To many people, Microsoft means Windows and Office. But to IT professionals, developers and larger companies, Microsoft means back office products and developer tools for the enterprise.
That's why the launch of updates to 3 of the main back office products - Microsoft Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 - is such a big deal. The Cleveland launch took place at the Key Marriot on Thursday March 13th. About 2,000 IT professionals, developers and business people attended the launch to learn more about these new releases.
These products are the backbone for many businesses. And the technology has evolved so that people who are more business adept than techie can use the tools.
As you will hear in our first podcast with John H. Miller of Microsoft, SQL Server 2008 is an important tool to mine some of that trendy term - Business Intelligence.
He'll also touch on Uptime/availability, security and scalability of the data. March 13, 2008
