PerformancePoint dashboards and Web Parts offer significant advantages to users. They are interactive, connected to live data, and are updated in real time. You can do any or all of the following with a PerformancePoint dashboard:
Dill up or down in the various scorecards and reports that you see
Filter the data so you can focus on specific information
Open a report in a new window
Change analytic charts to analytic grids or vice versa
Export the dashboard to Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, Excel 2010 or Excel 2007.
Each scorecard and report that you see on a PerformancePoint dashboard is displayed in a Web Part, which functions essentially as a separate module on the SharePoint page. The PerformancePoint dashboard can contain a single Web Part or several Web Parts. They can also contain more than one Web page, each displaying one or more Web Parts.
