Really useful reference book for SharePoint and with BI components such as Excel Services, Performance Point etc. It even has a good guide for building out a SharePoint environment. I used this as a good ref for 2013 SharePoint as well as 2010, although the Reporting Services is very different in 2013 and SQL 2012.

Great Reference with Working Examples 1 Jun. 2011
By Jason M Apergis - Published on
Format: Paperback
I work for Microsoft specifically doing technical SharePoint sales for US Federal markets. I just completed reading this book and this is a great resource for SharePoint solution developers to use to create BI solutions. The writers took the specific approach of providing end-to-end examples of how to implement PerformancePoint, Excel Services, PowerPivot, SSRS, and Visio. I personally like the SSRS, Visio and PowerPivot sections. The PerformancePoint chapters are very detailed and really show you how to build up your first dashboard. The writers focus less on the decision process for which BI technology to select versus actually showing practitioners how to build solutions. This is the reason why I really liked this book.

Greatly Underwhelmed 30 May 2012
By Dennis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book last year when it first came out, hoping to get greater insight into the inner working of how the BI features of SharePoint worked as I am experienced with SQL Server BI but not so much with SharePoint, which offers a new complexity and has become a requirement for any Microsoft BI implementation. I had been impressed with the "Unleashed" series from Sams and their SQL Server and Windows titles, so I thought this would be a great deep dive.
This book is not a deep dive.
For the most part, the information is valid and appears to be correct, but is mostly simple explanations of the BI features in SharePoint, a quick step-by-step on how to get it up and running in a simple environment, and that is it. It is literally some of the same info that can be found online in Microsoft's improved Books Online catalog, although BOL does no favors in actually trying to find the information needed, so the book has that advantage. The 'troubleshooting' section is usually a few bullet points on about a half-page, nothing that goes in-depth or explains anything as to why or how, really.

This book is technically correct and has an aggregation of useful information for the beginner, which is why I gave it three-stars, but the title is extremely misleading. This book is for the newcomer to both SharePoint and Business Intelligence, and does not offer more than a few simple basics to someone with no experience in those areas.

SQL Server and SharePoint Integration 20 Jun. 2011
By Jeremy Kadlec - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a SQL Server DBA and Developer with some SharePoint experience, I really like the chapters in this book related to SharePoint and SQL Server Reporting Services integration. I think the level of detail for the SSRS installation, configuration and integration makes a great deal of sense and is easy to follow. On the development side, I think the SSRS development and SharePoint web parts are a great explanation and can get you started in the right direction. Great job on this book!
Used this for 15 students - very successful 23 Aug. 2012
By Frank Bergdoll - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I teach a program on Business Intelligence for post-graduate students where we do a 16-week, full time BI program that takes students from Design, to Admin, to building, to presentation. For Performance Applications, I was looking for a resource that gave a good, hands-on overview of how SharePoint could be used for delivery from a user-down or warehouse-up perspective.

This book accomplished the objectives I had. My main interests were in the chapters round Excel, PivotPoint, and PerformancePoint. The Visio material was nice, but not essential to my needs - however, that is just me.

The class all created some very excellent end-to-end solutions using this book as a major resource - so the "proof is in the results" for this book.

I would highly recommend a co-purchase of this book with the Sharepoint PowerPivot Unleashed book and possibly the Delivering BI using MS SQL book as well. A great triad of information that should be sufficient to build something useful.
