At the beginning of this week the Analysis Services product team announced the new product roadmap:

As you can read in Chris Webb’s blog entry (http://cwebbbi.wordpress.com/2011/05/17/good-news-on-the-future-of-analysis-services/) there was a lot of discussion in the BI Community in the past 6 month and the product team took all the comments very seriously.

I personally think the roadmap looks much more clearer as the whole story was before. There of course still some question marks for me, but I think this will be an interesting future and we will still build UDM data warehouses.

So let’s go and make it happen. Smile
