3 Agenda Note: This session is on “Day 1 – Strategic Briefings” and is aimed at 100-200 level BUSINESS VALUE content for high ranking government officials Windows Server 2008 Overview Rob Campbell & Rhys Ziemer – 25 Minutes – Maximum 10 Slides Exchange Server 2007 Overview Walter Nichols – 25 Minutes – Maximum 10 Slides SQL Server 2008 Overview Monica DeZulueta – 25 Minutes – Maximum 10 Slides

4 WINDOWS SERVER 2008 An Introduction to

5 EXCHANGE SERVER 2007 An Introduction to

6 SQL SERVER 2008 An introduction to

7 Accelerate your development with entities Synchronize your data from anywhere Store and consume any type of data Deliver Location Intelligence within your applications Integrate all your data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse Reach all your users with scalable BI platform Empower every user with actionable insights Secure, trusted platform for your data Optimized and predictable system performance Productive policy-based management of your infrastructure SQL Server 2008

8 Secure, Trusted Platform For Your Data Transparent Data Encryption System Auditing External Key Management Flexible Server Roles Better SQL-Injection Protection Hot-Pluggable CPUs Protect your information Encrypt your data without requiring an application re-write Answer common auditing questions like “who saw my data” Consolidate security keys within the data center Enforce better “separation of duties” Increase the reliability of your applications Enable safer apps, scripts Add system resources without affecting your users

9 Optimized And Predictable Performance Scaling and Performance – Reduce storage costs and improve query performance via compression – Faster query processing Predictable Performance – Ensure consistent query performance – Manage concurrent workloads on single system – Prevent runaway queries Simplified Performance Tuning – Monitor your system by collecting and storing system events – Analyze and report on your system performance Data and Backup Compression Faster Query Operations Query Optimization Modes Resource Governor Performance Data Collection System Analysis

10 Productive Policy-based Management of Your Infrastructure Spend less time on ongoing operations – Manage via policies instead of scripts – Define enterprise-wide system mgmt policies – Automated policy verification, enforcement Integrated with enterprise system mgmt – Manage your system infrastructure with Microsoft System Center – Define policies aligned with Service Modeling Language Platform (formerly SDM) Simplified installation and configuration – Sysprep – distinct install and configuration steps – Embeddable installation – Slipstream support: e.g. combine RTM, SP1, QFE Declarative Management Framework (DMF) Server Group Management Enterprise System Management Streamlined Installation

11 Accelerate Your Development With Entities Develop with business entities – Define your business entities – Model your complex business relationships – Retrieve and work with entities instead of rows and columns – Bridge the impedance mismatch between programming languages and data languages – Program against relational data with objects – Support for client-side stores: SQL- CE Entity Data Model (EDM) LINQ Visual Entity Designer Object Services SQL Server and SQL CE entity-aware providers

12 Store and Consume any type of data Standard Date and Time types Rich Semi-Structured Data Support – Better XSD support – Store and index sparse data efficiently Find your data quickly – Query efficiently across relational, text data Build location-aware applications – Planar and Round-earth models Remove DBMS v/s File-system trade-off for Unstructured data – Build rich-data applications that span structured, semi-structured and unstructured data – DB consistency with FS performance New Date and Time Types Better XML XSD Support Sparse Columns, Filtered indexes Integrated Full Text Search Spatial Data Types Large UDTs Filestream storage

13 Enterprise Data Warehouse Scale and Manage large number of users and data –Improved Query performance on large tables –Queries Optimized for data warehousing scenarios –Increase I/O performance with efficient and cost effective data storage –Manage concurrent workloads of ad-hoc queries, reporting and analysis Integrate growing volumes of data –Optimize your ETL performance by identifying data in your largest tables –Reduce the data load volumes by capturing operational changes in data – Simplify your insert and update data processing – Profile your information to identify patterns and exceptions Partitioned Table Parallelism Star and Bitmap Optimizations Data Compression Resource Governor Faster SSIS Pipelines Change Data Capture MERGE SQL Statement SSIS Data Profiling

14 Reach All your Users with Scalable BI platform Drive broader analysis of your business –Enhance your analytical capabilities with more complex computations and aggregations –Improve dimension designers to help users avoid performance issues Deliver reports throughout your organization internal and externally – Create reports of any size or complexity – Simplified deployment and configuration – Reach your suppliers and customers by deploying reports over the internet Manage your BI infrastructure – Deliver analysis and reporting on commodity HW platforms with scale-out support – Improved scale-out mangement tools Analysis Scale and Performance Improved Dimension Designers Enterprise Reporting Engine Easier Report System Deployment Scale-out Analysis and Reporting

15 Empower Every User With Actionable Insight Deliver information via Microsoft Office –Seamless transition between reports and Office documents –Familiar Microsoft Office experience as authoring environment –Jump start your analysis with views of your default spreadsheets or reports Enable users to create powerful reports – Build powerful ad-hoc reports –Define your purchase orders, legal documents etc. as reports –Create reports with any structure Export reports to Word and Excel Author reports in Word and Excel Personalized Analysis Perspectives Report Builder Enhancements Rich Formatted Data Tablix

16 SQL Server Certifications – FIPS 140-2 Defines which algorithms can be used for encryption Algorithms be certified for Windows 2003 In process for Vista/Windows Server 2008 – Common Criteria International set of guidelines for security products In process of evaluating strategy and targets for Common Criteria FIPS 140-2 Common Criteria

17 Product Roadmap Please provide a list of product release dates starting with the most recent release and detailing future service packs, interim releases, and major releases as available – I will pretty this up into a roadmap graphic Windows – Windows Server 2008 RTM – February 27, 2008 – Windows Vista SP1 – H12008 – Windows Server 2008 R2 (Windows 7) – CY2010 Exchange Server – Exchange Server 2007 SP1 – December 5, 2007?? – Exchange 14 – SQL Server – SQL Server 2008 – second quarter of 2008 – SQL Server V.Next – CY2010 –CY2011 (release cycle 24-36 months)
