SQL 2012 Power View Reporting Services Addin

I have to say, I was pretty blown away by a recent demo of the new Power View product (codename: CRESCENT) released with SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services. The demo shows some really cool visualization features. Power View is only available on Enterprise or Business Intelligence versions of SQL Server 2012 and it is also only accessible through Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Edition or through Excel 2013. It’s a reporting services add-in written in Silverlight. If you are eager you can download the Excel 2013 preview here. And here is the link for the SQL Server 2012 Eval.

The demo seems to run off of a cube, however they do not specify. I’m not sure, but I assume you could also run this off of data source views exposed by reporting services however it probably would not have the cross-reference capability.

Paul,Weight’s not a huge issue, first thing I did was put a rack on it so I can hang a saddlebag full of ctehlos and shoes on it for commuting to work. 😉 It’s not a race bike by any stretch, neither the frameset or the components.I’m not on motionbased, I don’t have a GPS unit. I’m trying to find something that’ll do good 4-space logging, and really struggling at it. And I think I’m going to post right now on the topic and see if anyone can help suggest something. There’s at least one or two gadget geeks who read this. 😉
