2 What is Business Intelligence?  Any information that pertains to the history, current status or future projections of a business organization  Systems that provide directed background data and reporting tools to support and improve the decision-making process

3 The Three Stages of Business Intelligence 1. Organizing, cleansing and collecting data 2. Delivering the data in a consistent and appropriate, meaningful and easy-to-use format 3. Using the data to make effective decisions

4 Stage 1: Organizing Data  Use Business Intelligence Studio (BIDS) to create SSAS databases  Cubes: The basic unit of storage and analysis in Analysis Services  Dimensions: a category for analyzing business data, ex: States,Cities  Measures: column in a table that you'd like to analyze, ex: sales

5 Stage 2: Delivering Data  A team effort – need at least business analyst with a good knowledge of data warehouse  Design of dashboards critical – consult a web designer if possible  Establish governance rules upfront – only stored procedures, all connections in libraries, etc.  Enlist business power users to manage rights of BI objects  Test user acceptance at draft stage

9 SharePoint 2010 BI Cons  More work to get started—have to build or purchase a risk analysis calculation engine, for instance, while other products offer this OTB  SharePoint 2010 setup and admin requires senior IT support  Requires SharePoint Enterprise license  Need to be a entirely Microsoft shop to reap the full benefits  New kid on the block

10 When to Use SharePoint BI?  When your organization is looking for a long term solution  When you are an all-Microsoft shop  When flexibility and extensibility are paramount concerns  When your users make extensive use of Excel for modeling critical data  When delivering data worldwide is important

11 What Comprises SharePoint BI?  Excel Services  PowerPivot for Excel 2010  Performance Point  SQL Server Reporting Services  Business Connectivity Services  Visio Graphic Services

12 Supporting BI Services  Enterprise Search  Secure Store Service  Metadata Service

13 Business Intelligence Design Apps  Business Intelligence Studio – for report and cube creation  Report Builder – for report creation by business users  Dashboard Designer – the client part of Performance Point  SharePoint Designer 2010 – for Business Connectivity connections, etc.  Visio 2010 – for creating data-based diagrams

16 SharePoint 2010 BI Architecture Software Viewpoint

17 BI Deployed as Service Apps  No longer a separate SSP website (managed via Central Administration)  Pick and choose the services you need  Web applications can consume services on an individual basis  Deploy multiple instances of the same SA  Reuse SA instances across multiple Web applications in farm

18 Service Model – Architectural View Service Proxy Web Part, Pages (Service Consumer) *.SVC’s, PowerShell Cmdlets (Service Consumer)

19 What is a Service Application?  Provides data or computing resources  Exposes administrative interfaces  Uses resources like application pools  Runs one or more instances  Contains the configured user accounts the service will run as  Contains connection details for the configured databases utilized by the service

20 Service Application Proxy  A proxy is a virtual entity that connects Web applications to service applications  Consumers interact with the service via proxies  Installed on the WFE servers  Associated with a service application  Knows how to connect to the service on the app servers via WCF services  Talks to a round-robin load balancer when the service is installed on multiple app servers

21 Service Application Proxy Groups  A proxy group is a group of Service Application proxies that are selected for a web application  By default, all SA proxies are included in the default proxy group  When you create a web app you can: select the default proxy group create a custom proxy group by selecting which SA proxies should be included
