UniqueWorld hosts Sydney's monthly SharePoint User Group at their office on 24 Campbell Street near Town Hall. It's a great chance to meet other SharePoint users, listen to speakers talk about SharePoint and related activities, eat pizza and drink beer.

Tonight's talk was about Business Intelligence in Office 2007. The speaker was Grant Paisley...From the invitation blurb:

Grant Paisley is the Chief Solutions Architect for Angry Koala (http://ak.com.au/), a Microsoft Partner specialising
in Business Intelligence Solutions. Grant is a SQL Server MVP, and president of
the Sydney SQL Server User Group. With more than 10 years of consulting
experience in Business Intelligence and data warehousing Grant has worked on
many complex projects and produced a wide range of solutions.

Grant's presentation was very interesting and I'll be blogging about it in detail tomorrow evening. Essentially he gave a rundown of ways Excel 2007 can interact with OLAP data, talked about Excel Services, integrated reports in SharePoint, dashboards, and demonstrated some useful Excel add-ons.

If you're in Sydney, do yourself a favour and sign up for the monthly events. Details available at Unique World's website at http://www.uniqueworld.com.au/news/events/eventlist.aspx.
