Extending the Business Intelligence Conversation with Twitter

In an effort to coalesce all of the discussions that are taking place across the Social Network about PerformancePoint Server 2007 and our other Business Intelligence applications and platforms, I’ve created a Twitter alias: microsoftbi. I’ll be linking to relevant blog posts, videos, Web pages, and forum threads that offer new or interesting takes on Microsoft’s various Business Intelligence platforms and applications in an effort to direct more traffic to those links as well as to provide a communications channel for our customers that will go directly to our User Assistance team of writers.

Twitter is all about having a conversation, so feel free to “tweet” your feedback on PerformancePoint Server 2007 to me by inserting @microsoftbi at the start of your tweet. If you’d like to send me a private message, begin your tweet with “d microsoftbi” and fire away – just be sure you don’t exceed the 140 character maximum. Here are a few examples:

1. Ping me with a tweet that everyone on Twitter can see:

“@microsoftbi Love the product but need more scenarios on what’s possible report-wise.”

2. Ping me with a private message:

“d microsoftbi How about creating a user scenario featuring variance reporting?”

You don’t have to limit your questions or comments to PerformancePoint Server either. Any communication related to Microsoft’s Business Intelligence products is welcome and encouraged. All you have to do is join Twitter and “follow” @microsoftbi.
