Overview

The book shows how to successfully build and deliver Business Intelligence (BI) applications using SharePoint 2010. It does not assume previous SharePoint experience, since many new users come from database and other backgrounds.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to what SharePoint will do for your business intelligence and information management capabilities; BI projects include:
    • i. PerformancePoint dashboards
    • ii. Interactive reporting with excel
    • iii. Power Pivot advanced analytics
    • iv. Visio strategy maps and heat map analytics
  • Information management projects include:
    • i. Report and document sharing for collaborative reporting
    • ii. Using SharePoint lists and libraries for data sources repositories in business intelligence projects
    • iii. How to control sprawl of data sources, reports and business intelligence content with permissions and workflow approvals.
    • iv. Connecting your data sources with Business Connectivity Services.
  • Best practices for configuring and securing SharePoint 2010 business intelligence applications.
  • Integrating Office 2010 and SharePoint for intelligent reporting. This specifically will cover how the Office user or analyst can create reports and dashboards right from within MS Office 2007 and 2010 and publish them to SharePoint.
  • Implementing advanced analytics through PerformancePoint and business connectivity services. These analytics will provide time based analysis, forecasting, mapping, drill through and other advanced visualizations.
  • Tuning and scaling SharePoint SQL databases and applications to support the new load that the reports, analytics and dashboards will place on the system. I am unaware of any book that covers this topic.
  • Best practices for planning and implementing your SharePoint business intelligence project plan.

This is a 24 hour trainer book, so it will have an explanation of the topics in each lesson along with a walkthrough. Each specific lesson is targeted to take about an hour each and accompanied by a video walking the reader through the lesson and the step by step "Try It" section at the end of the lesson.
