Many companies works with clients to design and develop analytical environments and interactive reporting metaphors (portals, reports, dashboards and scorecards) that simplify data access and information presentation in ways that allow non-technical users the ability and flexibility to perform analysis and gain new insights.
Fully featured solutions deliver critical decision information that supports the needs of all functional business areas and business analysts, managers and executives.

Greetings, everyone! I have tested the SharePoint 2013 preview edition’s new Business Intelligence Center. The following are some of my experiences and thoughts while conducting these tests.

SharePoint 2013 overview

SharePoint 15 screenshot – Business intelligence

At first I created a new SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence site. It`s look and feel are much more attractive than a SharePoint 2010 Business Intelligence site. The Home page of the Business Intelligence center is more clear and simple to use.

SharePoint 15 screenshots Business Analysis
SharePoint 15 screenshots – Business Intelligence

Taking a look at Excel Services and at the data in the new BI site Excel workbook, we see a less cluttered page with clear charts and more useful Excel items with graphics and indicators.

Excel services SharePoint 2012
Excel services in SharePoint 2012

With Excel Services SharePoint 2013 you can sort your data, filter it and refresh data entries at the web-browser without pressing F5. Since it`s a cross-browser service, you can view your data on IE, Mozilla FF, Google Chrome, and Safari and at mobile devices as well. As an example I chose two years on the “Date” scroll-bar and the graphic for “Reclining Lawn Chair Historic Prices” was refreshed automatically.

Another useful service of SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence is PerformancePoint services. The start page of PerformancePoint is more helpful and useful than before. The Run Dashboard Designer is on the start page so you don`t need to search for it on subsequent pages.

SharePoint 2013 Business Intelligence

During my testing, I noticed other useful changes in SharePoint 2013’s Business Intelligence Center. Some of these changes are the result of SharePoint 2013 development and some were from Microsoft’s new SQL 2012. I think you will agree that the new SharePoint 2013 BI capabilities will bring new life to and faster user adoption of Microsoft’s Business Intelligence Center.
