I finally get to drip some of the screens and features of PerformancePoint Server 2007 Monitoring. Right on! Here is a snapshot of what the Builder tool looks like. It has the snazy Office 12 Ribbon bar. Usability is a bit different from BSM, but the learning curve isn’t that bad. It has a lot of improvements. Have fun staring at the small picture… [:P]
Things I like
- Scorecard Preview!
- Categories or Folders now show
- Aggregated Rollups
- Centralized Report Views
- Exposing the elements of KPIs and Scorecard in the far right pane.
- Easier connections to Excel.
- Consume an Excel spreadsheet and publish to the server
- Scorecard and KPI templates
- Lots of drag and drop features, some are not exposed very well.
- A ton of other goodies too
