From Zero to BI in 10 Minutes or less
By Rushabh Mehta
Finally a technology that the Information Worker can use to take raw data and turn it into valuable information in a matter of minutes from the comfort of their own desktop! In this very exciting and interactive session full of exciting demos, we will walk you through taking raw information from a variety of sources and building a powerful analytical model that can then be used for deep analysis and reporting. We will further see how this set of technologies revolving around the Office 2010 platform and SQL Server 2008 R2 will transform the way information workers will become self-sufficient with their ad-hoc BI and reporting needs.
If you are an information worker, a data junkie, a BI wannabie, want to see some amazing advancements in the Microsoft SQL Server technology stack or just spend an evening and have dinner with us then plan to attend this incredible session.
