PerformancePoint is merged with SharePoint

Tags: SharePoint

Hot from the presses! Today Microsoft announced that Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server will not be a separate product in the future, instead it will be incorporated into the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise Edition.

This is some great news for all of us that work with and develop BI solutions.

Microsoft is focusing their BI solutions to three products; Excel, SharePoint and SQL Server. This is due to several factors; BI solutions have been very expensive (read PerformancePoint) and have had hard to reach out to the end-users. By incorporating PerformancePoint into SharePoint these factors will be eliminated - BI for everyone.

As of today MOSS 2007 Enterprise customers can “deploy PerformancePoint […] at no additional cost”.

This will be a game changer for the BI market - competitors, watch out!

Can’t wait to see what they have done with this in SharePoint 14!

Have a nice weekend!
