Something Missing?

    I think one of the features currently missing from the SQL Server Business Intelligence stack is a tool for the presentation of Analysis Service data to an end-user. As a database management system, SQL Server has always been a back-end tool, meaning that historically it did not focus on the presentation of data. This changed in SQL Server 2000 with the release of Reporting Services, as all of a sudden there was a tool 'out of the box' with SQL Server that could be used to present data. I have been reading more about the project codenamed 'Gemini' that was announced at the recent Business Intelligence conference in Seattle and it sounds like this tool will provide analysts with the interface to Analysis Services they have been dreaming of. Is there a feature that you think is currently missing in SQL Server?
