Following this post: Latest resources for Project Server and PerformancePoint Server Integration, please find below two key content that illustrates the added value for customers of leveraging Project Server 2007 and PerformancePoint Server 2007.

Please find below the summary slide from the deck delivered at the last Business Intelligence Conference.


TechNet Virtual Lab: Enterprise Project Management and Data Visualization using Microsoft BI Tools and Solutions

After completing this lab, you will be better able to understand how to extend Enterprise Project Management (EPM) data using Microsoft business intelligence tools and solutions.

This lab was presented at the Business Intelligence Conference last week. This lab is based on our core Project Portfolio Management VPC released last April which contains the following server products: Project and Portfolio Server 2007, SharePoint Server 2007, PerformancePoint Server and ProClarity Analytics Servers, and SQL Server Reporting Services 2005.

TechNet live webcast: Performance Management Using Project Server 2007 and PerformancePoint Server 2007 Thursday, November 13, 2008 1:00 PM Pacific Time

The Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution allows users in an enterprise environment to create, select, plan, and manage projects over their lifespan. The EPM Solution includes Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007, Project Server 2007, and Project Portfolio Server 2007. Operational systems such as those built with EPM have a point-in-time view of the world for most of their metrics. As the number and complexity of projects rise, it is critical that you are able to create trend analysis and other performance management reports easily. In this webcast, you learn how to use the Microsoft Business Intelligence suite to augment the suite of built-in operational reports in the EPM Solution to deliver a broad range of analysis to the entire organization. This approach uses Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 to integrate data from EPM as well as other internal systems, such as human resources. We also cover the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services cubes that ship with Project Server and discuss how you can extend their capabilities by adding additional data and analytics.

This is a repeat of session CL204 that was delivered last week at the Business Intelligence conference in Seattle.
