You’re probably like me – you’re a busy person.  So you’re constantly looking for ways to improve your productivity or to find a short cut big chunks of work.  A big chunk of work for me is trying to understand what’s new in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Yukon.  Well, I thought you’d like to know about a great shortcut on getting up to speed on Analysis Services 2005.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

If you’re active in the SQL Server BI space, you need to get to know Mosha Pasumansky’s Analysis Services Blog.  On January 30th, Mosha posted a great comparison of AS2K versus AS2005 that was done by two of Microsoft’s top field people (Jamie Basilico and Mark Frawley).  You can find their presentation at http://www.nysia.org/events/past/2004/2004129dbprof.pdf.  But on top of that, Mosha has provided a number of enhancements and added comments to the comparison PPT.  Look for Mosha’s January 30th posting at http://sqljunkies.com/WebLog/mosha/archive/2005/01/30/7031.aspx. 

 

One thing that I’m curious about is roughly how many of you are strongly interested in BI.  Give me a shout out!

 

Thanks,
