More on the Future of BI with Microsoft, Dynamics AX and Project Gemini

In the past I mentioned Project Gemini, which will have a large impact on new features, and abilities for doing BI reporting, analytics in regard to Microsoft stack, including Dynamics AX.

The following is a great video that really goes into project Gemini, and covers what Gemini is.
Ch. 9 Project Gemini Video

From the details of the Video:
"Need to make timely business decisions without having to use complicated and sluggish analytical applications? Love to use Excel? Project Gemini is an Excel 2010 add-in that allows you to create powerful analyses by quickly manipulating millions of rows of data into a single Excel workbook and utilize Microsoft Office 2010 to share and collaborate on your insights with your team."

"For all you spreadsheet jockeys out there, this should prove extraordinarliy useful to you when you need to crunch and analyze lots of data effeciently. Wow. 1,000,000 rows in Excel without causing a hang."

So this whole 'BI for the Masses' will start to have some real meaning behind the term, once Gemini becomes a reality.

Another great resource on this, can be found at the following link.:
Project "Gemini": Build powerful analytical applications

"You can combine native Excel 2010 functionality with Gemini’s in-memory engine to allow users to interactively explore and perform calculations on large data sets. In addition, you can easily streamline the process of integrating data from multiple sources – including corporate databases, spreadsheets, reports, and data feeds.

Share and collaborate with confidence by easily publishing your analysis to SharePoint 2010 and have other users enjoy the same slicer and fast-query capabilities when working on your Excel Services reports."

So now, with Office 2010, and the next release of Dynamics AX 2011, Analytics and Ad-hoc ability to really offer BI to masses will have a dramtic face lift and new offerings. This includes collaboration making use of SharePoint, which is already a big part of the Dynamics AX platform.

This is going to add to, the already existing abilities of BI options with Dynamics AX, and will add to also the ability to talior Role Centers and add meaningful data points and reports / abilities to those users that need those Dashboard or Role Centers.

That's all for now, but check back soon as more to come.
