Session Title:
BI and Automation Tools for IT featuring SharePoint and SQL Server

IT organizations are responsible for delivering and maintaining technology solutions and capabilities throughout organizations; sometimes at the expense of their own productivity. Resource constraints deter IT organizations from investing the time and attention necessary for process improvement, resulting in a reactive approach to problem solving. Now is the time to empower IT using reports, dashboards, and notifications.

This presentation demonstrates how to utilize SharePoint Server, SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to create business intelligence and automation tools for IT. This session covers high-level concepts as well as practical, hands-on instructions, tips, and tricks.
