The folks on the BI Practices Team(now merged in with the SQL Server Perf Engineering Team) have spent the last 2 years working on a mondo BI reference implementation called Project Real. Working with data that started out form a real customer, hardware vendors and tools vendors they have built a great blueprint for a SQL Server 2005 BI System. Congrats to Dave, Len and all the others that helped over the last 2 years.
