Real-Time BI with SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services
Author: Greg Linwood Date Posted: 3/13/2006 12:39:17 AM
There is an increasing demand to make business intelligence (BI) 'real-time'. This session discusses the challenges of making BI more real-time, and how some of these challenges can be overcome using new features in Analysis Services, and other components of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. In particular this session will focus on exploring the pro-active caching feature of Analysis Services 2005.

While the barriers to completely real-time BI remain, SQL Server 2005 makes information real-time enough to support better and faster business decisions.

So, can Analysis Services 2005 query real-time data from SQL Server faster than SQL Server itself? Come along and find out for yourself!
