Microsoft delivers business intelligence through three layers:

  • Performance management
    There are three critical components of performance management: monitoring, analytics, and planning. With Microsoft BI all three are brought together to help give everyone in your health organization the information they need to make informed decisions. Quickly and easily create dashboards and scorecards with Microsoft Office Excel 2007 spreadsheet software, so that everyone can align with departmental and organizational goals. Automate the supporting processes with Microsoft Office Visio 2007 drawing and diagramming software, display process metrics and KPIs in Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 business intelligence software, and manage the workflow with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Office SharePoint Server 2007 also lets you share reports and analysis, and collaborate with colleagues. Learn more about performance management.
  • Reporting and analysis
    Equip your people with reporting and analysis tools and technologies that will help capture the structured and unstructured information they use to make decisions. Easily create reports and perform analysis with Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Reporting Services. Pivot functionality and slice and dice lets you look at data different ways and drill down to explore trends. Of course, users can always count on Office Excel 2007 to manipulate data and create reports.
  • Data warehouse
    Get insight into the data you need through an integrated, centrally managed, and trusted data source. Microsoft offers an enterprise-ready BI platform with SQL Server. Many healthcare organizations are using SQL Server for data and records management, and so are already familiar with how easy it is to manage. Combine data from multiple sources into one location and provide access to information from a unified, trusted database, using SQL Server as your data warehouse.
  • The Microsoft BI approach
    Microsoft BI solutions provide a cost-effective way to provide organization-wide access to information using familiar tools that are flexible enough to meet the wide range of needs, across a wide range of users. By utilizing many of the existing tools you have in place today, Microsoft BI can help reduce the incremental cost for new solutions and help speed up delivery time. Users at all levels can create reports and perform analysis, and IT staff resources are freed up to work on other critical infrastructure needs.

    In the past, BI has been only for the few specialists who have been trained to query and format data. It's time to think bigger about BI. Whether at the personal, departmental, or organization level, Microsoft BI provides all workers with easy access to relevant, actionable information, when they need it.

    • Organizational BI
      Used to achieve the larger strategic initiatives, such as operating margin, return on investment on strategic investments, and quality of care goals. Office SharePoint Server 2007 makes it easy to share and collaborate on progress toward organizational goals.
    • Departmental BI
      Helps your people work more effectively as a team, ensuring the goals of the department are met. Workers can create reports and dashboards in Office Excel that display key process metrics.
    • Personal BI
      Helps workers in tasks they do every day. Using the Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 messaging and collaboration client, workers can manage individual goals and tasks, while Office Visio 2007 can help workers develop and manage processes.
