Business Performance Optimisation
Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 is key to our Business Performance Optimisation solution in helping to deliver advanced visualisation that can help you spot trends and opportunities easily, allowing for better planning for your business.
In a recent press release Microsoft issues the following statement: "Based on customer feedback, we have decided to consolidate the scorecard, dashboard and analytical capabilities from Office PerformancePoint Server into Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Enterprise and rebrand them as PerformancePoint Services for SharePoint. In addition, in mid-2009, we will release Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 3 (SP3), which will include updates to the current product’s planning module. Thereafter, we will no longer continue with a stand-alone version of Office PerformancePoint Server 2007."
