New Microsoft BI Labs site

Interesting new BI site from Microsoft called “BI Labs“.  This site says: “BI Labs is a collection of experimental business intelligence projects and useful applications made available from internal sources across Microsoft. These projects are prototypes and concepts, and there are no current plans to include them in Microsoft products.”

The site has a MDX/DAX formatter which I blogged about earlier, a Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services Log Viewer, PivotViewer Extension for Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Microsoft SQL Server Data Mining for the Cloud, and a Fuzzy Lookup Add-in for Microsoft Excel 2010.

Cool stuff.  Seems to be worth visiting it every few weeks to see what they add.
