This session will drill into some of the details on the shipping HP BDA and BDW appliances and how they can work well together to deliver a comprehensive BI and DW solution for customers.  Advances in the Microsoft Applications Platform include powerful new features and capabilities. BI and DW capabilities exposed in SQL Server, Analysis & Reporting Services, PowerPivot, and SharePoint deliver world-class capabilities. This infrastructure delivers multi-dimensional information to familiar and easy to use end-user applications -- extending reach while minimizing training requirements and complexity. Pre-configured data warehouse and business intelligence Appliances can dramatically accelerate time-to-value and reduce cost associated with infrastructure build-out, integration, and tuning. Integrated solutions can likewise free resources to focus on delivering and discovering insights and strategic value.
