About the Author

Shahar Prish (Redmond, WA) is originally from Tel-Aviv, Isreal and always dreamed of becoming a Microsoft employee. He worked for a company that developed Data Visualization applications over Analysis Services (MS’s OLAP Server), which was eventually purchased by Microsoft. The company extended job offers to the original employees, and several months later the company shipped Max 3.0, which was re-branded as Microsoft Data Analyzer. After that, Shahar and his family moved from Tel-Aviv to Redmond to work for Microsoft. A few months before work began on the Office 2007 rollout, the concept of an Excel Services server started to form, and Shahar was moved to work specifically on that product development. Throughout the past 5 years, Shahar has worked with some of the best and the brightest to develop the first version of  the revolutionary Excel Services. He provides information and previews of Excel Services through his blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/cumgranosalis.
