At the SQLPASS keynote yesterday, it was announced that the new name for Crescent is Power view. I’m not sure the name is better, but it certainly fits with the Microsoft Power/point/pivot naming convention!
New features demonstrated were sorting, changes to scales and presentation stacks, and they finally confirmed the export to Powerpoint functionality. Its looking great!
They also demonstrated their direction with the product for a later version than SQL Sever 2012, and this included a demo of Power View using touch enabled devices- yes, a demo using an iPad!
