While I was in San Francisco for VSLive, I took half an hour to talk about BI with Ron Jacobs, host of ARCast, Microsoft's Internet audio podcast for software architects. The show went up online yesterday.

The podcast is timely, given that I just returned from the Microsoft BI PAC (Partner Advisory Council) meeting. While most of what was discussed there is under non-disclosure, what I can tell you is that Microsoft is serious about BI on the server, on the client, and from line of business applications. Watch out Business Objects, Cognos and Hyperion!
