There are mainly three key features with Microsoft Business Intelligence products: Data Warehousing, Reporting and Analysis and Performance management. Data warehousing can help you provide insight into corporate data through an integrated, centrally managed, and trusted data source. Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) offers a scalable and enterprise-ready data warehouse platform that can help extend the value of your enterprise data. People need a way to rationalize all the data they encounter every day. Microsoft BI provides you with the reporting and analysis tools and technologies to capture both structured and unstructured information. Performance management includes: Monitoring: Scorecards, dashboards, and key performance indicators (KPIs) help drive accountability and alignment across your organization. Analytics: Integrated analytics helps you quickly move from monitoring information to analyzing it to sharing it throughout your organization. Planning: A flexible framework offers powerful business planning, budgeting, and forecasting and management reporting functionality that supports critical business processes and strategic decision making

Visual Studio does not support any programming language, solution or tool intrinsically. Instead, it allows various functionalities to be plugged in. Specific functionality is coded as a VSPackage. When installed, the functionality is available as a Service. The IDE provides three services: SVsSolution that provides the ability to enumerate projects and solutions, SVsUIShell that provides windowing and UI functionality (including tabs, toolbars and tool windows), and SVsShell that deals with registration of VSPackages. In addition, the IDE is also responsible for co-coordinating and enabling communication between services. All editors, designers, project types and other tools are implemented as VSPackages. Visual Studio uses COM to access the VSPackages. The Visual Studio SDK also includes the Managed Package Framework (MPF), which is a set of managed wrappers around the COM-interfaces that allow the Packages to be written in .NET languages. However, MPF does not provide all the functionality exposed by the Visual Studio COM interfaces. The services can then be consumed for creation of other packages, which add functionality to the Visual Studio IDE.
Windows Server 2003 operating systems take the best of Windows 2000 Server technology and make it easier to deploy, manage, and use. The result: a highly productive infrastructure that helps make your network a strategic asset for your organization.
