Microsoft Tech-Ed 2010 BI Conference, New Orleans Day 1 (Monday 7th June 2010)

The Tech-Ed 2010 Conference kicked off today with the Keynote session.  The BI Keynote session is tomorrow but today's keynote did incorporate a small BI Element.  No huge announcements, but some announcements all the same.

- Unsuprisingly, Cloud computing dominated the keynote.  Highlighting application Integration of Cloud apps & data with on-premise data e.g. Active Directory and business operational systems data to demonstrate "real-world" cloud computing solutions.

- July will see a release of Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

- Windows Server AppFabric, Application Role Extensions to, for example, faciliate Cloud to on premise integration capability is now RTM

- Windows Intune, Cloud based PC management environment

- No date set, but Internet Explorer 9 will focus on performance (Graphics accelleration) and new web standards, and is probably a response to Google speedy Chrome claims

- The Microsoft Live Labs "Pivot" research project, is to hit the mainstream.  They were a little cagey around dates, but possibly this month.

Maybe some more BI specific announcements tomorrow...
