OK - so if you haven't booked in for the Microsoft Business Intelligence Partner Day/Love-in you're probably too late. But for those who can't make it due to the fact that you're not in the UK I'll provide a synopsis of the Gartner overview in a blog post later next week.


For those of you who are attending here's what you'll hear:

  • Overview from Gartner on the opportunity for Partners making investments in Business Intelligence skills.  
  • Explanations and demonstrations of the complete Microsoft solution offering, from SQL Server 2005 to front-end analytic tools such as ProClarity and Microsoft Office Excel 2007. 
  • Hear details on Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007.
  • Understand the benefits of the Microsoft Partner Programme.


I'll be around all day with Chuck Mitten who's over from the OBA team in Redmond - so feel free to drop in and say Hi if your in London on Wednesday.

Don't forget to enrol all your loved ones on the PerformancePoint CTP and failing that get down to your local PC-World and buy them Vista and Office 2007.

Much better than flowers or chocolates.
