Kristina Kerr Senior Product Manager for Microsoft Business Intelligence is presenting and helping the group connect the dots of the Microsoft business intelligence strategy. In the world of information overload Microsoft is using SharePoint to organize and deliver our business information more relevant and focused. Kristina makes an interesting point around the "vision" slide in her deck...this slide is old and that's good because Microsoft has had a BI strategy in place for 10 years and they are on target and executing to their plan.

The basics of the Microsoft plan is to help you as a user get to the following:
"Personal and Organic" BI and "Shared and Intentional" BI

Goal for Self Service Personal/Organic Business Intelligence
Easy discovery of data
Simple intuitive tools Adhoc
creative and agile

Goal for Shared and Intentional Business Intelligence or Performance Management
Consistent Corp definitions, KPI's
Corporate Polices and processes
Contextual and accountable

Microsoft continues to show greater levels of integration within its various applications pulling business intelligence and performance management onto the desktop and making the average user unaware that they are using business intelligence. All of which is positive.
