Microsoft Business Intelligence delivers on the vision of “Pervasive Insight” as witnessed by the higher than average deployment of BI solutions recorded by our customers. By providing end user BI capabilities through familiar Microsoft Office experiences such as SharePoint and Excel, we empower an entirely new segment of business users to build and consume rich BI solutions as part of their everyday work. Delivering the server-side capabilities to enable self-service BI via SharePoint Server and SQL Server gives IT a common, quality data foundation, feature-rich collaborative decision making environment, and empowers IT oversight and insight into what solutions are being built and who is using them.
