Have you ever gotten whiplash as you twist your head in fifty directions, trying to research all the new features in a product? In this session, I’ll go through all the new features in SQL Server Denali. I won’t focus excessively on any one feature – instead, I’ll go through as many new features in SQL Server Denali as time permits. Everything from new database management features like the new Column Store index, new T-SQL Language Features, new SSIS features, as well as new features in PowerPivot 2.0 and the new Business Intelligence Semantic Model. I’ll also give a brief presentation on the new visualization features in Project Crescent.
