Business Intelligence "lights up" with Office SharePoint 2007 - Grant Paisley (Angry Koala)
Author: Jeff Wharton Date Posted: 8/14/2006 11:02:07 AM
Come and see how Office SharePoint 2007 "lights up" Business Intelligence.

What is business intelligence? It is simply "turning data into knowledge"

We have extraordinarily powerful quiver of tools for building knowledge from data in SQL Server including:

1. SQL Engine - data storage
2. Analysis Server - multidimensional database
3. Integration Services - move and transform data
4. Reporting Services - creation, management, deployment of reports.

Office SharePoint 2007 gives us the best vehicle to integrate and expose this knowledge through collaboration and document management. In this session we get a whirlwind tour of:

- KPI's / Dashboards
- Server based Excel and data visualization
- Report Centre
- BI Web Parts
- Business Data Catalog

This is the session presented by Grant at TechEd 2006 in Australia and China
