  • Session AbstractDEVCT308 - Developing with SQL Azure: Tools & Frameworks In ActionThis session will be jam-packed with hands-on demonstrations lighting up SQL Azure with new and existing applications. We'll start with the steps to creating a SQL Azure account and database, then walk through the tools to connect to it. Then we'll open Visual Studio to connect to .NET applications with Entity Framework, OData, and SQL Server Tools Codename "Juneau".Track Name, Acronym and Track PMBusiness Intelligence (BIN) – Peter SpragueBusiness Solutions (MSDY) - Pattie Grimm, Scarlet LeungDatabase (DB) –Dandy Weyn, Kevin Ashby, Maxine CooDevelopment Tools & Technologies (DEV) – Bijan JavidiCross Track CoverageApplication Platform – APS/DB/AZR/ARC Solution Accelerators – Michelle Arney, Michelle Walls Compete – Mike Brevard Trustworthy Computing – Christopher Pelletier Next Web – Olga Londer User Experience – Alison ClarkPrivate Cloud – Aurora Santiago Windows Embedded – Olivier Bloch

  • Those scenarios can be addressed using Microsoft SQL Azure reporting to extend BI reporting services to the cloud. Here you can see that report developers can use familiar reporting tools such as BIDS and Report Builder to create reports and publish them through the firewall to a SQL Azure Reporting repository in the cloud. The data in the reports could reside either in SQL Azure, Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket or come via an OData data feed. End users from outside and within the firewall can then access these reports either through a line-of-business application or through their web browser.Reports can be consumed via the SQL Azure Reporting Portal or they can be embedded in LOB Applications hosted on premises or on the Windows Azure PlatformLet’s now revisit those key scenarios to show how SQL Azure Reporting can address them.
  • Open up new possibilities and opportunities for your business with SARQuickstart: Gain rapid time-to-market and minimize risk by enabling rapid start departmental or sandbox reporting solutions using SAR. Get up and running a days versus months.Seasonal: Cost effectively handle seasonal reporting needs. No need to over-invest in excess IT capacity on premises. Use what capacity you need when you need it to optimize your costsExtended: Increase collaboration and share insights with suppliers by sharing relevant information in the cloud that suppliers can report againstHybrid: Put some of your data in the cloud while keeping other information on-premises, and report against both
  • Per the SQL Azure team blog“We will be making updates to SQL Azure over the next few months, to ensure uninterrupted connectivity to SQL Azure using SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 please install SP1”
  • From MSDN documentation – also ‘supported’ objects ( following changes have been made for data-tier applications (DACs) in CTP3:The data-tier application (DAC) upgrade has been changed to an in-place process that alters the existing database to match the schema defined in the new version of the DAC. This replaces the side-by-side upgrade process, which created a new database with the new schema definitions. The Upgrade a Data-Tier Application wizard has been updated to perform an in-place upgrade. The Upgrade method of the DacStore type is now deprecated, and replaced with a new IncrementalUpgrademethod. Upgrades are also supported for DACs deployed to SQL Azure. For more information, see Upgrade a Data-tier Application.In addition to just extracting a schema definition as a new DAC package file, you can now export both the schema definition and data from a database as a DAC export file. You can then import the file to create a new database with the same schema and data. For more information, see Export a Data-tier Application and Import a Data-tier Application.Data-tier applications now support many more objects than in SQL Server 2008 R2. For more information, see DAC Support For SQL Server Objects and Versions.

(add FK)· Develop SQL Server views and other database objects using T-SQL code. · Synchronize a SQL Server database project with a SQL Server database using SSDT’s Schema Compare feature. Leverage SSDT’s code productivity features for refactoring, Find All References, and Go To Definition. · Use a SSDT project to create SQL Server database objects. · Debug/test database projects using SSDT’s Local DB feature.

  • notable new features:¦The Server Explorer in Juneau now provides you with an SSMS-like view of your database objects¦The ability to analyze a set of changes and generate a script that will then update the database based on those changes in the development environment¦Preview database updates – The commit operation will provide a deployment report, which contains a preview of all the actions it is going to take, together with potential issues it has identified¦Improved intellisense¦Ships with a single-user lightweight SQL Server version to help with debugging¦Refactor table names, field names, etc, without losing data¦Debug stored procedures¦Can target different versions of SQL Server, including Azure¦Can take a snapshot of the project. Allows you to have versions of your database. Can track history of changes over time¦Can compare your project to the current state of the database. So you can see, for example, indexes added to the live database and add those index changes to your project. Can do things like a schema compare between two versions: a developer can start with a snapshot, make changes, then send the differences to the dba to implement; ISV’s can track databases it has sent to customers and send them scripts to update their database¦On the horizon: reference data support (storing data with the schema), database diagrams, query designer¦Any errors caused by editing in either the TSQL Editor or Table Designer immediately show up in the Error List pane, and are platform specific¦You can now add SQLCLR objects directly to the same database project that is opened, without resorting to opening a specific SQLCLR project. Your TSQL stored procedures can interact with your SQLCLR objects within the same project. Debugging and deployment can also happen seamlessly¦Coding support that includes: Go To Definition and Find All References; the Refactor contextual menu which enables you to rename or move an object and do a preview of all affected areas before committing to the change¦You can create an ADO.NET Entity Data Model and choose to have the model contents generated from an existing database project. Fine-grained synchronization control settings are provided to enable you to specify how changes are propagated between the entity data model and the database project

    • 20. Cloud BI Value Scenarios
      QuickStart, Departmental, Sandbox BI
      Seasonal processing
      Hybrid deployments
      Extended Enterprise
      Average Usage
      Businesses need to share insights from data generated by internal systems with external partners including supply chain partners
      Departments, groups or small businesses need reporting but don’t have the resources for procuring hardware and software licenses, installing, configuring and managing the system
      Businesses need the flexibility to pick the right deployment option to address specific requirements including maintaining sensitive data on premises while extending access.
      Businesses with seasonality or fluctuating capacity over time cannot easily plan for maximum capacity – which will be idle a large % of the time.
