Title: Powering Business Intelligence development with PowerShell
Abstract: So often, due to pressures of busy working environments, aspects of the Business Intelligence development lifecycle get missed out, resulting in wrong reports, wrong data, and wrong business decisions. SharePoint offers a variety of new ways to provision Business Intelligence throughout the organisation, which in turn will require Business Intelligence developers to work smarter in order to meet the business thirst for data! Fortunately, PowerShell can help to smooth the path for the business intelligence developer. Using examples, this session will show how PowerShell can help Business Intelligence developers too.
