Microsoft Performance Point Server and Sharepoint Portal Server

Filed under: Information — namwar @ 7:05 PM

Microsoft has announced another server software called “Microsoft Performance Point Server“. According to the information available up till now, this server will act as a bridge between Microsoft Office and SQL Server Business Intelligence architecture. So far so good, but don’t you think it looks similar as what Microsoft promised for SharePoint Server? I felt similar too.
I am trying to find out more information regarding the actual reason why Microsoft has brought this new server when SharePoint Portal Server is still there. In the mean while, when I was checking the system requirements of PPS, it says that it requires Windows SharePoint Services and SQL Server 2005. Things are very confusing right now and I will try to find more information about PPS. In the mean while you can take a look at PPS here.
