My First Real Experiment with Power View – Built From a PowerPivot V2 XLSX!
(Running on our New V2 Cloud PowerPivot Platform)
Lots of Work Pays Off
The #1 question I hear every day is “when will Pivotstream offer support for V2 on their cloud platform?” And in fact, that’s maybe the #1 question that I ask of the team every day, too.
There’s a lot of demand for it, given all the new bells and whistles in the V2 release. But we’re no longer a fledgling little operation – we can’t just upgrade everyone overnight. Actually, we could, but that would be irresponsible – we have to make sure none of our customers get burned in the process, and huge software releases like V2 have a tendency to be… finicky. If we upgrade everyone and things start breaking, saying “it’s Microsoft’s fault” is not an answer – we have to hold ourselves to a higher bar.
So our V2 cloud platform is a completely separate and parallel investment – new hardware, new domains, new base URL’s, etc. A lot of time and money, in other words. So if you’ve been wondering “what the heck are they waiting for,” now you know.
