  • Blog Post: Data Quality in SQL Server 2012 Part 5: Master Data Services Excel Add-In

    In the previous post in this series (sorry for the delay), I talked about the Client for DQS. It seems appropriate then that I introduce the desktop client for MDS. In this case, the client is Excel, through a freely-downloadable add-in that runs in Excel 2007 or 2010. You can download the add-in from...

  • Blog Post: Data Quality in SQL Server 2012 Part 2: Introducing Master Data Services

    In the previous blog post , I introduced the concept of Master Data Management as a methodology to improve data quality by creating a “master” version of important information. Master Data Services is Microsoft’s technology for implementing Master Data Management. It is included in...
  • Blog Post: Data Quality in SQL Server 2012 Part 1: Introducing Master Data Management

    Data quality is important and data quality mistakes can be expensive. Imagine a situation where a company has two systems, each with their own data set. One system is for CRM, the other is a financial system. Both systems have information about customers. Now an employee needs to send an invoice to a...
  • Blog Post: Data Quality in SQL Server 2012 Part 4: Data Quality Services Client

    Data Quality Services, introduced in the previous blog post , includes two main components: DQS Server and DQS Client. There’s also a DQS Cleansing transformation included in SSIS in SQL Server 2012, but I won’t be going into that in this post. In this post, I’ll be talking about these...

  • Blog Post: Playing with Power View

    I've been playing around with Power View (formerly codename Project Crescent). I started with a simple PowerPivot file I'd created to analyse the transactions of a small dog grooming salon (I wanted something different from the usual Contoso demos). It was a simple matter to publish this PowerPivot file...
  • Blog Post: SQL Server 2012 Webcasts

    Myself and colleagues (mostly Sam Solieman, but also will Thompson) have been running a series of webcasts on SQL Server 2012. The ones we've run so far have been recorded, so you can watch them on demand. The recordings are on the Partner Learning Center , so you'll need a Microsoft partner login to...

  • Blog Post: Data Quality in SQL Server 2012 Part 3: Introducing Data Quality Services

    The previous two blog posts have been focusing on Master Data Services .

Data Quality Services is a new set of functionality in SQL Server 2012, based...
