This add-in is "MapPoint Add-in for SQL Server". It's a very innovative way for some of the key business analysis KPI. For presenting MIS related information, as of this draft, I am not able to think anything better than this. Just use the data already stored in SQL Server and connect it to maps (available for US and EUR only) and it's good to go for analysis.
This would definitely require data in some specific structure to make it usable for this add-in. Also it would require a Mappoint installation.
From a developer perspective, this is one of the best tool to use for practicing and envisioning results of your Spatial data. This add-in has a great support for spatial query development and analysis. Generally some front-end is required to consume and display spatial-data which is generally targeted for geometry, and what better can be a consumer of this than a real map itself.
If not for anything else, I would prefer it for getting a good hold / correcting and analysing my spatial query skills and spatial data analysis.
