Nothing in a modern enterprise gives you as much decision power
as Business Intelligence (BI).
Microsoft SharePoint provides its own Business
Intelligence Center, which includes KPI's, scorecards and
dashboards to give you an overview of how certain aspects of your
business is doing.
What separates SharePoint from other Business Intelligence
solutions, is that it can utilize and combine a multitude of
data sources out of the box. Whether it be
SharePoint itself, a Line of Business application,
a web service or even some Excel workbooks.
