I am pleased to announce the release of a white paper written by Symmetry Corporation entitled: How to Leverage Project Server 2007 with PerformancePoint Server 2007 Monitoring and Analytics.
This white paper provides an overview of the Microsoft PerformancePoint Server software and how it can be used to develop dashboards with the existing relational and analytical databases created with Microsoft Office Project Server 2007. In addition to detailing some advanced techniques for creating analytically rich scorecards, it covers how to organize Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and other best practices.
Sample data files (PerformancePoint Builder Workspace and ProClarity Briefing Book) are also provided for using with corresponding sections of the white paper (see the Readme file for more information).
