About the Author

Tim Kashani, founder and CEO of IT Mentors and author, has trained more than 100,000 students worldwide. He builds scorecards to track how many vegetables his son consumes daily. Tim thinks increasing is better. His son wants more information before making a strategic decision on the issue.

 

Ola Ekdahl has worked with PerformancePoint since its early alpha stages, as a trainer, content creator, and author, and has extensive experience developing business intelligence solutions. He’s currently developing a KPI measuring how much catnip his cats can consume. The cats think they should use increasing is better but Ola disagrees.

 

Kevin Beto, a 10-year Microsoft veteran, is currently a test lead on the Microsoft SharePoint BI team. He builds scorecards to track his performance in arm wrestling and twister contests. The calculations and thresholds for these scorecards test the outer limits of performance monitoring and business intelligence.

 

Rachel Vigier is a writer. She has authored two volumes of poetry, a book about dance, and many technical and business works. She uses scorecards to track how many books her family reads. Increasing is definitely better and so far everybody consistently exceeds targets.

In Chapter 7, the section "Understanding and Working with Scoring" alone is worth the purchase of this book. Even though I have read two other PPS 2007 texts, this area was still very confusing to me. In this book it is clearly outlined and even walks through an example doing the calculations manually to make it cystal clear how the score is calculated. I would highly recommend this book to anyone just getting started with PerformancePoint Services or people like me who have been using it for a while with some confusion.

The four authors of PerformancePoint Services 2010 Unleashed have done a great job of giving PerformancePoint 2010 the attention that a fully integrated SharePoint service application, dedicated to business intelligence, deserves. The following are areas that I enjoyed about the book:

-Show where SharePoint Server 2010 now helps to create KPIs, scorecards, reports, and dashboards that meet team and organizational needs.
-New customers to PerformancePoint Services 2010 and business intelligence will find coverage of key concepts in the introduction about performance management methodologies.
-The authors have done well to cover what's new, what's the same, and what was removed as compared to PerformancePoint Server 2007.
-There is a best practices section for each chapter that covers installation, Dashboard Designer for creating a dashboard, data sources, indicators, KPIs, scorecards, page filters, reports, advantages of SharePoint integration, and maintaining a PerformancePoint deployment.
-There are some great diagrams that will help users conceptualize dimensions and measures as they are surfaced as measures in a scorecard.
-I enjoyed drilling into specific areas such as using a SharePoint list as a data source. I used this section as I wrote my own article about connecting Performance Point Services to Oracle data sources using Business Connectivity Services.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

PerformancePoint 2010 is an exciting improvement and this book was well worth the wait. I would recommend it to anyone that is moving to PPS 2010 whether experienced in PPS 2007 or brand new to the product. It will step you through the interfaces with well laid out screenshots at all the appropriate places. The side notes alone are well worth the price of this book.

I was expecting a project based approach to creating Dashboards using Performance Point and SharePoint. This book is basically a rundown of setting up the environment , tools , workspace structure and features. To be honest, I am not quite sure what this book is trying to accomplish and I am no further ahead in my quest to create effective Dashboard solutions.
