Get powerful insights into your data with just a few clicks in your browser – no installation required – with a set of web services that apply the Data Mining technology in SQL Server Analysis Services. If you have used the Table Analysis Tools for Excel add-in from the SQL Server 2008 Data Mining Add-ins for Office package, you already know how to navigate these services. To explore:
1. Visit http://clouddm.msftlabs.com/
2. Click the Load Data button to either pick one of the sample data sets or load your own data.
3. Click one of the analysis tool buttons (Analyze Key Influencers, Forecasting, Prediction Calculator) and make a couple of selections to get a rich report that provides the analysis you need.
Enjoy and please provide feedback. Also, watch for a follow-up post that dives into the web service API that you can call from your own web or rich-client application.
