Delivering KPIs with Analysis Services - Peter Myers
Author: Darren Gosbell Date Posted: 5/12/2013 7:54:21 PM
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are important measurements that influence behaviour and allow an organization to evaluate whether they are meeting target for specific objectives.

This presentation will demonstrate how KPIs can be defined in Analysis Services, in both multidimensional and tabular BI Semantic Models, and then made available for consistent reporting using Excel, Excel Services, Reporting Services and PerformancePoint Services.

Consideration will be given to where the KPI sources its target data from, and will explore additional capabilities of the multidimensional BI Semantic Model to collect planning data, specifically by using cube write-back, and Data Mining to seed planning values. The presentation will also show how the Excel 2013 What-If Analysis feature can be used to collect planning data from users.
