Serves as the worldwide source for access to Microsoft's SQL Server 2008 software suite for academic purpose- teaching and research. The consortium has been established to enable universities around the world to access enterprise technology without having to maintain the necessary hardware and software on their own campus. The consortium provides a wide range of business intelligence development tools (e.g. data mining, cube building, business reporting) as well as a number of large, realistic datasets from Sam's Club, Dillard's, and Tyson Foods.
