I've decided to make a post to round up all the learning days of MOC 50429 SharePoint 2010 Business Intelligence. Hope this somehow helps you reach all the data:
SharePoint 2010 BI Center and Excel Services
SharePoint 2010 PerformancePoint Dashboard
SharePoint 2010 Designer
SharePoint 2010 and BI: PowerPivot and Entity Profile Page
Access and Visio Services and Spatial Data in SharePoint 2010
I would also like include for all us beginners videoes with basic steps on all the services you have for BI in SharePoint 2010.

I have recently finished MOC 50429 SharePoint 2010 Business Intelligence with Lior Cohen Amikam which I found very enlightening. I thought I’d share with you some of the excerpts from my summaries throughout the course. It’s a mix of ideas of what to do with SharePoint BI abilities and a short description of what they are. This is the sixth post in a series of posts that I am making from the material of the course:
Reporting Services 2008 R2
In Report Builder 3.0 we can use report parts that exist on the Report Server. In Reporting Services in Visual Studio,...

We installed SQL Server 2008 R2 about 2 months ago, and I recently tried to use a new feature in Reporting Services 2008 R2. I used the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) to open a new Report Server Project. After creating a data source I also defined a shared dataset (a new feature to SSRS 2008 R2). I put some of the fields into a table and tried to run the report (still inside the BIDS). But I failed with an error:
The report preview failed because the report could not be built. Read the errors, warnings and messages in...

Ok, so the unexpected happened - about a month and a half after interviewing Mr. Donald Farmer, I got to interview Mr. Amir Netz and Mr. Ariel Netz! I know!...
You probably remember Mr. Amir Netz from his appearance in the recent keynote session in the BI conference in New Orleans. He spoke about what's going to be new in PowerPivot. When I heard he was coming to Israel for a conference discussing Panorama and PowerPivot, I decided I'd try to get a few more tidbits from him...
In the keynote session, Mr. Netz had talked about adding the ability to...

Hot off the press! I just read on Teo Lachev's blog that Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Feature Pack RTM - ed. Yeah, I know! I have to admit this is also slightly amusing for me, as just this morning I asked a Microsoft consultant if he knew when it's suppose to drop...So you know what this means, you can now download a standalone version of Report Builder 3.0, PowerPivot for Excel and Data Mining Add-ins for Office 2007. Each can be downloaded by itself or as a whole package.
If you're looking to check out all the new...

ב Reporting Services 2008 R2 הדוח שלנו יכול להפוך ל data source בפני עצמו מאחר וכעת ניתן להתחבר אליו ב PowerPivot דרך ה Atom data feed.
הכוונה היא להציע את PowerPivot בחינם מתוך רצון שיעודד את הלקוחות לקנות רשיון ל SharePoint 2010.
PowerPivot מהווה סוג של mid tier בין Excel Services ל AS Engine מבחינת ה SharePoint.
שילוב ה PowerPivot עם SharePoint 2010 מאפשרת ניהול שלהם בקלות - זיהוי דוחות ה PowerPivot הכבדים ביותר מבחינת דרישות המשאבים שלהם וזיהוי רמת התכיפות בה משתמשים בקבצים השונים. ניתן כך להזהות מה דורש משאבים רבים לאורך זמן רב ולשקול לבנות לו קוביה.
מעבר לכך, ניהול...
