Every organization has its own unique goals. For example, a business might have a yearly revenue goal while a school may focus on their graduation rate. Whatever the scenario, it’s important you have an analysis tool in place to help you reach the goals you set each day, month, and year. Key Performance Indicators, also known as KPI, help an organization define and measure progress toward organizational goals in a structured and timely way. Microsoft SharePoint makes goals much easier to reach through browser-based rendering of Microsoft Excel workbooks and easy-to-use tools for building dashboards, scorecards, and key performance indicators. Here’s a look at a few of these tools…
Decomposition Tree: By using the decomposition tree within Microsoft SharePoint 2010, you can access the information you need by just using your browser. You can look at the data and see the inherent relationships that exist for each key point. This helps you prepare a more detailed and complete analysis of your business.
Performance Scorecards: In SharePoint 2010, you can take advantage of Excel Services and PerformancePoint Services connected to SharePoint Server 2010. These services help you create scorecards that keep your company on track. Having full insight into the status of your performance overall will ensure a productive environment and profitable returns.
Dashboards: Easy to read graphs and charts help everyone in your company stay on the same page. This access to deep insight helps ensure your company runs as smoothly as possible. Everyone and every process are aligned to the KPI’s your company has in place through the use of SharePoint dashboards. Employees can drill down to the level of detail needed to make accurate and timely business decisions.
