Microsoft has recently launched Microsoft BI Labs, a collection of experimental business intelligence projects and useful applications made available from internal sources across Microsoft.
Initial projects include
- PivotViewer Extension for Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
- Fuzzy Lookup Add-in for Microsoft Excel 2010
collection of cloud-based data-mining services based on the data-mining platform available as part of SQL Server Analysis Services. These services host an array of Analysis Services machines that are configured for stateless data mining on client data. The services are exposed as Windows Communication Foundation services in the cloud. Users can access these services through a browser-based client that posts client data to servers and retrieves predictive results. Microsoft has provided sample data in this hosted project, so go ahead and give it a try!
