Get First Hand Experience with Power View (Previously Crescent) using Live Sandbox

As most of you are aware, Microsoft BI (SQL Server BI) is getting stronger and better after each release and is one of the top BI products in the market and also the most widely hosted in house database server.
Those of you, who are tracking the Denali release closely, must be aware of a band new product from Microsoft called “Crescent“, which is a Self Service BI Tool. This has been renamed as “Power View” as part of the SQL Server 2012 RC0 release.
Power View installation/setup requires SharePoint as well, which not everyone in the community might have it at their disposal, but still every Microsoft BI enthusiast wants to get a first-hand experience with the latest tools/features of Microsoft BI. If you are one among them, then you can play with existing reports or create new reports using Power View on the Live Sandbox.

Happy Power Viewing 🙂
