Project Crescent is a new data visualization tool that will be part of the next version of SQL Server – code named Denali.
“Crescent” is the code name given to the new reporting/visualization tools and it looks like the name may change by the time the product is released. Crescent is expected to revolutionize ad-hoc reporting requirements by providing users new user experience and allow them to present the data in new and exciting ways.
Experts who got early access to Crescent says that Crescent expands the Self Service BI capabilities currently available with PowerPivot for Excel. Crescent provides drag-and-drop ad-hoc reporting capability. Crescent is not available with the current release of Denali (CTP1) but is expected to be part of CTP2.

What is more exciting is to know that Crescent is entirely built on Silverlight.
