Power View in RC0 and Live Sandbox

You may remember a demo I did when SQL Server 2012 CTP3 was released showing Power View (then still Project “Crescent”) and an auto demo.  Well, I’ve updated the demo with RC0 bits and its just getting sweeter and sweeter.
You can check out a video of the demo here – https://youtu.be/7k77Pzf5Dlg –  and you’ll immediately notice a few things since CTP3.  For one, a cleaner looking UI and experience.  Next, some new capabilities that you just can’t really live without including sorting, improved filtering, and multiple views.
So instead of putting everything on a single canvas, you can now insert as many of them as you like.  And when you export this to PowerPoint, you have the same dynamic and rich interactive experience.  Check out the plethora of additional features you’ll see in RC0 over at the SSRS team blog

Want to try this demo out for yourself?  Head on over to our sandbox and start playing around.  Just hit the edit report link if you want to modify anything.  The link will take you to the same report that you see in the video and you can interact with it.  If you do not have Silverlight 5 installed it will prompt you to download it once you login using your LiveID.

If you want to create your own report using the same Semantic Model in the video, use this link .

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season and a fantastic New Year.  And if you don’t already have SQL Server 2012 RC0 – what are you waiting for, 2012? 🙂
