Just a quick note – for those like me who didn’t make it to a Tech Ed event this year, Microsoft have been publishing all the session’s recordings online at http://www.msteched.com/. If you dig into the North America sessions you can browse by subject for the BI tracks (http://www.msteched.com/2010/NorthAmerica) where I have been doing most of my viewing.
I’ve been through about 20 of the videos now (great commuting fodder on my shiny Samsung Galaxy S – a great Andriod phone) and my knowledge of the stack has increased significantly as a result – the quality of the sessions is really amazing and a lot of the speakers are MS personnel, so the story is straight from the horses mouth.
I’ll also mention one video in particular – Budgeting, Forecasting and Performance Management with the MS BI Stack – http://www.msteched.com/2010/Australia/DAT307 – purely because its presented by one of my colleagues (Boyan Penev, see blogroll) and my boss, Lionel Gomes Da Rosa
As a final note, these videos are a great example of social marketing done right – by sharing this knowledge base and presentations, interested people can learn more and become excited about the product. No registration to put people off – if they like it – they will seek more.
