Introduction to Microsoft PerformancePoint Server
Decisions makers need to drive performance by accelerating business decision making, while adapting to changing business conditions and enforcing corporate governance. The new Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 allows organizations to build reliable plans faster and execute against them by aligning and driving accountability across business operations. It enables organizations to improve their corporate performance process by integrating monitoring, analysis and planning into a single application.

Effective Planning and Performance Management
Hitachi Consulting, a recognized leader in both the Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management industries, will discuss how companies of all sizes are making the planning process the key activity for strategy execution, how to incorporate all aspects of the organization in this process and how an integrated application & technology suite best supports this important management initiative.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Deployment Best Practices
Businesses depend on business processes. While those processes often involve software, the most important processes in many organizations depend on people. Automating interactions among the people who participate in a process can improve how that process functions, increasing its efficiency and lowering its error rate. Using software that supports this kind of human workflow can make organizations more effective.  To support these processes, organizations have turned to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 to help implement effective and efficient systems to support workflow and forms management.  This presentation includes an overview of solutions implemented using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, and best practices based on recent deployments.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from industry thought leaders and your peers.
