Well, PerformancePoint Server 2007 has shipped. The launch event took place in New York a few days ago. Remember, that this was not the fireworks and streamers type launch - the really colourful general availability / volume licensing events will be coming in November. The NYC event was really just to say that the RTM version is built and is ready for use by MSDN subscribers.
...and now for the bad news. The SAP BW 3.5 multidimensional data source connector that existed in CTP builds (including CTP4) has been cut. The RTM build of PerformancePoint Server Monitoring does not support connections to SAP BW 3.5. This feature was cut at the very last minute.
I don't know about anyone else out there but this feature represents a deal-breaker to several companies. I have worked with in several large MS customers recent times who also have substantial investments in SAP BW infrastructure. Many made the strategic decision to align themselves with PPS over other products because they were told that PPS would support SAP BW connectivity.
I know, I know, CTPs are just CTPs and we can't rely on the feature set to stay the same once RTM arrives. Nonetheless, I think the decision to cut this particular data source at the last minute was a big mistake.
I have logged a suggestion on Connect to get the SAP BW data source put back into the product. Vote for it here. If you know anyone who may be affected by this, get them to vote too.
UPDATE: Tim Kent has left a comment informing us that the evaluation versions of PPS are available from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/results.aspx?pocId=&freetext=performancepoint&DisplayLang=en
