I’m really excited to be speaking at SharePoint Saturday UK next weekend, this time about SharePoint & Business Intelligence – based around SQL 2012 improvements but something for everybody (even SharePoint Foundation users!).
SharePoint Saturday in the UK is by far the biggest free to attend SharePoint event in the UK – it’s sold out and there is only a waiting list now but worthwhile signing up anyway as places may become available.
BI for the masses with SQL 2012 and SharePoint 2010
This session will cover the major Business Intelligence improvements that SQL 2012 brings and how SharePoint 2010 can be configured to provide self-service access to this traditionally specialist realm. The following will be presented, with demonstrations using real data:
· SharePoint & SQL Integrated Reporting Services
· Power View including Bubble Charts and the design tools
· The BI Semantic Model (BISM) and impact of tabular data
· SQL 2008 R2 vs SQL 2012
· Azure Data Market
Hope to see you there – it will be a demo-heavy session so I’ll be taking screenshots as a backup in case of hardware issues (one of the #SPC12 presenters did this and it really saved his bacon!)
Also you should check out Patrick Sledz’ session on Office & SharePoint integration – there may just be a surprise collaborator… or should that be conspirator?
