BI portal on Sharepoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any templates for a BI front end on sharepoint 2007?
    We are currently building multiple report types in our BI program: SSRS, Performance Point, Excel, etc.
    Built a sharepoint BI Site, and a Report Library for each business unit to store their reports on the site.
    I was wondering if there is anything out there to help track, organize, and provide guidance on how it should be set up on sharepoint.

  • Hi Nali,


    You could use Report Center site template as the BI front on SharePoint 2007.

    Here is a short description for the site template:

    Select this site template when you want to create a site for the creation, management, and delivery of Web pages, dashboards, and key performance indicators (KPIs) that communicate metrics, goals, and business intelligence information. The Report Center site provides a central location for business-intelligence-related information. This template includes special document libraries for storing reports, lists, and connections to external data sources. It also provides access to page templates and Web Parts to help you create pages and lists that contain business information. Within the Report Center, users can search for items by using categories, view a calendar of upcoming reports, and subscribe to reports that are relevant.


    Example use   A Report Center can help you create a live, interactive business intelligence (BI) portal that assembles and displays business information from disparate sources, using integrated BI capabilities such as dashboards, Web Parts, KPIs, and business data connectivity technologies. This site provides users with a single place to find the latest reports, spreadsheets, or KPIs.

    See Default site templates (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointserver/HA101744911033.aspx) for more information.


    Here are some article help you to manage the site for your reference:
