Creating Your First Dashboard

As explained earlier, a PPS Dashboard is a container for displaying reports and scorecards, organized in a meaningful way that makes sense to business users and decision-makers. Hence the creation of a dashboard effectively involves planning and creating individual dashboard elements (that is, reports and scorecards) and deploying the dashboard to SharePoint.

At a higher level, to create a PPS dashboard, you need to perform the following tasks, in this sequence:

1. Create a new data source; say, pointing to the Adventure Works cube.

4. Deploy the dashboard to SharePoint.
