I get feedback from a royalty reader that he wants to read more technology news from KhmerBird.
I expressed deep sorry because I didn’t have time to cover more topics.
Thank to his feedback, I will continue to cover important technology from time to time.
We will begin again with the launch of Windows 8 officially in Cambodia.
Yesterday, I joined Microsoft Technology Innovation Day at CJCC (Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center). It was a whole day seminar without lunch.
I cannot complain them because all the good hotel meeting rooms are booked by incoming ASEAN meeting. I took that opportunity to have lunch at Royal Phnom Penh University with those students.
The lunch and the presentations of Windows 8, SQL 2012 and Office 2012 were not bad at all.
My first impression of Windows 8
I read few times already about the fast boot time of Windows 8.
It was not a surprise.
The ability to maintain the profile from desktop to mobile or table might be a good advantage.
You will need to have a Hotmail log in of course. I stop using it for so many years. It’s time to recall my password now!
There’s another interesting point to check is the reading windows. I love their concept of eliminating all the rest of the desktop applications when we read an article.
It allows us to concentrate on the reading!
These are the 2 points that want me to test using Windows 8. I will look for Windows 8 Go that will allow me to test the environment of Windows 8 from a USB flash drive.
I hope it is not difficult to set up.
I talked to few people who already experienced with Windows 8, they seems don’t like it too much. I believe there are two main concerns: internet speed and too much things they don’t need.
I will write more details about it when I have chance to test it myself.
Microsoft Business Intelligent is awesome!
I have been working in creating reporting for more than 10 years. I know what the users need and how much they want the data to be available when they need to make a decision.
With PowerView that connects directly to SQL server, end users can do any analysis they wish to. I know that it might not so easy to set up at the back-end but the front-end is awesome.
You can have a look at this video to have an idea about PowerView:
PowerView comes with SQL server 2012, Business Intelligent Edition.
PowerPivot for Excel 2010
I just learn yesterday that we can install PowerPivot into excel 2010.
That would be an awesome tool to connect to almost any database to create the Pivot Tables. I will test it out soon.
If you want to try, you can download PowerPivot. When you finish installation, open your excel 2010, you will see PowerPivot menu.
I hope you enjoy this post, let me know if you want me to cover more on technology.
