REAL TIME REPORTING, not NEAR, NOT Yesterday.. NOW!
SQL SERVER 2008 R2, a bold new era of some great new features. I wanted to share one that I have been looking at recently.
The short of it is that you can now monitor a real time data stream for reports and or alerts. This has been a long time coming and finally closes an open hole in the Microsoft reporting strategy.
Recently one of Microsoft’s ISV’s talked about how much it saved them being able to monitor the real time stream, rather than storing all of the data, they were able to store exceptions, and averages saving 100’s of gigabytes of data per day.
