Microsoft SharePoint Server
Microsoft SharePoint Server is a web application platform, first launched in 2001. Although SharePoint was originally built to be a content and document management solution, it grew to be an enterprise level, multipurpose platform. It can be used as a fully functional BI platform, used to centralize different kinds of reports, dashboards and scorecards.
SharePoint offers the following possibilities for your Business Intelligence needs:
- Fully integrate SQL Server Reporting Services to use SharePoint as your reporting portal
- Share PowerPivot workbooks through PowerPivot galleries on you SharePoint site
- Use the PerformancePoint Services application to provide business users with interactive scorecards and dashboards
- Use web-apps to integrated office documents and utilize web-based browsing for these documents.
