Biz Sharp more news

From ActiveWin comes a pointer to this.

"

The long-rumored BizSharp" or "Biz#" offering will be known as PerformancePoint Server 2007 and be billed as a full-function score carding, analysis and financial planning server.

It is due to beta this fall and to ship in mid 2007, the company said."

It is going to include the BSM and Proclarity features and is targeting Cognos and Hyperion. No surprise there then.

There is an interesting quote from "An analytics rival" that says they are not afraid as it will require SQL Server 2005 and Windows. If they are not afraid then they should be. If MS prices it as aggressively as history would suggest they will, then I believe that organizations will be quite happy to mix a Windows Server stack into their already mixed infrastructure. I can see this having a massive shake up especially in prices.
