PerformancePoint Server 2007

Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday unveiled PerformancePoint Server 2007, which would eventually become the focal point for all of the company’s business intelligence tools. Scheduled for release in beta in November, PerformancePoint Server is expected to leverage analysis and reporting capabilities in SQL Server 2005 database and present information to a company’s knowledge workers through Office 2007.

In particular, PerformancePoint would present data and allow it to be manipulated in Excel, which should reduce the learning curve since most workers are familiar with the spreadsheet application. For IT, PerformancePoint would include business-modeling capabilities to develop performance metrics that would be consistent across an organization.
