal BI. Key Points: SQL Server 2008 R2 includes all the technologies and tools necessary to create and deliver BI solutions that are centrally developed and maintained by ITFor team BI solutions, SQL Server 2008 R2 integrates seamlessly with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, both through Reporting Services in integrated mode and PowerPivot/Analysis Services for SharePointSQL Server PowerPivot for Excel 2010 is the key enabler for personal BI and in conjunction with SQL Server 2008 R2 and SharePoint Server 2010, PowerPivot provides the foundation for managed self-service BI offeringsConclusion: In order to cover the entire BI continuum, customers should use SQL Server 2008 R2, SharePoint Server 2010, and SQL Server PowerPivot.
  • Purpose of the slideHere is the solution, show some detail on how we think of the BI architecture in 3 main layers. Point out that self-service analysis takes place in Office and SharePoint, but the Business Intelligence Platform is there to take popular user-generated solutions and convert them into full organizational solutions.Key Points: A trusted BI platform is critical for a business intelligence solution to work today. If we’re going to achieve the promise of BI, we need to have the confidence and trust in the data, we need to know where it came from, and that it is both timely and reliable for us to use to make a decision. That’s where the power of an integrated BI platform like SQL Server comes into play.Once you have the data ready to use, the middle tier comes into play, where business users actually interact with the data and turn it into something that is useful to them to make the right decision. The numbers that we pull from other systems are just that—we need applications and content to turn them into actionable items—and that’s where the middle tier comes into play. Finally, we need the right tools and applications to ensure that we can use that data in the way we want to in order to make our decisions. Applications and tools that range from personal, to team, to organizational and corporate tools, all with a familiar look and feel, all integrated and working with my Operating system, email, Internet search function. And this is what the power of integration through Microsoft Office brings you. From the Office productivity tools like Excel, through to the team and collaboration tools of SharePoint. By integrating BI seamlessly into a broader business productivity suite that includes search, collaboration, unified communications, and content management, we offer the end user a much richer experience.Conclusion: Our better together (Microsoft BI) story is real!

  • Purpose of the slideEmphasize that SQL Server 2008 R2 goes beyond the delivery of OLAP solutions to help organizations unlock their data, deliver relevant information, and drive actionable insights.Key Points: Greater infrastructure flexibilityand more users per server than with SQL Server 2005Optimized cube processingFaster query execution in the vast majority of the MDX functions and better code qualitySubspace computation improvements open new tuning and optimization possibilitiesRead-only databasesEnhanced monitoring capabilitiesImproved Analysis Services database backupsConclusion: SQL Server Analysis Services features cover all aspects of the Solution Development Live Cycle (SDLC)
  • Purpose of the slideExplain in more detail how organizations can take advantage of Analysis Services to design scalable organizational BI solutions. Key Points: Productivity also include: Visual development environmentSingle tool, multiple technologiesInfrastructure also include:Backup performanceGlobal scalability (translations)Parallel partition processingSuperior Performance: Real-time data access Centralized server calculations Automatic synchronizationConclusion: SQL Server Analysis Services includes a large number of features and tools to help developers create and deliver scalable high-quality BI solutions.
  • Purpose of the Slide: Introduce PowerPivot for Excel 2010 as a data analysis tool that delivers unmatched computational power directly within Microsoft Excel.Key Points: Leveraging familiar Excel features, users can transform enormous quantities of data with incredible speed into meaningful information to get the answers they need in secondsExcel-based in-memory analysis overcomes existing limitations for massive data analysis on the desktop with efficient compression algorithms to load even the biggest data sets into memory.Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) puts powerful relational capabilities into the hands of power users who want to create advanced analytics applications.SharePoint integration enables users to share data models and analysis, and because the solutions are in SharePoint, users can configure refresh cycles to ensure the data remains current automatically.Virtually unlimited support of data sources provides the foundation to load and combine source data from any location for massive data analysis on the desktop, including relational databases, multidimensional sources, cloud services, data feeds, Excel files, text files, and data from the Web.PowerPivot Management Dashboard enables IT administrators to monitor and manage shared applications to ensure security, high availability, and performance.Conclusion: Microsoft SQL Server PowerPivot technology empowers users to get the answers they need, gain deeper insight into any business aspect, and compress decision cycles.
