Here is a link to the final Microsoft BI slide presentation that I used at the NJ October SQL Server user group meeting:

Thank you to all who made it out for this Saturday morning event. It was great to meet with everyone and share our experiences with Microsoft BI. PA/NY/NJ user groups for SQL and .NET have a great following and a tremendous sense of community that is great to see outside of Redmond.

I am going to enter a new blog entry this week for the Q&A which I took and promised responses on. If anyone wishes to reach-out to me personally, please email me @

Lastly, a special message of gratitude to Melissa, Peter and Don, who made the day a success with their terrific organization efforts and AV assistance!

Best, Mark
