Submit Your Feedback on Analysis Services and PowerPivot

Now that the Microsoft SQL Server Code Name “Denali” Evaluation edition is available for download, we are eager to hear from you. Do you like the new Business Intelligence (BI) features, such as the new professional BI developer tools? Do you find it easy to create tabular models on an Analysis Services server? What additional features would you like to suggest? Did you discover any of those “undocumented features” generally known as software bugs? Please take the time to let us know:

  1. Go to the SQL Server Connect page at
  2. Add new feedback or comment on existing issues.

As a side note, according to Wikipedia, Thomas Edison used the term Bug in a letter as far back as 1878: “ 'Bugs' — as such little faults and difficulties are called—show themselves and months of intense watching, study and labor are requisite before commercial success or failure is certainly reached. ” And this is what our Community Technology Preview is all about: Intense watching, study and labor to deliver the next version of SQL Server in the highest quality. Your help in this effort is very much appreciated!
