More on PerformancePoint – Now Free If You Have SharePoint Enterprise CALs

Posted by workerthread on January 24, 2009

So I was a little too quick off the mark with yesterday’s post on the retirement of PerformancePoint.  The bit I missed, due to the full announcements coming out later in the day from Microsoft is that if you already run SharePoint with Enterprise CALs, PerformancePoint Analytics and Scorecarding can be used with no additional licence cost.  You can read more about the strategy here.

This is good news and will certainly be an attractive option for organisations already investing in BI technologies based on SQL Server Analysis Services, Reporting Services etc.
