Performance Point in MOSS 2007

    Question

  • I read somewhere that Performance Point Server is now included in MOSS 2007 Enterprise - is this true? 

    If so, is there a service pack for those of us that had MOSS 2007 Enterprise before it was combined - how do we get it?


    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    It is not true.

    All that has changed is the licensing. You are now allowed to use the PerformancePoint Server 2007 product if you own a license for MOSS 2007 Enterprise. 

    MOSS 2007 still does not contain Performance Point Server. PerformancePoint Server is still a separate product (and still has - because of that - its own forums).

    MS have publicly said (several months ago, when changing the licensing) that *certain functions* that are at present in the PerformancePoint Server product will be included in the next version of SharePoint (SharePoint 2010).

  • Hi Mike,

    Yes, your understanding is correct.   PerformancePoint Services (Monitoring Pillar of current version) will be part of SharePoint 2010 and customer will be enabling at site collection or site level.

  • I just wanted to add that I just chatted with a http://www.microsoft.com/bi rep and he gave me this info: 

    "Your Microsoft Partner would be the best resource for information about the solution and adding the functionality to your current licensing.  Our partners are the product and licensing experts.  You can also contact our Platform Support Team at 800-936-4900."

    SharePoint customers who currently have an enterprise license agreement with software assurance can now download PerformancePoint Server 2007 at no additional cost .
    For more information, see How to get PerformancePoint Server.
