Event ID: 1032377458
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Microsoft SQL Server.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

Throughout this series, we use Contoso as our scenario customer as we explore the features that make up the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 platform. Contoso is a shipping company that delivers all kinds of items around the globe, from small individual items to large manufactured items. Contoso has seen growth in its business over the past years, especially in the movement of goods from China around the world. While Contoso is happy with their in-house applications and believe they provide a significant advantage over competitors, Contoso wants to ensure that these applications are running on the most productive platform to maintain this advantage, especially as their business grows worldwide. The recent growth at Contoso has been mirrored with the growth of its data, from client voice mails to scanned and e-mail documents. These documents are now common as part of insurance claims or parts of quotes. This growth in unstructured data has led Contoso to look at options for its storage, access, security, and searching needs.
The business intelligence (BI) platform that Contoso is building can be used in a variety of ways by its employees using technologies built into the 2007 Microsoft Office system. In this webcast, we review the integrated reporting and analytics options available to Contoso, including:

Microsoft Office Excel 2007.
Excel Services.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server.
