Enable PerformancePoint on SharePoint 2010

By | January 15, 2010

This blog post will describe how you I enabled PerformancePoint 2010 on my SharePoint 2010 with PowerPivot integraton where I used the VidasM installaton guide. This is by no way the best way to do this but it enables you to play with PerformancePoint.  I used (and took some quotes) the PerformancePoint team excellent blog post Deploying PerformancePoint 2010 Soup to Nuts as a base (this is the official way to do it).

 We start by creating a site collection:

Set a name, location and choose  Business intelligence center as template:

Site should be created ok:

Now we are going to turn on the PerformancePoint services:
Go to central admin , system settings, manage services on serve.  You need to start the PerformancePoint Services and the Secure Store Service:

Once the Business Intelligence Center has been created, the administrator must create a PerformancePoint service application. This creates the service application proxy that facilitates web service calls between the WFE and the app server, along the Windows Communication Framework.

Go to Application Management, Service Applications , Manage service applications, click new, select performancepoint service application:

Last step is configuring the service app, give it a name and add check the “Add this service application’s proxy to the farm’s default proxy list” and create a new app pool.

Read the entire PerformancePoint team blog post for the details on the why.

When you finished this last step you can start playing with PerformancePoint and publish the dashboards:
