Deep Dive on PowerPivot Technologies
This session provides an in-depth technical review of the PowerPivot architecture – deeper than you have ever seen before. We look at the PowerPivot Excel addin, its various components, how they interact, and the ways that they communicate with the server. Also covering various aspects of in-memory VertiPaq engine behavior. On the server side, we look at how PowerPivot uses the new SharePoint 2010 shared service architecture and how it accomplishes its main capabilities: data access (connections to PowerPivot data), data refresh, report gallery (with its various Microsoft Silverlight controls) and its usage infrastructure and reporting system.
