I have wonderful experience at my recent Business Intelligence tour. I will write down in detail about my experience at different location. However, today I would like to talk about one particular question which was asked at all the locations. It was about SQL Server Accelerator for Business Intelligence (BI). Many attendee asked me how to use this tool.
SQL Server Accelerator for Business Intelligence (BI) is no more supported by Microsoft. Microsoft does not provide any support for this solution accelerator and has no plans to release future versions. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and later versions include most of the functionality of the accelerator and are supported according to the Microsoft Product Lifecycle.
For the same reason, this tool is not included in the course as well new developer should not focus learning the same.
