SQL Server 2008 is a broad, integrated, easy-to-use, and rich platform for database management and delivering Business Intelligence (BI). SQL Server 2008 R2; the latest release to this enterprise-class DBMS, was announced at TechEd 2009. The official launch of the R2 release is set for May 12th, 2010. SQL Server 2008 R2 delivers several breakthrough capabilities. It is a trusted DBMS platform that will enable your organisation to scale database operations with confidence. It improves IT and developer efficiency. In R2, BI has been updated with the best of data integration and transformation, warehousing, and multidimensional analysis. This platform introduces comprehensive Master Data Management, and it showcases an innovative and powerful self-service mechanism for data analysis called PowerPivot, which empowers a new class of business users to build and share powerful BI solutions with little or no IT support, while still enabling IT to monitor and manage user-generated BI solutions. At this complimentary seminar, Microsoft’s Alan Eldridge along with New Horizons will introduce you to the new features in the much awaited R2 release and will deep dive into advanced BI concepts, for existing BI professionals.

No launch love for the Adelaide folks then? I'm sure the local user group would be keen to get the launch across to our fair city, and spread the word to their peers.
