SharePoint 2013 has added some beautiful, new themes to their "Change the Look" functionality within Site Settings. And now, the PerformancePoint Services team has added functionality that will pick up those themes and manifest them in published dashboards. This allows enterprises to use SharePoint's out-of-the-box themes, or to create corporate-specific master pages, and know that the specific themes that they create will look beautiful across their grids and scorecards in PerformancePoint.
In SharePoint 2013, PerformancePoint Services added an assembly redirect so that you can use the latest versions of the ADOMD.NET data provider to accomplish scenarios, such as using PowerPivot 2012 workbooks as a data source. We also show you where to get the spPowerPivot.msi, which contains the provider and other SharePoint BI features.
