Utility Control Point - The SQL Server Utility Control Point is a new feature included with SQL Server 2008 R2. The Utility Control Point centrally monitors instances of SQL Server as it collects configuration and performance information every 15 minutes from managed instances of SQL Server. Once data is collected from the managed instances, the SQL Server Utility dashboard and viewpoints in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) can be used to gain insight into the performance and resource utilization of SQL Server computers, instances and databases you plan on virtualizing, as illustrated in Figure 3. The dashboard yields information about: Instance CPU Utilization, Database Files Utilization, Storage Volumes Utilization and Computer CPU Utilization. With its ability to identify underutilized resources, the Utility Control Point also doubles as a tool for identifying consolidation opportunities. For more information on the Utility Control Point, view the following link: (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee210548(v=SQL.105).aspx).
Master Data Services is comprised of a database, configuration tool, Web application, and Web service that you use to manage your organization's master data and maintain an auditable record of that data as it changes over time. You use models and hierarchies to group and organize data to prepare it for further use in business intelligence and reporting tools, data warehouses, and other operational systems. Master Data Services integrates with source systems and incorporates business rules to become the single source of master data across your organization.

Shared datasets: A shared dataset lets you define a query once and then reuse it many times in different reports. You can also configure a cache refresh for the dataset in lieu of scheduling a subscription by using the NULL delivery provider to warm up the cache. If the report has parameters, you must specify the default value for each parameter. If you want to warm the cache for various combinations of parameters, just configure another cache refresh plan for each combination.Report parts: You can publish selected data regions as separate components that other report developers can use to jump-start reports and to maintain consistency in design. Report developers can locate the available report parts in the Report Part Gallery, a new feature exclusive to Report Builder 3.0.ATOM data feeds: Reporting Services 2008 R2 includes a new rendering extension to support exporting report data to an ATOM service document. An ATOM service document can be used by any application that consumes data feeds. In particular, the data feeds in Reporting Services are intended for Microsoft PowerPivot, but you can use this feature to meet other requirements where you need to provide raw data via a feed.
Reusing common report elements helps to accelerate report creation, cut down costs, and increase end-user adoption. SharePoint provides the central location for sharing and editing reports and automatically synchronizes published content objects.
Data bars: A data bar is a special type of chart that shows a single data point as a horizontal bar or as a vertical column. The length of each bar lets you visually assess whether a group is closer to the minimum or the maximum or some ratio between.Sparklines: Whereas a data bar usually shows a single point, a sparkline shows multiple data points over time to make it easier to spot trends. A sparkline shows whether the measurement is trending up or trending down and the amount of fluctuation during the represented time period. Indicators: You can now add indicators to a report, choosing indicator icons from built-in sets, customizing these sets to change properties such as the color or size of an indicator icon, or even creating your own icons. Maps: You can create many different types of maps in Reporting Services. A wizard gets you started by prompting you for the map you want to use, a shapefile, or spatial data. You can also include analytical data with your map to represent points or areas, using different colors or markers to illustrate the differences between the locations.
