High Impact Data Visualization with Power View, Po&hellip by Adam Aspin
Over the last few years Microsoft have been hastily extending their BI offerings to cover those gaps in the corporate structure that don't fit anywhere in particular (the sort of users that could do with an OLAP cube but don't justify the expenditure of a data warehouse project).
