Better together: PerformancePoint Services and other Microsoft products

This month on the PerformancePoint Services blog we'll focus on techniques involving other Microsoft products. For example,

Have a great dashboard idea? Want to prototype it?
Did you know that PowerPivot models can be used with PerformancePoint Services? You can get started with all the PerformancePoint Services features using a self-service model. Also, as we’ve seen recently on BizIntelligence.TV, PowerPivot can source data from your calendar and Twitter, so understanding how to connect the two is a good starting point for other dashboard-building adventures.


If you'd like to hear about something specifically, or have any great "better together" tips to offer, please let us know in this post's comments. Thanks, and have a great month!
