So, PerformancePoint is slowly but surely growing up into a fully fledged dashboarding environment.
Key new feature that I have seen today is the inclusion of the Sharepoint Connection Framework within PerformancePoint 2010. This basically means that the filters and links between dashboard items are implemented through the Sharepoint glue as apposed to the current custom PerformancePoint 2007 glue.
This opens up a number of new possibilities for filtering dashboards. Including:
- The ability to automatically tie the current user’s login to the dashboard elements. Meaning that finally dashboards can be “seamlessly” targeted to the current user with no fancy filter logic.
- Also means that it is possible to link to practically any Sharepoint Web Part as this is a fully supported sharepoint interface.
