BI for the Masses: An Update

  • Monitoring (formerly Business Scorecard Manager),
  • Analysis (formerly the Proclarity suite of analysis tools), and
  • Planning (an all-new financial planning and analysis tool, incorporating Excel and SQL Server).
  1. These solutions focus on Microsoft Dynamics as the line-of-business data stores against which these performance management tools are reporting.
  2. I am very interested, but not particularly clear on, the intended integration between Management Reporter and Office (Excel client? SharePoint hooks? etc.).
  3. I also am a bit surprised that Enterprise Reporting, although it shows up on the roadmap and is arguably the most sophisticated FP&A (financial planning and analysis) tool in Microsoft’s arsenal now that PerformancePoint Planning was retired, has not had an update to its main web page, as of this writing, since 14 September 2004.
  • PerformancePoint will not be available for sales after 1 April 2009.
  • If you own the SharePoint Enterprise Client Access License (eCAL) with software assurance, you will automatically accrue rights to the Monitoring and Analysis web parts.
  • PerformancePoint Monitoring and Analytics web parts will debut with Office 14.
