  • Key Message
    SharePoint 2010 offers solutions across a range of business issues. Office SharePoint Server 2007 is already a leader in multi-requirement deployments, and SharePoint 2010 is taking it to the next level, without losing any of the existing strengths.

    Presenter Notes
    Microsoft SharePoint 2010 enables organizations to connect and empower people through an integrated set of rich features. SharePoint 2010 facilitates business collaboration in its broadest sense and helps colleagues, partners, and customers to work together in new and effective ways.

    The key business challenges it addresses are:
    Site delivery
    Collaboration through communities
    Content development and management
    Searching for content
    Providing usable insights into business data
    Providing a platform for business solution development by business users and professional developers

    Presenter Guidance
    Don’t go into lots of detail here, as the presentation reviews each workload later on.
  • Key Message
    Business is all about making the right decisions. SharePoint 2010 provides the tolls and the interface to get the right information to the right people in the right format..

    Presenter Notes
    Use the slides to list the benefits of SharePoint 2010 business insights.

    Additional Notes
    Empower Decision Makers
    Empower users to collaborate better and make more agile business decisions by accessing the information they need, when they need it. With powerful self-service capabilities integrated into familiar tools, users can create and share the right information and drive the business forward by providing timely responses and taking advantage of opportunities as they arise.

    Improve Organizational Effectiveness
    Manage, drive, and define organizational success by aligning to key metrics and strategy through context-driven dashboards. Measure critical success factors and empower everyone to create and analyze the information necessary to stay informed and move the business forward. Enable accountability and transparency across the company and remove barriers to productivity.

    Enable IT Efficiency
    Use a complete, integrated business collaboration platform that can empower users to discover, analyze, and share the right information across unstructured and structured assets. With a platform built on standards, IT can address business requirements by putting information in the hands of users and focusing on developing, maintaining, and securing systems.

    Key features are the extended services:

    Excel Services
    Excel Services makes it simple to use, share, secure, and manage Microsoft Office Excel 2007 workbooks as interactive reports in a consistent way throughout the enterprise.
    Visio Services
    Visio Services in SharePoint 2010 provides the capability to render Visio diagrams and charts within the browser. Business users can use one of the existing out-of-the-box filter Web Parts to apply filtering criteria to a diagram to restrict what is and is not rendered.
    PerformancePoint Services, Dashboards and Scorecards
    PerformancePoint Services is a balanced scorecard and dynamic dashboard tool that allows power users/IT to create dynamic and highly interactive dashboards that display strategy to operations.
    Business Connectivity Services (BCS)
    BCS allows you to create SharePoint applications that bring external data into the Office system, extending the rich Office user experience and SharePoint collaboration capabilities to business data and processes.

    Presenter Guidance
  • This presentation is principally about showcasing SQL Server 2008 offerings. Use this slide to introduce the data (BI) platform and how it has been designed to integrate with other Microsoft offerings.

    Use this slide to introduce the three BI services and the relational engine, which in this presentation is usually referred to in the role of a data warehouse. In general, do not spend too much time talking about the relational engine improvements because they will be addressed in other presentations.

    Briefly describe each of the three BI services:
    Integration Services—typically used to perform ETL operations to populate data warehouses—can integrate, cleanse, and transform data from a large variety of data sources.
    Analysis Services, consisting of OLAP and data mining components, provides superior aggregated analysis over large volumes of data and the ability to perform predictive analytics.
    Reporting Services—which can source data from relational, multidimensional, and data mining data sources—can be used to present and distribute information.

    These BI services have been designed to work together but work just as well independently.

    Spend less time introducing the Office offerings. The important message to deliver is that the information-worker platform rests solidly on top of the SQL Server data platform to deliver relevant information to information workers (to support strategic, tactical, and operational decisions). In particular, define the role of Excel and PerformancePoint Server to help prepare for the upcoming demonstrations.
