Throughout this series, we use Contoso as our scenario customer as we explore the features that make up the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 platform. Contoso is a shipping company that delivers all kinds of items around the globe, from small individual items to large manufactured items. Contoso has seen growth in its business over the past years, especially in the movement of goods from China around the world.

These documents are now common as part of insurance claims or parts of quotes. This growth in unstructured data has led Contoso to look at options for its storage, access, security, and searching needs.
The business intelligence (BI) platform that Contoso is building can be used in a variety of ways by its employees using technologies built into the 2007 Microsoft Office system. In this webcast, we review the integrated reporting and analytics options available to Contoso, including:
