Update:  Our own Becky Isserman will present a session on Data Visualization in SharePoint 2013.

Abstract:  In this session we will discuss various Business Intelligence Tools, such as PerformancePoint, PowerView, and PowerPivot.  We will answer a series of important questions, such as which tools requires analysis services?  Which tool is dependent on SQL Services Reporting Services?  What are the minimum hardware requirements for each tool?  In the end we will look at some dashboards built in each tool type and discuss scenarios for each tools use.  In the end attendees should understand the difference between each tool, the dependencies, and how each tool is applicable in the real world.
