PerformancePoint - Pricing

With the recent changes to PerformancePoint Server the way it is procured and licensed is changing. If like me, you still want to offer clients a BI solution which uses PerformancePoint the following may be of interest - good news, it is getting cheaper (thanks to the guys at Microsoft who gave me the information):

· Until April 1st, the only way to acquire PPS is to buy it at the product list price. It is not “free” until April 1st.

· From April 1st until the day before Office 14 launch, the only way to acquire PPS is via MOSS (Standard+Enterprise) CAL + SA. They call it an “SA entitlement”. PPS will not be an additional license cost.

· With Office 14, PPS 2007 will become part of SharePoint. This means that you will need MOSS (Standard+Enterprise) CAL. No SA will be required.

To see some examples of PPS in action check out the following links Geo, Retail. As always comments and feedback are welcome!
