William Brown from Symmetry Corporation and I will be giving the following session at the upcoming Business Intelligence Conference next October in Seattle:
Performance Management for Projects using Microsoft Project and Office PerformancePoint Server 2007
Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) solution allows the enterprise to create, select, plan and manage projects over their lifespan; it is made up of the following products (Project Professional, Project Server, and Project Portfolio Server 2007). Operational systems such as those built with EPM have a point-in-time view of the world for most of their metrics. As the number and complexity of projects rise, it is critical to be able to easily create trend analysis and other performance management reports. In this session you will learn how to use Microsoft Business Intelligence suite to augment EPM’s suite of built-in operational reports to deliver a broad range of analysis to the entire organization. This approach uses PerformancePoint Server to integrate data from EPM, as well as other systems such as Human Resources. The session will cover the SQL Server Analysis Services cubes that ship with Project Server and how to extend their capabilities by adding additional data and analytics: • Learn how to create PerformancePoint KPIs targeted to project management, exception reporting, and guided analytics. • Discover how to implement a PerformancePoint application using Project Server that can be rolled out to the entire organization. • See how easy it is to create trend analysis reports using PerformancePoint, enabling business users to look at all KPIs over time.
