Norm's PerformancePoint Server Blog – Training

I’ve got my plane tickets booked for the August 18 – 22 training in Denver.   Monitoring has received much wider adoption levels, probably due to the integration with existing Proclarity customers and product maturity.  Not sure how many Biz # (predecessor to PP Planning) customers there were out there…

Planning should be a good field for extended learning as there are a lot of opportunities for improvements in this space.

PerformancePoint Planning Server training

Hi there! My name is Joanne Hendrickson and I work as a writer here at Microsoft on the PerformancePoint Server Content Publishing team. I, too, will be a regular contributor to this blog discussing all things PerformancePoint. I am passionate about getting you the clearest, most valuable content to help you solve your business problems using clean, simple approaches. I try to frame a solution answering the "Why?" and find that type of adult-learning approach can serve us all well as we tackle the challenges in front of us.

One great way to get in the know about Planning is to attend a Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Planning implementation workshop that will be offered at Microsoft's Denver offices starting in September.

These are PPS workshops, solely focused on Planning, that last 4½ days. As the course description states, this course: "walks through setup of a budgeting solution for an enterprise-level entity. Company and business scenarios are presented to the students with requirements and budget assumptions, offering a discussion on how to prepare for a Planning implementation. As part of the class deliverables, students will create an application, set up dimensions, models and load data. Profit and Loss budget input forms are built, including sub ledger detail forms such as Human Resources and Revenue modeling. Business rules are defined to further customize the input forms. Students will set up Security and define processes to replicate a real-world user experience. Reports are designed in various formats to show the end results needed to analyze the planning information." Now really, how fun is that?! Sign up! Any partners are welcome. 

Here are the registration details:
