Project Crescent–A New Business Intelligence Tool

Microsoft’s SQL team just announced a new business intelligence tool built entirely on Silverlight codenamed Project “Crescent”.

Project Crescent allows business users to manage data and show information in a truly innovative and exciting way, allowing people to visualize, interact and report on data using highly interactive visualizations, animations and smart querying and present and share insights with others in the organization through rich storyboard presentation capabilities.

Crescent’s most exciting features is its integration with PowerPoint. Through a feature called Storyboarding, users can embed reports in PowerPoint and manipulate the live data during a presentation.
