HASH(0x9da1a1ec) out of 5 stars You gotta be looking to work at the big end of town Jan. 15 2012
By Robert D. Crane - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a very worthwhile read and reference but it does have a limited audience. That audience is restricted to those with access to the high end version of SharePoint Server 2010. Basically SharePoint Server 2010 will all the options enabled. It is however a very worthwhile reference for the simple reason that there are few books that dive into that level of detail on these high end features of SharePoint Enterprise.

Initially I was going to say that this book focused more on talking about the capabilities of BI (business intelligence) in SharePoint Server but as I got more into the book I found there were more and more hands on examples which made it really great. The only problems with these examples is that they require a high level of product and setup to really take advantage of but they certainly do give insight into what BI is possible with SharePoint especially when combined with SQL server.

This book is therefore great for people looking to understand the high end features of SharePoint Server 2010 (and to some extend Office 365) but it does require an investment in products such as Visio, SQL Reporting and so on that in many cases are not readily obtained or implemented. This is certainly not a book for end users and is more aimed at the IT Professional looking to bring the integration required for BI into the workplace. However, for the IT professional looking to scale up their SharePoint skills to the higher level of product and potentially to the abilities provided by Office 365 this is more than a worthwhile reference for the library.

HASH(0x9dbd569c) out of 5 stars Great book that shows what you can do with SharePoint for your BI projects Sept. 13 2011
By VidMa - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is great introduction level book for SharePoint admins or BI Developers who wants to understand how to get the most out of SharePoint in BI environment. This book gives you a very good introduction to Excel Services, PowerPivot for Excel and SharePoint, Visio and Performance Point services. There are many step-by-step guides that show you to work with each BI tool.
For example, for PowerPivot this book has step by step guide on how to load data into PowerPivot for Excel from database, Windows Azure Marketplace or clipboard, how to write simple DAX formulas, how to create charts/reports and how to publish and use your workbook in SharePoint.
Overall this is great book!
