Ist "BI" für Sie kein Fremdwort oder unbekanntes Akronym? Business Intelligence ist mehr als "nur" ein weiterer vertikaler und isolierter Tool Approach. BI wird zur matchentscheidenden und strategischen Plattform Fähigkeit. Microsoft hat in den vergangenen Jahren sehr viel in diese Plattform Fähigkeit investiert und bietet mit SQL Server 2005, Office 2005 (client und server) und den kommenden Office PerformancePoint Server eine sehr mächtige Plattform. Die Hauptvorteile des Microsoft Ansatzes liegen denn auch in der konsequenten Umsetzung unserer Kern-Stärken: Commodity, Client, Usability. Diese werden auf Basis von offenen Standards in höchstem Masse mit den serverseitigen Komponenten integriert. Natürlich ist es selbstredend, dass die Integration und Interoperabilität gerade im BI-Umfeld sehr zentral und wichtig ist, deshalb gibt es auch namhafte Kooperationen (wie z.B. mit SAP, Teradata, Hyperion u.a.).

Um die Wichtigkeit von BI Rechnung zu tragen und unseren Kunden und Partnern fokussiert Informationen diesbezüglich bieten zu können, führt Microsoft zum ersten Mal eine dedizierte Business-Intelligence Konferenze durch. Nachfolgend finden Sie weitere Informationen (in englisch).

Wenn Sie als Partner oder Kunde von Microsoft eine spannende BI-Lösung auf Basis unserer Technologie entwickelt haben, laden wir Sie ein, Ihre Lösung im Rahmen dieser Konferenz vorzustellen. Ein separater Kunden-Track ist innerhalb dieser Konferenz für "real-world" Lösungen reserviert.
