Given that the team have already made noises about adding BI features to SDS soon, I can’t wait to see what form they’ll take. Of course there are already lots of ways of doing BI with data stored online as my last blog entry showed; there are also couple of startups like Birst and GoodData who do very sophisticated BI things in the cloud already. But I hope Microsoft has something up its sleeve, and that I can run an MDX query against it…
