Perhaps you’ve come across a Business Intelligence (BI) Center site and you don’t know what it’s for. Or, maybe you’re looking for that perfect place to store and share reports with people in your organization. Whether you’re an administrator, report author, or information consumer, a BI Center site can be a valuable resource. It’s not just a place to store files; it’s also a way to bring together information and processes using a variety of BI tools.
A BI Center site is a SharePoint site that was designed especially for BI content, such as data connections, reports, scorecards, and dashboards. A BI Center site has certain characteristics that set it apart from other kinds of SharePoint sites. These include prebuilt lists and libraries designed especially for BI content, access to PerformancePoint Services content (for on-premises customers), sample files, and links to helpful information about BI tools.
