Description

Back in July we posted a video of the Accruent dev team chatting about the good work they’d done on their next-generation real-estate management.  In this segment we see Ben Riga doing a full walkthrough of the application during Sanjay Parthasarathy’s keynote at this year’s Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in July.  You may remember Ben from another cool Windows Presentation Foundation video we posted last year.

In this demo Ben demonstrates the business value of integrating Line of Business applications using Office 2007, Virtual Earth and Windows Presentation Foundation on Windows Vista.  Specifically, the scenario follows along as a Retail Store Operations Manager uses Personal Productivity and Team Collaboration tools as well as advanced data visualization to make decisions about store lease renewals.  Integration of information from disparate line of business systems directly into personal productivity tools such as Word and Outlook substantially increase information worker self-sufficiency and effectiveness driving individual impact.  Collaboration tools that integrate line of business information to provide composite views of the business keep co-workers, partners and customers in sync.  Advanced data visualization provides the right information to more people ensuring knowledge discovery and insight.

      I haven't watched the video yet, it sounds really promissing, but is this an actual real world scenario or more of a Contoso.com thing that only exists in scenarios and study guides?
