Dynamics and Business Intelligence: Is PerformancePoint the Answer for Dynamics Reporting?

At Convergence 2008 last month, Microsoft officials worked hard to make the connection between Business Intelligence and Dynamics. At one crowded session, they made the case for PerformancePoint being the tool for enabling BI in the future.

The future may be here sooner than expected, as Microsoft has begun looking to service providers across the globe to carry the torch and make a strong case for adoption.

One of the first to roll out BI capabilities via Dynamics CRM using PerformancePoint Server 2007 is Toronto firm TGO Consulting. "We jumped on it early," says Alan Whitehouse, the agency's lead BI official. The firm already has five customers "in various stages of deployment," says Whitehouse. The customers are in the nonprofit and distribution industries.
