Business Scorecard Manager Released
Nice-ish tool, pure scorecarding
Microsoft buys Proclarity, one of the premier BI analysis tools for SSAS
Performance Point is released.
The product is a horrible mishmash of 3 products.
Proclarity, unchanged, with it's own installer.
PerformancePoint Planning. Very much a version one, this product is MS's first and last attempt to actually attack true (financial) performance management
PerformancePoint Monitoring: BSM, plus new analytic charts and grids sourced from Proclarity. As a V2, a nice product. Some technical limitations especially when coming to Sharepoint integration though.
The product "set" carries a $30 000 plus $195 per user price tag, and uptake is VERY limited.
Proclarity and PPS Planning are canned. Free licences to these and PPS Monitoring (which is NOT canned) are rolled into MOSS Enterprise licences.
Sharepoint 2010 is released. One of the Enterprise features is Performance Point Services, which is a VASTLY improved Performance Point Monitoring. Great product, except that it's (other immensely useful) Time Intelligence calendars ONLY work with calendar dates. (A shortcoming I'm addressing with new development now)
