Installing onto MOSS 2007: First Steps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning all,

    I'm taking my first steps into the Microsoft Business Intelligence arena and have been asked to look at Microsoft PerformancePoint Server 2007. My reading has indicated that this used to be a standalone product and has been rolled into SharePoint Office Server as of April last year.  What I'm having some trouble finding out is, how does an individual go about adding the BI functionality of PerformancePoint onto a new SharePoint/ MOSS install.

    I've seen a lot of literature around the Service Pack 3 (via the pinned thread in this forum) but don't know if these need to be applied to a brand new MOSS install or if they need the standalone PerformancePoint server installed first.

    Any guidance is appreciated.

  • Firstly welcome to the MS BI arena.

    You are right, PerformancePoint server 2007 was a separate installation/product but it did require SharePoint 2007. Now PerformancePoint Server 2007's Monitoring part is rolled into SharePoint Server 2010 as PerformancePoint Services.

    If you are using MOSS 2007 you need to download PerformancePoint Server 2007 setup from Microsoft and install.

    If you are using SharePoint 2010, refer to this detailed guide to setup PerformancePoint Services.

    Regarding Service Pack 3, it can only be applied to PerfomancePoint Server 2007 (which is, if already installed) and not MOSS 2007.

    Hope that helps.

  • Yes you need to download and install PerformancePoint 2007. But SharePoint server 2007 must be already installed in order to successfully install and use Monitoring Server.

  • Hi Umair

    many thanks for the warm welcome.  I'm on SP2007, apologies for not mentioning that.  So, am I right in thinking that I need to: -

    Download and install PerformancePoint 2007, then patch it entirely?

    Is there no SharePoint overlap at all in the respective 2007 versions?

  • Hi ,

     

        Yes. You need to download PPS 2007 and additionally install the patches seperately.

  • I'm assuming then that my first install would be this one?

  • Is there a free standalone or is PP2007 still a pay for product?
