PeformancePoint dropped

That’s it, PerformancePoint Server is dropped as of now – Planning is being dumped entirely and Dashboarding / Scorecarding is being incorporated as a free add-on to Sharepoint.

This kind of makes my wrestling getting the product installed a bit of a waste, but such is life. It’s disappointing to see the Planning go – it wasn’t perfect but it had a very user friendly interface in Excel 2007 – though less so for developers at the back end.

From a BI point of view it makes sense – Planning is still very much a niche application, and doesn’t sit well with the “BI to the masses” philosophy that Microsoft are trying to market. But I bet there’s a lot of annoyed consultancies who had staked their future on PPS.
