About Intelligent Insights on PerformancePoint

Hi my name is Ben Tamblyn and I'm a Solution Channel Development Manager here at Microsoft. I'm responsible for helping our partners build and align their business to Microsoft's business intelligence solution offering. Prior to joining Microsoft I worked primarily in a consulting guise and spent 1 extremely long year completing my MBA back in 2003. I've been at Microsoft almost 4 years now and spent some time working as an IW solution sales specialist within financial services.

This blog is designed to provide people with an interface into Microsoft's UK Performance Management business. It will be a repository for news, and key information from across the business including prodcasts with key people, access to early code and BETA versions of PerformancePoint as we approach launch in 2007, and finally an opportunity for you guys out there to ask questions of me.
