Played two hours with this on the just released SQL 2008 R2 CTP nov.
Two hours effective work was enough to
- install the product (including reading how to do it),
- installing IIS on Windows 7 (you need a modern advanced OS)
- implementing security
- adding a model (PoC) with a hierarchy
- reading most of the documentation
Books on-line is sparse, so I haven't really done a real walk-through yet. I hope a tutorial is coming soon, or I might post one here (after getting to know the thing better).
Wonder if I can run a hybrid model where I can have some entities work as in the "registry"-model, and some as in the "Central Master Data Repository"-model.
I would like to put all my meta data into this thing, hope it is mature enough.
I went to a couple of sessions on SQL PASS, but they were introductory, can't be many that have experience with this thing.
Anyhow, have a nice day.
