Start Minding PerformancePoint Server

Some time in the next couple of months, Microsoft is likely to release an updated CTP of its forthcoming PerformancePoint Server 2007 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 vendor ProClarity. 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 year.

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].
