In a partnership agreement with Pragmatic Works, SSWUG.ORG’s virtual class is designed to help you use SharePoint 2010 to bring Business Intelligence to the forefront for your users and customers.
Mark Stacey, course instructor and founder of Pragmatic Works’ South Africa office, will start by showing how to configure SharePoint 2010 and explaining the parts all interconnect. Then, Mark will dive into PerformancePoint, explaining how to deliver actionable scorecards for your executives and management team. He will also describe how Reporting Services can deliver beautiful reports and dashboards for your users in a SharePoint environment. Finally, Mark will demonstrate how to use PowerPivot to give your users self-service BI for their departments and how to use Excel Services for visualization.
The target of this class is developers, architects or IT professionals who have basic experience with Reporting Services and SSAS cube-browsing already. Very little time is spent in the class on the basics of Reporting Services and general cube concepts. No previous knowledge of SharePoint is required for this class.
Throughout the 30-day course, you will learn how to:
Setup and configure SharePoint 2010 for Business Intelligence
Create and deploy reports in Reporting Services in SharePoint
Develop dashboards and scorecards in PerformancePoint
Use Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 for self-service Business Intelligence
