(Or download the demo.)
(You may experience a delay while the demo is loading.)
A key performance indicator (KPI)) is a visual cue that communicates progress against a predefined measure or business goal. KPIs are valuable tools that help teams, managers, and businesses quickly evaluate their progress against measurable goals. On a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site, you can create KPI lists to help your organization measure its progress against its business goals. To create a KPI, you first create a KPI list to which you add one or more KPIs. Office SharePoint Server 2007 enables you to create new indicators in a KPI list by using any of the following:
Data in SharePoint lists.
Data in Excel workbooks.
Data from Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services.
Manually entered information.
In this demo, you'll see how you can create KPIs using both manually entered information and data that is stored in a SharePoint list. You will also see how you can create a KPI based on a specific view of a SharePoint list. Finally, you will see how the status of a KPI changes as the data in the list changes.
This demo is the first demo in a series of two. After you finish viewing this demo, see Demo: Display KPIs in a dashboard to learn how you can display KPIs in a dashboard page on a Report Center site.
