MBIC Third Day [General Session]



(Português) - (English)


Last day of Microsoft BI Conference... 🙁


In the general session we had a session where Microsoft shared with us part of their vision to the next years. Some of the message we have already heard during the event, but if we can put it in five pillars, here they are:

- Growing richness of excel model
- Notion of pervasive connection to data
- Self service business intelligence
- Integrating business process into performance management
- Focus on the Office client as a BI application

One thing that drove everyone attention was an example of BI delivered easily, using.... SURFACE. It was an example on how to use Microsoft Surface to show a live map integrated with information about energy and water consumption in the buildings at Seattle downtown (drawing it over the buildings, integrated with an eagle's eye view of the city). If you click in a particular building you could see information about the water quality and compare it to nearby cities or other states. Really, really amazing, BI made easy at the tips of your finger. User experience in a new level!

  1. Olá Luciano. Parabéns pelas excelentes sessões no TechEd sobre Entity Framework. Uma coisa que me chamou atenção no TechEd foi a total ausência do Surface. Ninguém sequer tocou no assunto. Seria pq ele ainda está mto distante de nossa realidade? Um abraço.

    Oi Márcio.

    A Microsoft Brasil está trabalhando para trazer o Surface para nossa terrinha. Eu tive a oportunidade de brincar com o Surface no Sheraton, lá em Seattle. Muito bacana mesmo. Dá para viajar pensando nos tipos de aplicações que podemos fazer para interagir com o usuário. Vamos esperar por boas notícias… Torço para não estar muito longe da nossa realidade, mas não acho que será no próximo mês. 🙂

    Abraços
