The Social Enterprise

I'm sure that at one point or another Microsoft and will do what they do best, copy catch up with facebook and bring some of that social goodness to the enterprise through their Sharepoint Collaboration Platform. In the mean-time how about taking a look at some of these abuzzing platforms that are bringing the Social Enterprise to a Corporation near you now.

New Opportunities

It's been a bit hectic as of late. A lot going on in both my personal and professional life. But, it can be summarized as follows.

New Apartment + New Car + New Job = New Opportunities

As things settle down I'm sure I will ramp up once again on posting. For now, I'm back to finding the right paint for my closet interior...

TFS Excel Reports Date Filtering Resolved

Back in September of last year I blogged about an issue I was facing with the task burndown excel report and workbooks that ship with TFS.

Brian Harry & Aaron Bjork from Microsoft were very helpful in lending their help to troubleshoot this issue. However, until last week we were ready to give up hope. That is until I stumbled upon the solution thanks, to some comments Aaron made.

Here's the deal, the excel filtering issue I was observing from TFS is actually a bug in Sql Server 2008R2 Analysis Services and is described here

It can be resolved by applying one of the Cumulative Updates on Sqlserver2008r2.
