Why Read This Report

Microsoft's visionary approach and massive market presence make the September 2007 launch of Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 a significant event for the Business Performance Solutions (BPS) market. Microsoft is endeavoring to make business performance information ubiquitous via Office, while delivering enterprise-class functionality that will appeal to large organizations as well as the midmarket. The initial release puts Microsoft into the Strong Performer category. Considerably more refinement and prepackaged content will be needed before Microsoft can move up among the category leaders.
