Business Intelligence in schools – mapping data with Report Builder

Rod Colledge, is a Microsoft Most Valued Professional (MVP) for SQL Server, and an expert on the technology side of the use of Business Intelligence in education in Australia. For a living, he helps Microsoft customers with their own business intelligence projects, through his business at StrataDB. But in his role as a Microsoft MVP one of the things that he’s been able to do is record a series of short videos of examples of using business intelligence in education, to show some of the simple things that are useful for school leaders and teachers.

Today’s video is a short demonstration of using geospatial visualisation, using a demonstration education data set. It’s a simple example of how you can take a complex data set and visualise it a number of different ways.

The demo is using a dummy dataset and was built in Report Builder in MS SQL Server 2012
