Microsoft's new concept of managed self-service BI mostly refers to combining SQL Server 2008 R2 with the new PowerPivot plug-ins to push hefty row sets to Excel 2010 or to SharePoint 2010. The key to making this work is the use of column-level compression in the data set, which allows PowerPivot to process millions of rows in the same amount of time it would ordinarily take Excel to process only thousands of rows. This is an excellent software with many uses!
One of my absolute favorite R2 features is the new Report Parts, found in Report Builder 3.0. Report Parts allow you to publish the different sections of your report to a centralized library, where others can grab them to include in their own reports. Charts, tables, and other segments become components that you can plug into any report you wish. Let's say you create a chart with complex calculations embedded. Maybe it incorporates business rules or complex layout formulas. If you publish it as a Report Part, everyone else will be able to call upon the same chart in their reports.
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard R2 is a simple software with a simple explanation, but it should give you an idea of the types of actions that can be accomplished. Note too that StreamInsight is not an out-of-the-box feature, but must be written into .Net applications. While StreamInsight will take some spin-up for coders to get used to, they'll find that Microsoft has really smoothed the way.
