After The Rational Guide to Microsoft Business Scorecard Manager 2005 was released many people asked "so when's the PPS book coming?". Adrian Downes and I remained decidedly quiet about the idea of another book. It was, in fact, always our intention to write a PerformancePoint book, with the aim of publishing as close to RTM as possible.
Early on in the planning process we found that a single Rational Guide just didn't contain enough pages to cover the product adequately; to remedy this we wrote two books.
We are pleased to announce that the following books are soon to be published via Rational Press:
The Rational Guide to Monitoring and Analyzing with Microsoft Office to PerformancePoint Server 2007 (available November 2007)
The Rational Guide to Planning with Microsoft Office to PerformancePoint Server 2007 (available December 2007)
Based on the feedback from readers and bloggers, Adrian and I have found that the interest in learning the product is massive. Our titles are designed specifically to help you get up to speed quickly with the Monitor - Analyze - Plan feature areas of PerformancePoint.
