Book News Annotation:

This volume provides step-by-step instructions for producing graphical reports of data analysis from Microsoft SQL server 2008 R2. Based around the Reporting Services Report Builder 3.0 that comes bundled with the SQL server application, this guide walks users through the creation of charts, gauges and maps, for data presentations as well as exploring topics such as data mining and the use of PowerPivot, an "add-in" that integrates the SQL server with the Excel spreadsheet application for user-level analysis of large data sets. Numerous screen-shots and eight color plates illustrate the visual capabilities of the application. Harts is services executive and Dugan is a solutions architect, both at Microsoft. Almas is a technical architect for Microlink, LLC, a Microsoft partner. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
