Topic: Unleash the Power of SQL Server 2012 Business Intelligence in SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2013 Preview
With the recent release of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and the upcoming release of SharePoint Server 2013, we will examine the enhancements to the Business Intelligence capabilities in SharePoint Server 2010 SP1 and SharePoint Server 2013. In this presentation, we’ll examine the changes to PowerPivot for SharePoint, the new Power View (previously codenamed ‘Project Crescent’) functionality, as well as architectural and capacity planning changes necessary in utilizing SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services as a full-blown, native SharePoint Service Application (SA). Finally, we’ll cover the steps to optimize PowerPivot data for Power View consumption.
Attendees should be experienced with the SharePoint Service Application (SA) architecture, and have experience with SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). Additionally, exposure to tabular data models and/or SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) will be beneficial.
