Help Microsoft BI Development team to Build next version of AdventureWorks databases
Until SQL Server 2000 you may be familiar with pubs & northwind sample databases that were available along with SQL Server installation and since release of SQL 2005 the scenario has been changed for Sample databases.The version of AdventureWorks that is distributed with SQL Server 2005 is different from earlier versions AdventureWorks. If you already have a previous version of AdventureWorks, you should install the most recent version so that the queries in other ReportViewer walkthroughs work as expected.
To explain briefly and learn more about using the AdventureWorks sample database, you can search for "AdventureWorks Sample OLTP Database" in SQL Server 2005 Books Online. To proceed further Microsoft Product Development team are planning to release next version of AdventureWorks family of databases and community help will be a great help with their input.
So if you have used the AdventureWorks sample databases it would be wonderful if you would go to DBSamples site and file some work items on the Issue Tracker tab for anything you would like to see change. Also, a brief note from the team that if there are things you don't want changed by all means mention that in a work item as well.
Also if you haven't had a chance to work or know about AdventureWorks sample databases it would be great if you could take a look at them now to feedback on the changes you would like to see. Still there is something else exciting for the users to report, if you see existing work items that you feel are important it would be very helpful if you could vote on them.
MSFT Product Developmen Team promising to look at the feedback received from the community starting February 11th 2009 and you will agree that the input received from the communith will guide/help the team to decide on what changes they will be making.
