I haven’t been posting as much recently as I have been focusing on getting the Microsoft Performance Point Server certification. This is gained by passing exam 70-556, and on passing, awards you with the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Performance Point Server certification.
Performance Point Server is a product based on the Proclarity platform of Business Intelligence products. Proclarity has been developing Business Intelligence products over the Microsoft stack since 1995, and in April 2006, was bought out by Microsoft.
Microsoft has now integrated these applications more closely with its own Business Intelligence tools and has released them under a new application suite called Performance Point Server.
The exam covers a wide range of topics relating to PPS – installation, configuration, configuring dimensions, models, rules and dashboards.
