We are working with local SharePoint gurus Dolphin Networks on a couple of Intranet projects.
One question we consistently get asked is What is SharePoint and what is BI? Great questions that are not that easy to answer. Even Steve Ballmer seems confused at the launch of the SharePoint 2009 Conference. See YouTube video.
However, the clever chaps at Dolphin made a video that helps to explain what they are and how they work together to bring tangible business benefits.

Any good foundation for a business intelligence project starts with a well thought out data warehouse design.
Business Intelligence is a big subject. For some it can mean having a reporting portal to run regular static reports on day-to-day business data. For others it can mean operating a full data warehouse hosting large amounts of company wide data and offering self-service dashboard building and ad-hoc reporting for their business managers. BI can also encompass Big Data to gain some insights and value from non-relational data from many sources that come together to provide answers and value that might not be so main stream and obvious.
SharePoint is Microsoft’s collaboration and document management platform. It’s the best-selling Microsoft product ever! Thats quite a statement coming from the worlds largest software vendor. The capabilities of SharePoint are far greater than what we can describe in a short piece. Hence the video. Enough to say some large companies run their entire organisation through SharePoint, and many smaller companies use SharePoint for their day-to-day document management requirements.
