I am a self-professed SQL Server geek. Yes I am. And I am very, very excited about the SQL Server 2012 launch. SQL Server 2012 is a significant leap from its predecessors, and SQL Server is entering a whole new world with this version. Be part of the coolness – Register here for the Virtual Launch event
There are a lot of improvements that I am pretty excited about, but I have to play favorites right now. My absolute favorites are the BI improvements:
PowerView + Big Data + SSRS Improvements
Right now, PowerView just blows my mind. I can see a lot of challenges that this tool can solve. I just wish this was available as a standalone/standard tool, then it will definitely make more people happy.
Check out the PowerView features outlined in the SSRS team blog.
DQS – Data Quality Services
Most of us have bad data. And most of us have to struggle with cleaning our data.
I think it’s high time that SQL Server integrated a tool to help us clean the data. DQS helps profile and cleanse your data. The coolest thing? It’s a “learning” solution. You can capture the knowledge base from previous scans, and feed it back to the system to make it “smarter”.
