Power View, Data Alert and other features with SQL Server 2014 CTP2

Report Integration for SQL Server 2012 and SharePoint 2010 was described comprehensively in my latest book:

The new features Power View and Data Alerts were treated in two complete chapters:

Chapter 6: Power View and Reporting Services
Six hands-on exercises

Chapter 7: Self service Data Alerts in SSRS 2012
Three hands-on exercises

The SharePoint 2010 used in the book should work equally well with SQL Server 2014 CTP2.

SQL Server 2014 CTP1 installation was described here.

Programs have been updated and new versions have appeared.
SQL Server 2014 is now in CTP2

Now how does one start working with features like Power View and Data Alerts?

You need to install and work with recent versions.

You need the following :
Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint®, Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2)

You can download the above from here:

Details from the above site are here:

·         The SQL Server 2014 CTP2 Reporting Services Add-in for Microsoft SharePoint technologies deploys the Reporting Services user interface pages and features on a SharePoint web front-end server.

After you install the Reporting Services Add-in and configure your servers for integration, you can publish Reporting Services content to a SharePoint library and then view and manage those documents directly from a SharePoint site.
