The Microsoft Business Intelligence Stack - the future of
productivity starts here
Microsoft Business Intelligence Overview
Align your Business Intelligence solution with the business
drivers and performance measures in your organisation.
Whether at a strategic, tactical or operation level, Microsoft
offers tools and technologies in SharePoint Server and the SQL
Server platform to unlock vital information from the vast amounts
of data accumulating in your organisation.

Dashboards and Scorecards
Unlocking the management information in a vast amount of
transactional, process-centric data has not always been easy!
Microsoft BI solutions allow data in disparate systems to be
combined into dashboards and scorecards to aid strategic planning
and performance management. Deployment via SharePoint Server
provides browser-based access to information that would otherwise
be locked away in ERP and other lines of business systems. Data
exploration features allow users to analyse performance measures to
establish the root cause.
Do your employees spend too much time looking for the
information they need to perform effectively in their roles?
Through SharePoint Server, employees can more easily share
information with each other. Whether it be structured, such as in
reports and spread sheets, or unstructured, such as in documents
and in presentations, information is centrally managed and may be
highly categorised and easily searched.
Traditionally, self-service reporting has been fraught with
difficulties. Not only have report writers been asked to learn
specialist reporting tools, they have been expected to master the
esoteric reporting structures in the underlying databases of ERP,
CRM and other systems. This has lead to data integrity issues
(different report writers getting different results based on their
interpretation of the data), and a high dependency on IT.
Microsoft BI solutions allow information workers to use familiar
tools, such as Excel and Report Builder, to pull together and
analyse data for their own needs. Data integrity issues are greatly
reduced as the tools provide "drag and drop" report design over
simplified but robust and highly scalable information
Electronic Forms and Workflow
Would you like better management of your business forms, such as
Leave and Expense Forms, or New Product Development?
The traditional approach to email or paper-based forms is time
consuming and leads to a lack of visibility in the organisation.
SharePoint Server provides electronic forms management, providing
high visibility and streamlined processing. This may include
automatic workflow routing and integration back into ERP, CRM and
other line of business applications.
Having better understood how your organisation is performing,
would you like to have more insight into why?
Microsoft BI solutions allow you to use familiar tools, such as
Excel and SharePoint Server, to dig deeper into sales, inventory,
financial and other information to better understand why your
business is performing the way it is. Data mining tools allow this
to be extended to look for hidden trends and to predict future
Would you like to provide better access to information from ERP,
CRM and other line of business applications?
SQL Server Reporting Services is Microsoft's market-leading
reporting solution, offering intuitive ad-hoc reporting for
business users and a powerful report writing environment for IT
professionals and developers. Flexible deployment options mean that
the same report may be run on an ad-hoc basis, or automatically
delivered in a variety of formats to a variety of destinations,
including email, traditional file shares and SharePoint Server.
Data Integration and Data Warehousing
Do you need to combine information from a number of disparate
systems to gain better insight into organisation?
Data warehousing solutions can bring data together from
virtually any source, providing an integrated, optimised reporting
repository. Microsoft data warehousing solutions on the SQL Server
platform offer highly scalable, performance and availability.
