Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Phil Milner on March 28, 2011
Format: Paperback
NOTE: source and sample code for book at the DataInspirations web site (see comments section for exact link)

This is a Well-written book on the latest version (R2) of the Microsoft Business Intelligence tools
Additionally, it has two important features that really make it stand out:

1. It explains the whole set of Microsoft BI tools and MS's vision for BI
2. It explains trends in BI such as how to integrate unstructured data & structured data

The scope of this book is wider than the usual, tool-centric book. That makes it extremely valuable. It's relatively easy to obtain information on tools. It's much more difficult to obtain information on using the right tool for the right job. It's also difficult to obtain simple and comprehensive information on how Microsoft's tools relate to each other.

Finally, this is a great book for many audiences. Both the new and experienced developer community will benefit from the breath of the information. They will also benefit by seeing how the MS BI tools relate to each other and to glimpsing Microsoft's BI vision.
These last two features, tool integration and vision, make this a great book for the IT manager or executive. It provides them an overview of Microsoft BI and also provides additional material to pursue that overview.

By Dimitri Shvorob on January 4, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
I am appreciative of the book's helicopter tour of Microsoft's BI-related tools, but there are three reservations. First, the book is showing its age; SSAS Tabular and Power View are two easy-to-spot big omissions, and there are miscellaneous smaller things which a more recent book would mention. Second, the book could use more editing: two particular peeves are hard-to-understand section sequences, and advanced sections in the middle of beginner-friendly text. Finally, the book's tour, in my opinion, goes too far away from BI - the last three chapters could be dropped altogether, for example - leaving room for a shorter, more focused book to come in and lure away the potential reader. (Brian Larson's "Delivering business intelligence" is hardly short - and I actually don't like it that much - but it fits the bill. Incidentally, unlike Larson's, this book is not especially hands-on, so I don't join the complaints about missing or problematic sample files, voiced in the comments to the earlier review). At $20, it's a "Not sure", but at a lower price, I would endorse the book as a see-if-you-like-it experiment.
