What happened to SharePoint 2007 KPIs?

In this release, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 adds important new tools for Business Intelligence (BI). The new tools greatly increase the ways you can collect, present, and share information. Two especially big additions are PerformancePoint Services, SQL PowerPivot for Excel, and SQL PowerPivot for SharePoint.

As part of this change, SharePoint Server 2007 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) have a new name, SharePoint Status Indicators. The new name helps highlight the differences between BI features in SharePoint 2007 and those in SharePoint Server 2010. For more information about Business Intelligence features in SharePoint, including information about different options, see the articles in the See Also section.
