Start Minding PerformancePoint Server
Some time in the next couple of months, Microsoft is likely to release an updated
CTP of its forthcoming PerformancePoint
product. A business performance monitoring, analysis and planning
application destined to hook deeply into SharePoint, Office and Windows Server,
PerformancePoint Server could really shake up a business intelligence marketplace
currently served by heavyweights like Cognos and Business Objects.
What's important about the next CTP release is that it'll be the first to include
analytics technology acquired from Microsoft's purchase last year of BI software
There's a lot here to like -- particularly for companies struggling to integrate
BI packages with their software stack.
We'll be keeping an eye on PerformancePoint over the next few months, and so
should you. Look for more coverage of this product and Microsoft's efforts to
boost BI and data management capability in its Server products over the next
Does your company employ a BI platform? What things would you need in PerformancePoint
Server to consider a migration? E-mail me at [email protected].
