Yesterday, Microsoft announced the availability of two new Microsoft Office 2003 Business Intelligence (BI) Accelerators: the Microsoft Office Business Scorecards Accelerator and the Microsoft Office Excel Add-in for SQL Server Analysis Services. The Business Scorecards Accelerator is a Web-based application that enables a company to simplify the measurement and management of key performance metrics to more easily communicate, drive, and measure business strategy. The Excel Add-in for Analysis Services is a flexible reporting and analysis tool that lets you access and analyze data directly in Excel. Both accelerators are now available for download at no additional cost to users who have valid licenses for the underlying Microsoft products.
