Install PowerPivot for SharePoint on a Domain Controller – TechNet Articles – Home – TechNet Wiki

Today I decided to begin building out a new SharePoint VM server for demos and development. The goal of this VM exercise is to explore the different options available for Business Intelligence solutions.

In the space of SharePoint Business Intelligence, there are a lot of different offerings under 2010, so understanding what each offers and the caveats of each one is very important. Also, investigating use cases and building demonstrations helps communicate to business users why they would choose one offering over another — not to mention it is a form of entertainment for me to see how they work and build out sample solutions. The current offerings for BI under SharePoint 2010 include:

  • Excel Services
  • Access Services
  • Visio Services
  • PerformancePoint
  • PowerPivot

Recently, I’ve been having a lot of discussions with a colleague concerning PowerPivot, so I decided to install it and see what it has to offer or why I would even venture to recommend it to a client. Following the instructions in the following article allowed me to get up and running quickly (and successfully)

I have been a developer of web based solutions since early 2001 delivering solutions to a wide array of organizations using ASP, ASP.NET and SharePoint. I was introduced to SharePoint in 2003 when the consulting firm I worked for at the time introduced it into the workplace. I began working with MOSS 2007 as soon as Microsoft released the RTM version in November 2006. The platform was implemented at the organization I worked for in 2007 and went live in March of that year. I was tasked with the administration and ongoing development of the platform. I currently work as a SharePoint Architect with Artis Consulting, developing solutions for a wide variety of business problems. The goal of this blog is to share my discoveries developing solutions with SharePoint. I welcome your comments and feedback to any post -- and I welcome suggestions for future topics.
