  • Today’s organizations seek business intelligence information to drive efficient decision-making, better problem solving, and faster innovation to stay competitive. These are common themes from industry regarding pains felt by organizations when enabling BI solutions. How do you p rovide your users with a robust and secure self-service business intelligence (BI) infrastructure? As more users across your organization require the ability to transform massive quantities of data into meaningful information rapidly, PCs need unmatched computational power and security for rich analysis right on the desktop or laptop. Server systems need to deliver a level of performance that enables insight and answers within seconds from data stored in both internal and external locations.
  • Microsoft SQL Server PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel 2010 is a data analysis tool that enables IW Producers to go beyond the row limitations in Office Excel and analyze millions of rows of data retrieved from internal and external databases, create interactive reports, and share them with others using SharePoint 2010. These users will run the PowerPivot for Excel add-in to create Excel workbooks, aggregating data from web services, text files, relational and multidimensional databases, Reporting Services reports, and other worksheets. The new PowerPivot worksheets can then be uploaded to SharePoint Server 2010 and shared with other IW Producers who can download and manipulate the workbooks and with IW Consumers who can view and use the reports via their Web browser using Microsoft Excel 2010 without the PowerPivot add-in. The PowerPivot for Excel add-in includes a local processor optimized to handle millions of rows in memory using the processing power of commodity enterprise PCs.    Microsoft SQL Server PowerPivot for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 is a SQL Server 2008 R2 service that adds PowerPivot data processing to a SharePoint farm, much as Excel Services adds calculations and rendering to workbooks published to a SharePoint site. PowerPivot for SharePoint includes services, infrastructure, dashboards, Web parts, content types, and library templates needed for users to share  PowerPivot workbooks. To use it, IT runs SQL Server setup on an application server or Web front end, and then uses Central Administration to manage the feature across the SharePoint farm.
  • The typical flow of work is: IW Producer develops workbook application (using PowerPivot) and uploads it to the database server directly May collaborate with colleagues to refine the application prior to making it available to IW Consumers Once complete makes it available to colleagues IW Consumer accesses the shared workbook application through their Web browser Manipulates data using filters built into the workbook application by the IW Producer If data refresh is enabled each time they access the application the source data is updated with the most recent available, from both internal and external repositories Uses the results of the analysis to help make better business decisions
  • IW Producers can create Excel workbooks and aggregate data from almost any source including Web services, text files, relational and multidimensional databases, Reporting Services reports, and other worksheets. They can also publish PowerPivot workbooks to SharePoint Server 2010. IW Consumers can then access the published workbook applications through their Web browser, with almost the same performance and features as the Excel client.
  • To enable the benefits of PowerPivot, PCs need unmatched computational power and security for IW Producers to conduct rich analysis right on the desktop or laptop. The all new 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family offers a client platform with cost-saving, efficient maintenance features for producers of self-service BI who need faster performance, more in-depth data analysis, and higher levels of security for increased productivity with PowerPivot for Excel. Intelligent Performance for Business Intelligence: Speed time to actionable insight and improve productivity for PowerPivot users with impressive performance and faster application launch and file loading. PCs powered by a 2010 Intel Core i5 vPro processor run business productivity applications up to 80 percent faster than a three-year-old PC. In addition, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology in the 2010 Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors intelligently allocates extra processing power to match the workload—accelerating the processor clock by up to 20 percent. In other words, these new processors automatically deliver extra performance when you need it most. PCs powered by Intel Core i5 vPro processors also deliver up to two times faster multi-tasking performance than a three-year-old PC.   Smart, Client-side Security to Protect Data: Maximize security for PowerPivot users by automatically guarding against viruses and malicious attacks, protecting against tampering or disabling of security software, and accelerate encryption operations. New PCs with Intel Core vPro processors can help PowerPivot users be more secure by avoiding the 53 percent increase in security incidences seen in four-year-old PCs. Credentials can be embedded in the hardware and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager SP2 enables network traffic on all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processor-based PCs to authenticate itself.    Cost-saving Manageability for Greater Productivity: The all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processors simplify management tasks, so you can be more productive while keeping costs down—up to 50 percent lower PC maintenance costs. Intel Core vPro technology makes it easy to deploy and manage PowerPivot for Excel 2010 with a secure, encrypted power-up capability that enables you to push updates down the wire quickly and efficiently. You can also remotely repair and secure PCs regardless of power state or location, improve support for remote workers with “Call for Help” to IT to manage and repair a PC even outside the firewall, and use hardware-assisted remote shutdown, wake-up, and update of PCs.
  • To enable insight and answers within seconds from data stored in both internal and external repositories, server systems need to deliver a high level of performance. The Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5600 series offer scalable, secure, cost-effective means for industry-standard servers to accommodate increasing demands on Microsoft PowerPivot for SharePoint 2010 services as PowerPivot workbooks become integral to enterprise workflows and decision-making. IW Producers can publish PowerPivot workbooks to SharePoint Server 2010, and IW Consumers can then access the published workbook applications through their Web browser, with almost the same performance and features as the Excel client. Intelligent Performance for BI Services: With massive memory bandwidth plus with up to 50% more cores and cache, Intel Xeon 7500 and 5600 processors deliver faster performance for self-service BI analytics and greater throughput and responsiveness for multi-threaded SQL Server 2008 R2-based applications accessed via PowerPivot. Intel® QuickPath Technology and an integrated memory controller speed traffic between processors and I/O controllers and reduce latency, providing up to 4.4x the bandwidth of previous generation processors. The scalable BI platform enables your end users to gather, analyze, and share reports—even using millions of rows—in a highly secure and compliant way while providing an authoritative version of data.   Secure Data, Reliable Access: The Intel Xeon processor 5600 series help keep data and services secure and available for PowerPivot users. Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) in Windows Server 2008 R2 offers robust failure reporting, rich diagnostics and faster recovery times to further improve server availability. Intel Xeon 5600 series processors built on next-generation Intel Microarchitecture are designed for reliability, with features including Enhanced Memory ECC, Memory Sparing, Memory Mirroring, and Memory CRC that work in conjunction with the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system to enable high levels of uptime for business services.   Virtualization to Optimize Utilization, Availability and ROI: Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V and the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series offer enhanced virtualization security, and lower data center costs for PowerPivot infrastructure in a virtualized environment, with up to 2.4x better virtualization performance than previous generation processors. Gain outstanding virtualization headroom in a 2-socket platform: up to 15:1 consolidation ratios when refreshing servers based on single-core processors. Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) also provides hardware-assisted protection against software attacks at operating system and VMM launch and to enhance security and flexibility through the creation of trusted pools of server and VM resources.
