SQL Server Code Name “Kilimanjaro” and “Project Madison” webcast

The new version of SQL server Code named “Kilimanjaro” is going to release in FY2010. Before that microsoft wants to give a brief introduction of the same. So they have created this webcast. You can download the webcast by registering here. This session will provide you with an sneak preview into the next release of SQL Server codenamed ‘Kilimanjaro’ as well as project ‘Madison’.

On a high level the new features that are coming with this release are as follows

  • Self Service Analysis (Project “Gemini”) and Reporting
  • BI sharing,Colloboration and Resource Management
  • Application and multi server management

Project “Gemini” has 4 components in it

  • Excel  Reporting tool
  • In memory BI engine
  • Sharepoint  Integration
  • Analysis service as the backend

Also SQL server wants to have a major release for every 24-36 months from the release of SQL server 2008. That means we can expect this “Kilimanjaro” major release to be in the near future(Aug 10).

So keep your fingers crossed and be prepared for the steep learning curve.
