PPS Blog en Francais und Buch auf Deutsch

There seems to be PPS blogs popping up all over the place. One that caught my eye recently was that of Aurelien Koppel, a Paris-based BI consultant. Aurelian blogs in French, something I know will bring a tear to the eye of both Bruno Aziza, a Frenchman, and Adrian Downes, a French-Canadian. For those who studied or are familiar with the language this will present a way to stay up to date on the latest in the PPS world and dust off your long-lost French skills. If, however, you define 'language' skills as fluency in C#, C++ and VB check out the Windows Live translator tool which does a pretty good job at converting the entire blog in one hit and displaying the side-by-side results.

Did you study German instead of French at school? Well you're in luck. MS Press released a book on PPS Planning written in German: Unternehmensplanung mit Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007.

Aside from Aurelian's blog being a worthy read, it certainly doesn't hurt to keep the French side of my brain working!

Also, check out Alexis Molteni's blog for more francophone PPS 2007goodness (http://blog.sql-it.com/)
