Whether you're heavily involved in BI or just starting out, this eBook will prove a valuable resource. If you're new to BI, the collection of chapters will give you a solid foundation for understand where BI has come from and where it's headed. If you're a BI veteran, you'll most likely turn first to the chapters that explain what's coming in SQL Server 2005. But you'll also find that the earlier chapters will help validate what you already know.

In three sections, a cadre of knowledgeable authors cover the essentials of BI, provide a wealth of BI tips and techniques, and talk in detail about the new features coming with SQL Server 2005. If you're doing anything with BI, this is a resource you shouldn't be without.
