Data Visualisation with Power View and the Tabular Model

SQL Server 2012 introduces a paradigm shift: it brings new Data Visualisation and self-service Business Intelligence features designed for non-technical business users, as well as technically astute database developers, DBAs and Business Intelligence specialists.

How can we reach self-service users, who are oriented towards data visualisation? This session introduces you to Data Visualisation in the form of Power View, and new self-service in-memory technology for Tabular Models. This session will focus on the newest and most compelling features for Business Intelligence:

- Power View and its roots in Data Visualisation theory and practice
- Tabular Model: when is it best suited, and how does it stack up against multi-dimensional models?
- Successful Tabular Model implementation to promote self-service

Come to this session to learn about SQL Server 2012 newest features of Power View and the Tabular Model, designed for Business Intelligence and Data Visualisation.
