Information about Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, SQL Server 2012, Business Intelligence and Office 2010.
http://mssalesdemos.com now includes a demo machine for SQL Server 2012. This includes the Telco demo that was present in the BI X demo machine as well as new demos on SQL Server 2012 functionality. There's a set of demos on PowerPivot, including the auto sales demo which has been shown at various events and one on the food consumed on picnics. There's also a demo on the new Master Data Services functionality.
These demos have a distinctly BI flavour but the machine is configurable if you want to build some demos of your own.
This machine is available either hosted or as a download. Just be prepared to wait a long time for the download.
Quick note, www.mssalesdemos.com results in 404 error, you need to go to http://mssalesdemos.com/
Thanks, Derek. I've fixed it.
Did you find that the zip file seemed to want 5 or so petabytes of hard disk storage when attempting to unzip the file?
The machine requirements from that site seemed to indicate only 80-200 gig of hard drive space was needed
Hi Lyndon. I didn't find that problem but the demo machine has since been removed and replaced with a Systems Center machine - possibly that one has the issue you've noticed.
Does anyone know where you can download the Auto Sales sample data model alone, so it can be imported into a local instance of SQL Server 2012?!?
