Dear all
My Manager asked me to make a presentation on Microsoft BI
I have a very few experience on this subject, but I want to talk about it.
I was thinking about talking:
What is BI in general?
What is BI in Microsoft?
Its hardware requirements
What is the benefit of BI?
What else I am missing
Thanks

Not everything through those links led to technical resources... Well okay, my short answer to "what is BI" would be "It's all about the company's numbers.".  Management needs to be able to report on/analyze "the numbers" to make effective decisions and thus improve the company's profitability.  And a BI implementation ensures that those numbers are available (historically) whenever they are needed, with the necessary filters.

You'll find several more reasons through following links:

Some more links leading to articles explaining what BI is:

As for how to present this: try not to overwhelm them with words they've never heard before.  But you'll need to explain some of the important keywords such as facts, dimensions, ...

If you're interested in MS BI, I would also explain how the different components co-operate: load data from different sources into a SQL Server DB using SSIS - this would be your "star schema" or DWH, build cubes on top of the DWH using SSAS, build reports on top of the cubes using SSRS or Report Builder, publish the reports on a SharePoint server, analyze data by connecting Excel 2010 to the cube, ...

I think the best way for you to get started with Microsoft BI is to get a good book on the subject and read through it whilst experimenting with the different tools.

One book that I can recommend called "Smart Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server 2008".

That way you'll feel more confident during the presentation, and you'll need the knowledge anyway if your objective is to build a complete solution.
