For the month of December the meeting dates and what happening for different User Groups has been all rearranged for obvious reason (Christmas vacation).  Here is what’s going on at the three user groups that I attend regularly:

Topic: BI: Then and Now?
Level: Beginner
Date: Monday, December 6, 2010
Location: Matrix Resources Dunwoody Office
Sponsor: Strategy Companion Corporation

Overview:
We will begin by taking a look how the focus and characteristics of Business Intelligence have changed over the last 25 years. We will also discuss the recent history of Microsoft’s focus on BI, and will take an in-depth look at another approach to SQL Server-based BI provided by Strategy Companion Corporation. You will see why companies such as Citigroup, L’Oreal, Honeywell, DataQuick, and many others have embraced Analyzer, Strategy Companion’s award-winning front-end to Analysis Services, for their Business Intelligence applications. You’ll see why SQL Server magazine recently called Analyzer "the best solution to complete the Microsoft BI platform." (Editor’s Best Award, December 2009.) And you’ll learn ways to quickly and add significant value to your SQL Server-based data – the kind of value business people will be able to see, understand, and appreciate.

Atlanta Technical Community Holiday Party

This year, Microsoft, will bring the Atlanta technical community together not only in spirit, but in holiday fun as well. We invite you to join us for a holiday celebration at {three} Sheets on Wednesday, December 15 at 7pm.

This will be the perfect event for networking and seeing what’s going on with the different technologies in the community. When you’re not mingling, have some fun playing the new Xbox Kinect. Or enjoy some of the delicious appetizers provided by Microsoft.

Don’t forget, it’s the giving season! It’s not required, but please bring an new, unwrapped toy to give to Toys for Tots. We would like to do our part for this wonderful cause.
