New CTP for Microsoft Codename "Dallas", catalog for Data. Data as services. Expose data sources through the cloud.

Dallas Service Explorer used to find and configure services, preview data, see in Atom format, invoke as RESTful service, pull into Excel into new PowerPivot add-in through Atom.

Uses Astoria (OData now). Demo used NASA data service. Showed creation of a service proxy that creates the data structure for you. Quick demo took about a minute to write a WPF app that called the service, bound to a data grid. Week UI for a WPF demo, but he showed something that UI designers built that we needed 3d glasses to see.
